Chris Woodward, the current 3rd base coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, was invited by Brian Cashman to interview for the coveted position of Yankees’ manager. Woodward is the 5th person to interview for said coveted position. If you want more info on Woodward, click the link. If you don’t want more info on Woodward, just assume that what he’s doing in the photo is what he’s bringing to the table. That’s my plan.

CBS New York | Sweeny Murti: The last person to interview for the managerial position was Yankee legend Aaron Boone. In this article, Sweeny Murti goes over the reasons why Aaron Boone might make a great manager. Yes, him hitting that heroic dinger to send the Red Sox back home in 2003 is clearly #1. The other reasons include just how much baseball is in the Boone blood. Give this a read, please.

Newsday | Bobby Wagner: The Yankees made a trade yesterday. Well, Jerry Dipoto of the Seattle Mariners made the trade, as trading people is the only way to nourish his soul. Yankees’ minor league reliever Nick Rumbelow is heading to the Mariners in exchange for minor league relievers JP Sears and Juan Then. I, for one, love the punnability of their names. Both teams appears to be clearing room for the Rule-5 Draft coming on Monday. | Jamal Collier: AL Rookie of the Year winner Aaron Judge has won another rookie award. On Friday, Judge was awarded with the Esurance MLB Award. Judge beat out both Cody Bellinger and Andrew Benintendi for the award. I hope he’s buying shelves to put all these accolades on.
