Mike Mussina was the latest Yankee to get injured in what proved to be a 5-1 loss against Minnesota. The Yankees have to be wondering what’s going on.
Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano and Joe Torre will wear No. 42 in honor of Jackie Robinson on Sunday. Meanwhile, this notebook updates A-Rod’s hot streak and a great night for minor leaguer Chase Wright.
Had no idea until I got back last night that the great Kurt Vonnegut had passed away. “Slaughterhouse-Five” is one of those books they made you read in school that turned out to be compelling.
Of course he also had a great cameo in “Back to School.” For my money, the best Rodney Dangerfield movie other than “Caddyshack.”
Time to leave freezing cold Minnesota for sunny California. I’ll check back in later today with hopefully an update from Brian Cashman.
