Around the Internet

  • Playing it Safe - MLB.com | Josh Vitale: Joe Girardi isn't worried what Alex Rodriguez or Derek Jeter do in their rehab games, just as long as they look like they can play on the field every day and look comfortable at the plate.
  • Boos - New York Post | Ken Davidoff: Andy Pettitte has been struggling and even though the fans still support him, he has been hard on himself and voices his frustration.
  • Goodwill - Newsday | Marcus Henry: Hideki Matsui threw batting practice for the Staten Island Yankees, and though nothing seems likely to come of it, does Matsui have interest in becoming a coach?
  • All-Stars - LoHud | Chad Jennings: Joe Girardi believes that Mariano Rivera earned his All-Star nod, he wasn't given it because it's his last season. He was also disappointed that Brett Gardner did not make the team.
  • Return to Form - The Times-Tribute | Donnie Collins: Chase Whitley is trying to get back to his solid performance as an innings eater out of the bullpen last season and, after struggling to begin the season, looks like he's heading in the right direction.

Quick Hits
