Yesterday on Pinstriped Bible

Around the Internet

  • MLB.Com | Bryan Hoch: Yankees ownership still has a strong desire to improve the team even after the acquisition of Alfonso Soriano.
  • Newsday | David Lennon: Alex Rodriguez is expected to fight any sentence issued to him because of his involvement with Biogenesis.
  • New York Post | Joel Sherman: The Yankees don't have the best track record when it comes to midseason acquisitions for right-handed hitters as Craig Wilson, Xavier Nady, Austin Kearns, and Casey McGehee have shown.
  • ESPN New York | Mike Mazzeo: Joe Girardi has ordered Derek Jeter to not run all out when he doesn't absolutely have to.
  • NoMaas | SJK: Brian Cashman might not be to blame for some of the more questionable trades in 2013, but he is to blame for the lack of young impact players in the farm system.
  • Fox Sports | Ken Rosenthal: Even if Alex Rodriguez is suspended for Biogenesis, the PEDs discussion won't stop there because Anthony Bosch making a deal with MLB shows that other PED doctors have nothing to fear.

  • NoMaas | SJK: No one says much about David Ortiz having a meltdown in the dugout, but Joel Sherman of the New York Post will take the time to make fun of Alex Rodriguez.
