If you’re one of those people who likes to spend their lunchtime at work perusing articles on the internet, this is the place to be!
First up, Matt Imbrogno of The Yankee Analysts writes about the possibility of making Alex Rodriguez the full-time DH.
Marc Carig of the Star Ledger talks about Ichiro preparing for his first home game as a Yankee. Talk about being thrown into the fire! There’s nothing like a Yankees-Red Sox series to introduce yourself to the home fans. I predicted an Ichiro home run to the short porch. We’ll see what happens.
In case you missed it yesterday, Mike Axisa of River Ave Blues explored the Yankees’s options at third base during A-Rod’s absence.
Over at Pinstripe Alley, Tanya Bondurant emphatically states that Hiroki Kuroda is no National League Pitcher – and she has the stats to back it up.
Now for one of my favorite things to read everyday. It’s a general baseball post by The Common Man of The Platoon Advantage. It’s his Morning Cram Session and in it, he talks about what happened the previous day around the league. He’s very funny and I recommend you set aside a few minutes every morning to read it.
Adam Darowski who contributes to SB Nation’s Beyond the Boxscore and to Baseball: Past and Present – a site I occasionally contribute to as well – has a new home over at High Heat Stats. Today he talks about the difference between WAA and WAR.
And finally, in case you hadn’t heard, the Boston Red Sox are finally coming to town this weekend to take on the Yanks. It’s July 27 and this is the first time the teams are meeting in Yankee Stadium. Weird, right? Anyway, the aforementioned Mike Axisa of RAB has your series preview. Big spoiler: No David Ortiz. He’s still injured.
