He’s rested and mashing. A-Rod went deep and the Yankees beat the Mariners. That’s seven straight.
Eric Hinske is happy to be back in the A.L. East. This notebook also has updates on Ramiro Pena, Jose Molina, A-Rod, Ken Griffey Jr. and Xavier Nady.
Lots of celebrity deaths lately. The great actor Karl Malden passed away yesterday at 97.
Talk about a career. He played opposite Marlon Brando in On The Waterfront and A Streetcar Named Desire. Then in the ’70s, he was in the terrific television crime drama The Streets of San Francisco with a young Michael Douglas. If you grew up back then, there were a ton of good cop shows and Streets was one of the best.
Malden also played Gen. Omar Bradley in Patton, one of my favorite flicks. He also did an episode of the West Wing late in his life.
