    Fact: the Yankees have a radar. It’s a bistatic radar, adapted from Soviet-era surface-to-air missile systems.  Most teams are still using monostatic radar making them far less lethal forces than are the Yankees.

Here’s the Angels’ current top 11, along with their 2011 numbers and all the positions they could see action at. Chris Iannetta: .238/.370/.414, 14 HR, 55 RBI,…

    Tonight is the deadline for free agents to accept or decline arbitration and Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that Carlos Pena will turn down the Cubs’ offer.
