Around the Empire
New York Times | Billy Witz: Things are not looking good for Mark Teixeira's final season in pinstripes. After being removed from Friday's game, an MRI revealed that Teixeira has torn knee cartilage. He will head to the DL and meet with Dr. Ahmad on Monday to see what the next step is. If the next step is indeed surgery, that will most likely end his season.
Portland Tribune | Howie Stalwick: Former Yankees' third baseman Scott Brosius is currently enjoying his first year as a minor league hitting coach for the Tacoma Rainiers, the AAA affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. The players there love having him around as well. It's possible that Brosius could one day be a professional major league hitting coach.
New York Post | Dan Martin: Speaking of the minor leagues, Nick Swisher is still on the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders awaiting his opportunity. He has not given up on his goal to rejoin the Yankees one day. While Chris Parmelee and Rob Refsnyder are looking like the current options at first base, Swish may get his chance one day if the injuries keep piling up. He's going to need to work on his hitting a bit more though.
Newsday | Erik Boland: Carlos Beltran, CC Sabathia, and Alex Rodriguez each paid tribute to the late Muhammad Ali yesterday. They all had the pleasure to meet Ali at the 2004 All Star Game in Houston.
- If Teixeira's season is done, what should the Yankees do at first base?

Song Of The Day
Gerudo Valley by Zelda 25th Anniversary Orchestra
It's Swords and Sorcery Week on Pinstripe Alley. Normally I'd start a new week, but I decided to extend the previous theme by one more day, just to get a Legend of Zelda tracks in. Shah will have a new theme tomorrow. As always, please link us your song of the day.
