Morning Bits: 9-11, SI-Yankees, Romine

Good morning all. Yet another loss last night, making it 4 losses in a row. Boston also lost, so the 2.5 game lead is still intact.

The Magic Number is now at 16.

More importantly, today is the 10 year- anniversary of 9-11. Today we remember all those who lost their lives in that tragic attack on our country.

Here are your morning links:

— Don Amore of the Hartford Courant discusses why baseball was able to help New York City heal.

— “Alfonso Soriano remembers the homer he thought won the World Series city needed after 9/11” by Anthony McCarron of the Daily News.

— To clarify the title of last night’s recap, the Staten Island Yankees did not win the playoffs. They won the first series against the Brooklyn Cyclones and will be playing in the Championship Series against Auburn, starting today.

— Austin Romine may join the team today, due to Frankie Cervelli’s concussion symptoms.

The Yanks play today at 3:35pm, the final game of the 3 game set in Anaheim.
