This is the current state of the AL East. The Yankees in 1st place at 12-8, and the Red Sox in last at 9-12. That’s not to say this is the way it will end. That would be absolutely absurd. The Yankees still have 142 games left to play. It’s just nice to see a complete reversal of the projected standings thus far, based on many experts in the pre-season.

- Carlos Silva, WCBS 880’s producer/engineer for Yankees games passed away this past Sunday after battling cancer. If you’ve ever listened to John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on the radio, his name should definitely sound familiar. He was 50 years old.
- Masahiro Tanaka, the big off-season prize faces a 5PM deadline on Friday to choose what team he’d like to play for. According to reports, the Yankees, Dodgers, Diamondbacks, White Sox and Cubs have all made offers to Tanaka. It stated, “most of those were for more than $100 million over six years.” Let’s hope the Yankees land this guy. He’d be a huge asset to both the Bronx Bombers and your fantasy baseball teams.
- The Yankees and Francisco Cervelli have agreed on a one-year contract reportedly worth $700K. Who knew Cervelli was still a thing? This allows him to avoid salary arbitration and he’s back in the picture. Last year, Cervelli fractured his right hand and was suspended 50 games by MLB for violating the league’s drug program, ending the rest of his season.

Chris Russo made back page headlines in yesterday’s paper when he called out his former partner, Mike Francesa, for going easy on Alex Rodriguez. Chris Russo admits himself that he’s “buddy buddy” with MLB commissioner Bud Selig, and spoke about how everyone in the business has their own “favorites.” Alex joined Mike in studio along with his lawyer, Jim McCarroll, fielding questions from The Sports Pope.
Alex said he “lost his mind” and “banged a table and kicked a briefcase” out of frustration when he realized that Bud Selig wasn’t coming in from Milwaukee to face him in person. He explained that it shows a lack of courage on the Selig’s behalf for handing out a 211-game suspension for something he didn’t do. Rodriguez said, “I shouldn’t serve one inning.” When asked if he used performance enhancing drugs, A-Rod simply stated, “no.”
What do you guys think? Was Mike giving A-Rod a “soft landing”?

With all the drama and news surrounding Alex Rodriguez, it doesn’t come to much of a surprise to see him don the latest cover of Sports Illustrated. It’s hard to tune into a television station these days that doesn’t mention his name. Major League Baseball is set to lay the hammer down on A-Rod and make him serve a suspension immediately. Apparently, Alex’s people and MLB are currently in talks to avoid a lifetime ban from the sport.

Jack Curry broke the story via Twitter:
The Yankees have signed Andy Pettitte to a 1-year minor league deal worth $2.5 million. The team is thrilled to have 240-game winner back.
Who saw this coming? I can’t say I did, although when I first heard he was retiring I thought he would have an itch to come back. The man is only 39 years old, and that’s not so “out there” considering how many pitchers play into their 40’s these days.
The Yankees rotation looks like this as of now: Sabathia-Kuroda-Nova-Pineda-Hughes-Garcia. When, and IF Pettitte makes it up to the major leagues, someone is going to have to bepushed out of the rotation. Obviously, we can’t predict the future (injuries, trades, etc.), so there might even be a spot available depending on how the season plays out. It’s going to take some time for him to get in playing shape, so he won’t be joining the team anytime soon.
Yankees Universe has a really great love and admiration for Andy. The outpouring from fans in response to this news clearly shows how happy we all are to have #46 back. The man came to spring training this year as an instructor, and he clearly got that itch to put the pinstripes on again. Welcome Back, Andy.

Chris “Mad Dog” Russo reunited for a segment on Mike Francesa’s show on Radio Row in Indianapolis. It’s almost as if the two never split up. I don’t know about you guys, but I wish these guys were still back on the air together. It just seems so right.
- Yankees hire former Cubs GM Jim Hendry to assist Cashman: “According to reports Tuesday night, the former Cubs general manager has been hired to be the special assistant to Yankees GM Brain Cashman.”
