Morning Bits 6/17/11

Good morning everyone.  Don’t forget today is a day game in Chicago against the Cubs.  Cubs are a poor teams this year with a lot of fielding errors so hopefully the yankees take this series.

and here are your morning links.

FYI Short Season Staten Island Yankees start today.  It’s a cheap way to see some of the future Yankees/Trade bait. Tickets start around 15 bucks. 

* Martin was back in the lineup yesterday and seems all his issues are gone for now.

* Jones & Texiera deny that they were stealing signs in the Texas series.  To me though good for the Yankees if they picked up on their signs It’s the catchers fault if he can’t put down multiple signs downs to confuse the running at second.

* Torre & Bernie Williams are returning to Yankee Stadium for their first Old Timer’s Day.
