Morning Bits: Montero, Brackman, Granderson

Yankees win.  How about the unusual suspects all hitting home runs in Posada, Cervelli and Gardner. A very later start and a late ending with an afternoon game scheduled for today. Look for a lot of the regulars to probably get the day off today.

Yankees Magic number to clinch the playoffs is now 20.

and here are your morning links.

* If many of you forgot Jesus Montero was nearly traded a couple of times.

* Brackman returns from early struggles and rejoins the Yankees.

* Granderson named AL player of the month for August.
