Postseason Rotation, The Battle for the 4th spot- Hughes vs Nova

Alex Rodriguez, Speed Demon

Bryan Grosnick of "Beyond the Boxscore," one of our SBN allies, has a good article up today about an element of A-Rod's Hall of Fame-caliber game that is not often discussed: his speed. A-Rod is one of just four players to have a 40/40 season and one of eight to have a 300/300 career. His career stolen base rate is 81%, and 83% in pinstripes.

Yankees release Jack Cust, Colin Curtis, and Ray Kruml

Update: Melky Mesa is, in fact, going to AAA. That's it. As Collins pointed out, Curtis & Kruml were on the DL, so only one spot was actually open on the roster. Per Donnie Collins of the SWB Yankees Blog. Curtis (he of mid-at-bat home run fame) and Kruml weren't hitting much of anything at AAA, but Cust hit .240/.400/.475 there with 20 homers. Trenton Thunder beat writer Josh Norris suspects this cut means promotions are soon to come for some AA Yankee prospects. Bummer for that group of veterans in AAA, but promotions come before pennant races in the minor league system after all. My hunches on promotions are, fitting with the "two outfielders and a DH" swap, Jose Pirela (.322/.387/.504), Melky Mesa (.278/.346/.468), and Cody Johnson (.244/.336/.520 with a team-leading 16 HR).

Talking Yankees vs. Orioles with Camden Chat

Writers for our SBN Orioles site, Mark and Andrew, had me on their podcast last night to discuss the series between our two teams and the main stories surrounding the 2012 Yankees. If you'd like to only listen to the Yankee-centric part, it begins about 15 minutes into the recording and lasts about 45 minutes. Enjoy!
