Morning Bits 6/7/11

Good Morning all.  Today’s the day Red Sox vs Yankees.  I’m sure all games will be three hours plus. So sit back and enjoy tonight’s game.

Here are your morning links.

* Yankees might have signed there replacement for A-Rod in last night Draft.  Many Yankee fans are not happy with the pick as Dante was projected as a late second round early third round pick.  Who knows though he is a young kid and if he develops into his father who was a four time All-Star i’m sure the Yankees will sign up for that.

 

* For those who were hoping for a comeback Andy Pettitte mentioned that he won’t be coming back from retirement.

* The push for 3,000 hits comes home to Yankee Stadium.
