Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Beyond the Boxscore | Scott Lindholm: Dellin Betances is ridiculously good at relief pitching, posting more strikeouts than total baserunners allowed. Seems decent.

FanGraphs | Matthew Kory: Looking back at Alex Rodriguez's three-homer game on Saturday to suggest what kind of hitter he is now. It's pretty darn special.

Sports Illustrated | Tom Verducci: Speaking of "pretty darn special," Verducci wrote an enjoyable article about A-Rod's amazing comeback season.

NY Daily News | Anthony McCarron: During his Hall of Fame induction speech, Craig Biggio credited a great deal of his early baseball knowledge to Yogi Berra, who was coaching for the Astros at the time. One can only imagine the plethora of players influenced by Yogi during his countless years in the game.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: After last night's game, the Yankees discussed Diego Moreno's tremendous no-hit relief appearance. Even if he does get sent down to recall a fresh arm, he certainly made an impression on skipper Joe Girardi and his team. | Paul Casella: Ten fun facts from Tuesday's night's 21-5 blowout victory over the Rangers. What a strange and awesome night.
