News Roundup

(Bronx, NY) – There is never a lack of news in baseball, the sporting world or the Yanks.  The Yanks will take on the Royals for the 2nd of a 3-game set tonight but here is a brief look at various news items:

  • Phil Hughes is set to start throwing again.  Still not sure what the velocity problem is attributed to but we can hope for the best.  Almost a month on the DL now.
  • Long time NY Daily News cartoonist, Bill Gallo, passes away at the age of 88.  He was a great one.
  • After 49 years of service, Yankee trainer Gene Monahan announced he will retire after the season is over.  He deserves it and will be missed!
  • Rafael Soriano will have an MRI done on his elbow in an attempt to figure out why he is in pain.
  • Jeter has gone from cold to hot.  Jeter is hitting .406 (13-for-32) with two home runs and four RBI during the streak, lifting his average from .242 to .283.
  • Eric Chavez (foot) hopes to return from the DL in early June.

  1. The Yankees are slumping. Frustrating. And now there is a Jorge Posada controversy.

  2. Even bigger than Jeter approaching 3,000 is Tom’s blog is approaching 30,000 hits!

    Through all the bumps and bruises, the good streaks and bad streaks of the first month of the season the Yanks are sitting on top of the best division in baseball at first place. Hopefully the bats heat up with Jeter getting on base a little more and the Yanks keep putting runs on the board because thier staff is going to need the continued help.
