While the Johnny Damon watch continues there are a few other stories worth noting about our New York Yankees. So, let's take a look.
- How good was Derek Jeter's 2009 season? Well, let's put it this way. We know that those who lean heavily on Sabermetrics love to bash Jeter, but the statistically-savvy folks at FanGraphs loved Jeter's '09 campaign.
- Replacement Level Yankees Weblog wonders if the Yankees should consider prized prospect Jesus Montero for left field. Umm, no they should not.

- Yankee Scrolls takes a look at the Yankee bench as it is currently constructed, and comes away holding its collective nose.
- Zell's Pinstripe Blog is beating the drum for the retirement of Joe Torre's No. 6 by the Yankees. I loved Torre and still do, but my first reaction to that is no.
- TheYankeeU wonders if Jamie Hoffman was the right choice for the Yankees in the Rule 5 draft.
- The SWB Yankees Blog is advocating that the Yankees bring back reliever Stephen Jackson, who was just DFAed by Pittsburgh.
