Around the Empire

Lohud | Chad Jennings: Carlos Beltran is hitting extremely well. Carlos Beltran is the primary reason why the Yankees are still not out of it yet. Whether or not you think the Yankees should trade him or keep him, he is making a great case for either. It makes you wonder how his 2014 could have gone if not for the Trop!

New York Post | Joel Sherman: The 2014 season was not the best of seasons for the Yankees. Lately though, it is looking like the money they spent on Beltran, Jacoby Ellsbury, Masahiro Tanaka, and Brian McCann is finally paying off. Even with McCann struggling a bit lately, these four players doing well are why the Yankees are still not out of it yet. They just need to remain healthy.

Wall St. Journal | Jared Diamond: It is no secret that drafting has not been one of the Yankees strengths in the past. According to this, the Yankees have not had a single first rounder since 2010 reach the majors. That's not good. It needs to be better. Draft well tonight, Yankees. | Nick Suss: The Yankees continued on with Day Three of HOPE Week, the best week of the season. Yesterday, eight players were in Harlem to celebrate Harlem Grown, an organization that teaches children to grown fruits and vegetables at seven different urban farm locations in Harlem.
