Video: Yankees fans react to George Steinbrenner's passing

4 Comments

I said my rather detached, and mildly critical thing about Steinbrenner already, so here’s some equal time for a couple of Yankees fans.  No doubt, he means everything to Yankees fans who came of age over the last 40 years.

Random question: how did the Yankees get that banner printed so fast?  They really are a well-oiled machine . . .

The Mets have scratched Jacob deGrom from tonight’s start against the San Diego Padres because of the risk of rain in New York. Rafael Montero will start in deGrom’s place.

Manager Terry Collins said there is no physical issue with deGrom, but that because of the chance of rain, he didn’t want to risk a short outing. de Grom will start Friday’s game against the Pirates.

Red Sox to activate David Price for a Monday start

Earlier today we talked about how David Price was knocked around in a minor league rehab start. Apparently he felt good while being knocked around because he’s going to make a start for the Red Sox on Monday afternoon against the White Sox.

Healthy is all that truly matters at this point, what with Drew Pomeranz struggling and Steven Wright out for the year. The Sox need someone to eat some innings at the moment. If it takes him a bit to get super sharp, well, so be it.
