Yankees finally back home

After a train ride from Baltimore — where there were Yankees writers scattered throughout the Amtrak station — I’ve made it back to New York in time to finish a story for Sunday’s paper, pick up some mail at the post office and buy some groceries.  

I’m taking a few days off this home stand, so Brian Heyman will have the lineup and notes from Yankee Stadium. Until then, how’s this for the Robinson Cano leader board?

Cano leads the American League in hits, runs, batting average and slugging percentage. He’s third in home runs, fourth in on-base percentage and fourth in extra-base hits.

“He’s in one of those zones right now,” Derek Jeter said. “Every player wants to be in it, but they come few and far between. It seems like everything he’s doing right now is perfect, and he’s playing as well as I’ve ever seen him.”
