Dodgers fans took over Yankee Stadium last night

4 Comments

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.

Mets claim Sam Coonrod off waivers from Phillies

NEW YORK — The active New York Mets added another newcomer to their bullpen mix when they claimed reliever Sam Coonrod off waivers from the NL East rival Philadelphia Phillies.

Coonrod had a 7.82 ERA in 12 appearances covering 12 2/3 innings last year for the National League champions. The right-hander is 7-5 with a 5.27 ERA and five saves in 105 games over four major league seasons with San Francisco and Philadelphia. He has struck out 95 and walked 44 in 97 1/3 innings.

The 30-year-old Coonrod was designated for assignment by the Phillies last week when they signed free agent infielder Josh Harrison.

To make room on the 40-man roster, outfielder Khalil Lee was designated for assignment by the Mets.
