Apologies for some technical difficulties

APOLOGIES FOR SOME TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES

by Mike D.

Hello all. We would have posted a game thread, but due to some untimely site difficulties, we weren’t able to access our posting features.

It’s a 1-1 game in what looks like it will be a very late night, with the speed at which Beckett is pitching.

Morning Bits: A-Rod Poker/Rehab, Swisher

Good morning all.  A lose yesterday bring the Yankees back to a tie for first with the Red Sox.   Tonight it’s a night game on ESPN.   Enjoy the day.

and here are your links…

* MLB won’t ban A-Rod over poker.   Sounds like good news to me hopefully this story is put to bed now.

* A-Rod’s rehab is working hard and could be in rehab games by Friday.

* Nick Swisher is the Yankees unsung hero.

Game Review from MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:

BOSTON — The Yankees enjoyed but a few precious hours to admire sole possession of the top spot in the American League East, and now they must share custody with their rivals from Boston for at least another evening.

CC Sabathia continued to have problems with the Red Sox, hammered for a five-run fourth inning and seven runs in all, as the Yankees gave back a share of first place in Saturday’s 10-4 decision at Fenway Park.

Jacoby Ellsbury belted a three-run homer off Sabathia and drove in a career-high six runs to pace the lineup for Boston, which has defeated the Yankees nine times in 11 meetings this season.
