Second base options, AFL All-Stars, Jaron Long praise, the Yogi Berra Museum's items restored, and generous Godzilla

Dimitrios Kambouris

LoHud | Chad Jennings: An early look at the the Yankees' options at second base next year: Martin Prado? Rob Refsnyder? Jose Pirela? Dr. X?

Rolling Thunder | Matt Kardos: Hard-hitting top prospect Aaron Judge was selected to the Arizona Fall League All-Star Game on November 1st, but Greg Bird was not selected for some reason even though he's leading the league in homers. Apparently organizations can only have one representative each, and the scouts/farm directors chose Judge. Oh well.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Departing VP Mark Newman had some high praise for Jaron Long, who is no longer "just the coach's son." Here's hoping Jaron takes another step forward in 2015. | Bryan Hoch: Hoch answers Yankees questions about re-signing David Robertson, the effect of Kevin Long's departure on the offense, Brandon McCarthy, the six-man rotation, and Ichiro Suzuki

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews: The Yankees, Mets, and Major League Baseball are graciously donating replicas of the items recently stolen from the Yogi Berra Museum. It still pisses me off that there are people in the world who would steal from Yogi, but I'm happy baseball's teaming up to support the Yankees legend.

Eater | Daniela Galarza: Reason number 5,555 why Hideki Matsui is awesome--he left a very generous $700 tip (40% of the bill) for the staff at Tavern on the Green over the weekend. Go go Godzilla.
