Bronx Bomber Blues RJ Suitor commented that it makes it more difficult for his spring training media staff providing Yankees Spring Training Media Reports to try to divide up to cover both Yankee SS teams playing simultaneously. Suitor states "Playing split-squad games is something that happens frequently in spring training to assure all teams are getting their players in enough live action games to prepare for the regular season. It can become a logistics problem for our media teams who we must divide in two., If the Yankees can manage so too can the Bronx Bomber Blues". Suitor added "As a media staff, you make it work so both ss teams get equal coverage. We managed just fine commented Suitor."
