The Yankees are pursuing Eric Gagne as the trade deadline approaches. This story also has some updates on Joba Chamberlain and Jason Giambi.
This is the best story of the day. Bobby Murcer teed it up at Joe Torre’s charity golf tournament. Alex Myers was on hand.
Minor-league managers aren’t there for wins and losses. It’s about player development. Brian Heyman spoke to several skippers for this story including Mike Gillespie of Staten Island.
Tom Glavine goes for his 300th victory tonight. John Delcos looks at the man behind the milestone.
As most of you know, I covered the Mets before I moved over to the Yanks. I got to know Glavine pretty well and he’s easily one of the best athletes I have dealt with. We don’t ask much of the players but Tom always goes beyond. He makes himself available in the winter to answer questions about MLBPA matters or other issues that crop up. He’s also a helpful guy during the season.
He understands that being available to the media helps the fans. Beyond all that, he’s a heck of a pitcher and could be the last to win 300 for a while. Good luck to him tonight.
