Morning Bits

Good morning everyone!

The Yankees fell to the Royals last night by a score of 5-1.

The Yankee offense was again MIA with the only run provided by a solo shot off the bat of Lyle Overbay.

Phil Hughes allowed two runs over four innings before being removed after a rain delay to take the loss for the Yankees.

Tonight at 7:05 PM ET in a game that will be broadcast by YES, C.C. Sabathia(9-6, 4.05 ERA) will face James Shields(3-6, 3.23 ERA).

Now on to today’s news links:

Peter Botte of the New York Daily News reports that Derek Jeter is pleading with Yankee GM Brian Cashman to bring him back to the Bronx now.

Peter Kerasotis of ESPNNewYork.com writes about the “other side” of A-Rod’s rehab assignment.

Kevin Kernan of the New York Post thinks that without going out and adding some offensive help that the Yankees will run out of luck this season.

Have a great day everyone!
