The Yankees rolled on, defrocking the Padres last night. Brian Heyman has the story.
Chien-Ming Wang was able to laugh a little through the pain. This notebook also has updates on Dan Giese, Billy Traber, Ian Kennedy and Brian Bruney.
The Yankees threw their support to Willie Randolph. Brian also has that story.
Omar Minaya tried to explain why he fired Randolph. John Delcos has that story from California.
Columnist Sam Borden spoke to Randolph’s mom about how her son was treated. Terrific piece here.
A few LoHud.com readers (and they’re our folks, I believe) told stories of their unpleasant ousters. Interesting idea for a story by Julie Ganz and Rachel Stern.
Mets fans think Willie got a raw deal. Jared Diamond has that story.
The All-Star Game FanFest sounds like a good time. Harold Gutman has the details.
Lots of baseball coverage there. That should get you through lunch, slackers.
Padres-Yanks tonight. Check back later for the lineup.
