Morning Bits: Grading Cashman, Jeter passes Mantle, Melky wins MVP

Who stayed up to watch the whole game last night?  Not me.  The life just seemed to be sucked out of that game after the first inning.  Good for Melky to win the MVP.  Now I’m sure the “Yankees should have always kept him” will start-up again.  Melky is not even the same person then to now.  Just google pictures of him in a Yankee uniform and now a Giants uniform you can see he is in much better shape now.

Enjoy another baseball less day today.

Now onto the links…..

Andrew Marchand of ESPN NY is grading Brian Cashman after the first half of the season.  Read the article and see if you agree with his grade.

Marchand writes another article this one about how Jeter passed Mantle last night with most career hits as a Yankee for the All-Star Game.

  1. I actually stayed up and watched the whole game…even when all the Yankees left. Poor Melky didn’t understand the interview after the game. They couldn’t hire a Spanish speaking reporter?

    • Yeah…..they asked him who were the ladies standing next to him…..and he answered ” I want to thank the fans” . It was his mother and grandmother 🙂

      Strange thing …. In all the years with the Yankees ….I don’t remember ever seeing him speak.
