Pre-Game: Collins says F-Mart will DH tomorrow

This morning at Citi Field, Terry Collins spoke with reporters about a variety of topics, essentially saying the following:

  • Fernando Martinez will be the designated hitter at Yankee Stadium tomorrow and Saturday, and Carlos Beltran will DH on Sunday.
  • He wants to make sure Jason Bay is comfortable with the idea of batting second, and he hasn’t talked to him about it yet.
  • He’s looking forward to his first Subway Series.
  • He thinks the gap between Triple-A and the majors is so great because players are pushed through their systems so fast now.
  • He thinks the fact Justin Turner is so confident in his abilities is a big factor for his recent success.
