Nice press box you have there, Yankees

Mar 9, 2010, 10:29 AM EDT

I was a little bummed because the Yankees have been the only team thus far to deny my press credentials for spring training.  I didn’t take it personally — there are about 1,380 reporters who want to cover the Yankees, and at some point it’s a numbers game — but I wasn’t pleased either.  Bright side: since the game I wanted to cover on Thursday is against the Braves I decided to go ahead and buy a ticket. Now I can both root, heckle and drink beer, so it’s going to be great.

Even greater than I thought, it turns out, given how awful it is to cover Yankees spring training games from the visiting press box.

    Dual purpose, Craig:
    Root, heckle, drink beer.
    Test the parameters of the weasel’s expense account gullibility

    At least one team has journalistic standards.
