    Two rehab games in the book for The Captain, and so far so good. Derek Jeter played in his second rehab game yesterday — playing DH — and went 1 for 2 with two walks. Better news, however, came when he went first to third on a teammate’s single. Spontaneous running is the probably the…

    Alex Rodriguez

    You get the impression that the Yankees have figured out that the cuckoo 36 hours or so in which A-Rod tweeted, Cashman bleated and then the rumors about A-Rod’s sinister plot to do, well, something, weren’t in the team’s best interestes. Because based on this story in the Daily News, things are sorta getting back…

    Was waiting for this. Bob Klapisch — a man who never disappoints when it comes to the A-Rod/Jeter silliness — weighs in on L’affaire STFU: The fact alone that Rodriguez is on Twitter is irritating to the club. Put it this way: Derek Jeter would never end up on Twitter, talking about himself. The captain,…

    The injury hits just keep on coming for the Yankees, who announced that Kevin Youkilis needs surgery to repair a herniated disc and will be out for 10-12 weeks. That puts Youkilis’ season in jeopardy, because 10 weeks would get him into September and any setbacks would leave him running out of time. Youkilis hit…

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    Let’s get one thing out of the way at the outset: whatever results from the Biogenesis news, be it a lengthy suspension or otherwise, this will not “forever taint Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy” or whatever words anyone chooses to author to that melodramatic effect. Alex Rodriguez’s legacy was toast years ago, rightly or wrongly. A-Rod was…

    And I want to apologize in advance for Kay talking about Derek Jeter “having a catch.” Only in strange enclaves of the east coast do people “have a catch.” Everyone else in the world “plays catch.” Thank you.

    The Core Four: Derek Jeter. Mariano Rivera. Jorge Posada. And, um, maybe Clay Bellinger? I forget. Not important. What is important is that for years Yankees writers have always made sure to protect the necks of those guys, particularly Jeter and Rivera. Woe be unto anyone who is insufficiently reverent of them and woe, woe,…
