Newsday | Anthony Rieber: The Yankees are not winning right now, but Alex Rodriguez helped make one young fan's trip to Fenway Park a night he'll never forget. David Ortiz also helped make another kid's night a special one as well. A touching baseball story if there ever was one.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: While Yankee Stadium III offers such culinary wonders as the Barnyard Wedding, it is possible that the ever expansive use of the shift has turned the short right porch from a strength into a weakness. Brian Cashman admits that it is hurting them. The month of April would probably prove him right.

The New York Times | Benjamin Hoffman: David Price, who is signed with the Red Sox for the foreseeable future, is all too familiar with the New York Yankees. Price already has the second-highest number of starts against the Yankees among active players. After his next start, he will tie James Shields for number one. Still seventeen more games to go against this team.

New York Post | Ken Davidoff: It's getting late early out there. This April has been one of the worst beginnings to a season in the past 25 years. That's not to say that they cannot turn this year around, but it would behoove them to start doing so soon.
