A pair of Yankees showed their faces … well, made their voices heard, anyway … in the media today, though neither said anything all that interesting. They never do. First, Mark Teixeira appeared on the Dan Patrick Show to talk about a bunch of stuff, including Robinson Cano and Joe Girardi. The video is embedded above. Next, Hal Steinbrenner made a pair of radio appearances, first with Mike Francesa and then with Michael Kay. He didn’t say much either, though he did kinda sorta hint that Girardi’s contract situation could be resolved soon. We’ll see. Andy McCullough has the recaps.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The Athletics and Tigers are playing right now on TBS (Dan Straily vs. Doug Fister) while the Red Sox and Rays will start at 8:37pm ET on TBS (Jake Peavy vs. Jeremy Hellickson). Both the A’s and Sawx can advance to the ALCS with wins. All three hockey locals are in action plus the Nets are playing a preseason game. Lots of fun stuff tonight. Talk about any of it here.
