LoHud Yankees Blog | Mike Zacchio: Having lost five straight and nine out of ten, the Yankees are officially in their worst slump in recent memory. Brett Gardner says, "It seems about as bad as it can get."

New York Times | Billy Witz: There are two ways to beat the shift--going over it, or going around it--and Mark Teixeira and Mike Moustakas have taken opposite approaches to solving their shared problem.

NY Daily News | Mark Feinstein: Alex Rodriguez Juice Box Night cancelled by the Tampa Bay Rays Single-A affiliate, the Charlotte Stone Crabs. Oh come on, that's pretty funny. Do we have to be that politically correct?

Cincinnati Enquirer | John Fay: Top pitching trade target Johnny Cueto (assuming the Phillies never move Cole Hamels) will miss his next start. All you Yankees fans writing Chase Whitley and Carlos Beltran for Cueto FanPosts might want to pick a new trade target.
