There’s some crazy fog going on in Chicago this evening. While the Reds and Cubs are playing through it on the North Side — in fact, Brandon Phillips has hit a grand slam — the Blue Jays and White Sox went into a fog delay in the bottom of the third inning.
And as this picture from the Associated Press demonstrates, it’s easy to see why play was halted at U.S. Cellular Field:
MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch reports that ESPN broadcaster Aaron Boone interviewed for the Yankees’ manager job today. No word as to whether he hit a big home run.
Boone, an ESPN analyst, obviously has some history with the Yankees, but he has no coaching experience at any level. Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote earlier this week of Boone that the Yankees “are intrigued if his charisma and passion can compensate for inexperience.” I’d say the answer to that question, whenever asked and in whatever context, is always “no,” but I suppose there’s a first time for everything.
So far the Yankees have interviewed Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge and Hensley Meulens. Yesterday Brian Cashman said there was no rush to fill the job, and that the Winter Meetings are not a deadline for the team in doing so.
