FanGraphs | Craig Edwards: The Yankees have turned a remarkable trick in winning despite having a primary core of players over 30 years old. It's unorthodox, but it worked during the last few years of their recent playoff run from 2009-12, so it could certainly work again.

Sporting News | Kirstie Chiappelli: Want to buy Babe Ruth's old New York City apartment? It's on the market for about $1.6 million! How about a Kickstarter page for Pinstripe Alley HQ to be located there?

ESPN New York | Wally Matthews: Mark Teixeira's bone bruise is unfortunately far worse than initially thought. He will not play for at least the next two weeks, as the doctors put him on crutches to allow his leg to recover without added stress. The Yankees are hopeful to get him back before the end of the season, but they can't make any promises.

LoHud | Chad Jennings: Some notable young Yankees weren't called up on September 1st, like Nick Rumbelow, Aaron Judge, and Slade Heathcott, just to name a few. Jennings delves into the reasons why they're not with the Yankees now, though some could join later in the month.

Sporting News | Graham Womack: Why is the Hall of Fame having such a hard time inducting a very worthy candidate in Mike Mussina?

New York Times | Billy Witz: A glimpse into the lives of third base coaches around the AL East, like Joe Espada and Brian Butterfield.

Sports Illustrated | Jay Jaffe: "Team Entropy" is back for another September, so here's how the MLB playoff picture could descend into three-team (or more) playoff chaos by the end of the month before the postseason begins.
