Moshe with a little light-hearted humor in light of Jeter's injury.
Jeter was put on the DL. When contacted for comment, Cashman said "Its because he sucks. Jorge does too. Mo is ok. You can print that."
An interesting idea proposed by Old Hoss about league realignment
Dear "Bud" Selig, I know I've been mean. But please let re-alignment happen, and please re-name the leagues "Union" and "Rebel." Yrs, Hoss.
This is just straight up American. I really like Old Hoss.
Test scores are low? Bah! My grand-pappy did not need a History PhD to murder red-coats and help craft the cradle of freedom.
One of our very own writers, Dan Hanzus, with a sentence long opinion on the new movie "Green Lantern"

Oh, we know.
Dante19jr Dante Bichette JrJust so you all know, I'll be officially a Yankee very very soon. And I'll let everyone know exactly what day. Go yanks!
If Martin doesnt play again tomorrow, and Cervelli is still the starter...... #squeakydinosaurthateatspeople
Props to WWJD for this one. This was posted by Ledger Yankees, and it's hilarious.
Martin says his back is feeling better. In fact, he doesn’t feel an issue at all anymore. He said this with a giant heating pad on his back.

Sweeny Murti with a tidbit that I didn't even realize while sitting at the stadium.

If you guys can't tell, Moshe and Old Hoss are two of my favorites. He's another tweet that basically read my mind.
So apparently Joe said he started Jones and Jorge over Brett bc with NL games coming, those two will get few regular ABs. Okay.
Tripping Olney basically speaking the thoughts of IGYAR out loud.
THOSE GOOD OLD PHILLIES/MARINERS AND ANGELS/METS RIVALRIES. THAT'S WHAT INTERLEAGUE IS ALL ABOUT.

Another gem from foax Olney. Welcome back, Mauer.
HEARD THIS: JOE MAUER HAD TO RUN TO 2ND BASE TODAY. WILL SIT UNTIL AUGUST DUE TO FATIGUE.
We are too, Phil.
PhilHughes65 Phil HughesHeading back to NY for the SI yanks game. Bummed I missed out on wrigley
With actual dynamite? Or just with runs scored via various methods?
Have enough historical events occurred at Wrigley Field for the Yankees to deem it worthy of demolition?
Definitely a challenger for Tweet of the Week. This is indeed a huge step for all of mankind.
Announcer J. Buck just admitted he didn't know something. A big step. Soon he'll call every American and make amends.

It's funny because the Cubs were extremely hesitant to throw him anything other than off-speed junk.
JackCurryYES Jack Curry
Sabathia has .258 avg and 3 homers in his career. And guess what? He'll be up there hacking. In 101 plate appearances, CC has walked once
Huh? No way.
