New York Yankees News: Robertson's Oblique & Old Guys

Up to 3143 now.

There was speculation that Rafael Soriano had been named the closer after he appeared in last night's save situation rather than David Robertson. It turns out D-Rob was suffering from a sore oblique muscle. He'll go for tests today to determine the severity.

- Despite Mark Teixeira's big game last night, he hasn't quite lived up the high expectations he had when he signed a huge, eight-year deal before the 2009 season. (Come back at 8 a.m. for more on this.)

- Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger did some good work on the offense and its struggles.

- A couple of ex-All Stars, Andruw Jones and Raul Ibanez, are paying big dividends off the bench.

- Learn more about the next five players Derek Jeter will surpass on the all-time hits list.

- SBN NY looked at the top Yankees prospects of the week. Did you know 2B Angelo Gumbs of the Charleston RiverDogs swiped 11 bases? He has 19 on the season and only one caught stealing.

- Several fans have filed a lawsuit against MLB regarding (in essence) the territorial rights that give rise to the infamous blackout rules we all hate. Good luck, it's going to be an uphill battle.
