After three seasons of pulling on Phillies red in the home clubhouse at Bright House Field, Raul Ibanez found himself changing into a Yankees uniform in the visiting clubhouse Saturday.

"It's strange," he said.

Strange, but still good.

Ibanez, the Phillies' primary left fielder the last three seasons had hoped to continue his career with the Phillies in 2012, but the two sides moved on. The classy 39-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Yankees last month and is expected to serve as one of the team's designated hitters.
