Derek Jeter caught up to a legend as the Yankees and beat the Rays again. And you’ll never guess who left the game with an injury. Brian Heyman has the story.
Interesting sidelight in this story is that the person who caught Jeter’s record-tying home run gave him the ball in exchange for a bat and a ball. Nice that there are still some people left in the world who aren’t greedy.
Robinson Cano (finally) got benched for his lack of hustle. This notebook also has updates on Phil Hughes, A-Rod and Humberto Sanchez.
Check out this MLB.com story about Doug Mientkiewicz and Ron Villone getting into a fight. Ronnie V played football in college and is a pretty big dude. That’s a fight Eye Chart doesn’t want.
If you missed this Bob Klapisch column in The Record you should check it out. He has some good insight into what’s going on with the Yankees.
