Must-click link: some awesome old pics of Yankee Stadium

Apologies to whoever pointed out this link on Twitter this morning, but I can’t find your tweet to give you credit (UPDATE: It was Alex Belth). The post itself is from last year, but it doesn’t matter because I’m a sucker for this stuff.

Old pics of old Yankee Stadium, many in color.  My favorite is either the last out in the last game before the 1974-75 renovation because (a) old; and (b) retro Tigers road uniforms.  My second favorite is the aerial shot in which you can see both Yankee Stadium and the Polo Grounds in the same shot.

Get lost in ’em, folks.

Yankees sign Brad Miller to minor league contract

The Yankees announced on Monday that the club signed infielder Brad Miller to a minor league contract.

Miller, 29, was designated for assignment by the Indians last week. He wasn’t happy about that decision, saying, “Obviously, [the Indians] don’t want the best guys up here.”

Miller hit .250/.325/.417 with a homer and four RBI in 40 plate appearances with the Indians. The Indians have one of the worst offenses in the league and Miller was one of only a handful of players even hitting at a passable level, which did make his DFA all the more surprising.

The Yankees, decimated by injuries, need depth and Miller will provide that at the very least.
