    Yankees brass drove all the joy, excitement out of the Stadium

    If the previous Yankee Stadium was a “cathedral,” this one, almost from Day 1, sounds like one. Perhaps the life was drained from Friday night’s crowd after a 1-hour, 42-minute rain delay then a 2-1, 10-inning game that ran another 3:32. Still, the Yankees — the New York Yankees, for crying out loud — were in first place and there was something that resembled a crowd.

    Greg Bird and CC Sabathia both had positive results on Sunday as they look to return from injuries. Bird ran for the first time since receiving a cortisone shot on his bothersome right ankle last week and reported no problems. He’s been bothered by the bone bruise that resulted from fouling a ball off his ankle near the end of spring training. Bird has been out since May 2 and was just 6-for-60 before being sidelined on May 2. “I ran, hit and threw, and it all went well,” Bird said before the Yankees hosted the Rangers. “Hopefully, it’s a good sign.” Girardi was confident Bird would be able to resume his rehab stint soon. “I wouldn’t think we would take a long time [to start rehab],” Girardi
