It’s going to be a slow weekend in Yankee-land. With three games to relax and rest the regulars before the October grind, Joe Torre’s going to be playing a lot of Wilson Betemit and Shelley Duncan and not too much Derek Jeter and Hideki Matsui. I would like to see Ross Ohlendorf get into some games but more on that later.
Right now, I’d like to point you to some of the excellent work Tommy and Caleb are producing at Breaking Balls. Check it out:
- Caleb tries to figure out what Padres manager Bud Black should do to win the Wild Card this weekend and avoid a four- or five-way tie for three playoff spots.
- Tommy took a look at some the changes heading Houston’s way in the wake of the Ed Wade hiring.
- Tommy opened up the floor to discussions on the Cy Young Award and the MVP Award.
- Our very own Joseph P. looked at some key playoff matches.
- I posted on a tantalizing rumor involving the Twins and Dodgers.
