The Yankees did something tonight they have not done much this season: they beat the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim, of the US, of the Galaxy…).
The game was played as though it was a playoff game–low scoring, with some key defensive plays and small-ball run scoring. Considering that right now the Yankees and Angels [...]
Brian Bruney is a bullpen anomaly.
After posting a 4.86 ERA in the first half, Bruney has seemingly settled down since the All-Star break, throwing 16 1/3 innings of 3.31 ERA ball. However, Bruney’s ERA is a beautiful illusion—the product of good luck and good defense. Over the last 30 days, Bruney has pitched 7 [...]
From Joel Sherman:
Robinson Cano is hitting .301 vs. lefty pitchers, the same as Joe Mauer. But Cano has a .551 slugging percentage vs. southpaws as compared to Mauer’s .446. In fact, Cano has the second-best slugging percentage in the AL when it comes to lefty batters vs. lefty pitchers (minimum 100 plate appearances). [...]
From Chad Jennings:
In a move that seemed to catch every player in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees clubhouse offguard, the New York Yankees called up speedy outfielder Freddy Guzman this morning. To make room for Guzman on the 40-man roster, right-handed pitcher Anthony Claggett (right) was designated for assignment.

Not just Willie, many of the best Negro League players were offered to the Yankees before winding up elsewhere. John Klima, the author of Willie’s Boys: The 1948 Birmingham Black Barons has an article in the New York Times discussing what he found in his research for his book. He writes:
Willie Mays [...]
This week, we saw two historic achievements by Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki. They got me thinking: which active (and recently retired) players belong in the Hall of Fame? Our era has produced a lot of superstars – more than I realized before I tried to put together a list – and they could start [...]
