A couple of Yanks-related links that I couldn’t quite work into a full post:
Steve S — you all might know him better as The Artist — writes about the Hideki Matsui situation over at The Yankees Universe. Hideki is putting up good numbers, but is taking up the DH spot, which the Yanks could use for other purposes (i.e., getting vets a half-game off).
R.J. Anderson, writing for FanGraphs, notes that the Yankees have surplus offense in AAA. Unfortunately, one of those guys could use some more polish, and the rest are questionable to produce at the big league level. Still, it’s nice to have options, who are performing well, in the case of further injury.
Tyler Kepner talks to former umpire Jim Evans regarding Sunday’s protest. Evans runs through the situation, and thinks that the umps made the right call. The way he explains it, the Yanks won’t get another shot at the last two innings of the game.
