In the Sunday Baseball Notes, author Vince Gennaro reveals why Roger Clemens made financial sense for the Yankees.
Gennaro wrote “Diamond Dollars”, which I highly recommend if you want to better understand the economics of baseball and how players can be judged based on their financial worth to the team. It’s a different way to look at putting together a roster.
Meanwhile, Matt DeSalvo handled Seattle again as the Yankees rolled to an easy win.
Scott Proctor dropped his appeal and started his suspension yesterday. At least he gets a few days off.
