Dodgers fans took over Yankee Stadium last night

Yankees fans in the right field bleachers usually do a “roll call” of the Yankees’ lineup. They chant the Yankees players names, the player gives a hat tip or a wave or something and then they move on.

Last night in the Bronx, however, it was the visiting club’s fans who performed a roll call. One louder than the one performed by the home team. And they unfurled that big Dodgers flag seen above as well:

 

The Dodgers have not played in Yankee Stadium very much. Must either be a tour group or the children and grandchildren of old Brooklyn people who inherited the Dodgers fandom via osmosis or something.

They went home — or to their hotels — happy. Dodgers beat the Yankees handily.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
