Around the Yankees Galaxy 7/5/2010

The Post reports that Nick Johnson could be ready to rejoin the team by July.  They didn't say which July, though we're assuming this one.  Money quote from Brian Cashman:

We are hopeful at some time toward the end of a July we will have a player

That's right, a player.  Not a walking injury time bomb, or a 90-year old in a 31-year old's body, an actual baseball player. 

Actually, I would almost rather Johnson just stay away at this point.  Things have worked out well without him, and with A-Rod and Jorge benefiting from the semi-off days that the DH spot creates, it may become a logjam.

  • It's About the Money takes a good look at the general absurdity that ensues when a pitcher struggles.
