    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler.

    Jun 25, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Adam Lind

    Banished to the minors last month in part because he wasn’t hitting and in part because he wasn’t in shape physically, Adam Lind is back with the Blue Jays after batting .392 with eight homers and a 1.112 OPS in 32 games at Triple-A. Those numbers are inflated by Las Vegas and the Pacific Coast…

  11. Bo Jackson, Deion Sanders… Julian Edelman?

    The New England Patriots’ Julian Edelman is the NFL’s lone two-way player, having filled in admirably at cornerback in addition to his wide receiver duties last season. Apparently, that only scratches the surface of his versatility, though. “He worked out for us at shortstop and took ground balls and fly balls, and he took batting…

    Torii Hunter, Mark Trumbo

    Angels 10, Rockies 8: Mark Trumbo hit two three-run homers to help the Angels complete what was nothing short of an annihilation of the Rockies’ pitching staff. Trumbo is at .326/.380/.632. It would have been optimistic to predict those numbers from Pujols before the season started. Nationals 4, Red Sox 3: Bryce Harper had the…
