April standings, A-Rod homers, and ailing Ellsbury

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Harball Times | Alan Nathan: Two Alex Rodriguez homers leave the bat at nearly identical speeds, with nearly identical launch angles, but one homer travels more than 70 feet further than it's companion blast. No, it's not an SAT question, it's a physics problem. The answer is the Magnus effect.

LoHud Yankees Blog | Josh Thomson: Jacoby Ellsbury is fine. Definitely no need to worry that a guy who has averaged 119 games over the last three seasons, and who has only twice cleared 150 games played, is already starting to feel nicked up in late April.

NBC Sports | Bill Baer: A-Rod's next home run will tie Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time home run list. Oh, and set off another legal battle between the slugger and his employers.

NYPost | George King: Six errors, a baserunning gaff, and lousy starting pitching. The Subway Series finale probably won't make either team's "Classic" series. But the Yankees won the game, and the series. They've now won eight of their last ten, and share first place in the AL East with... the Tampa Bay Rays? Oh right, it's still April.
