Off-Day Update: Carlos Beltran AL Player of Week; Clubhouse Notes


Carlos Beltran was named American League Player of The Week, the 10th time he has won a POTW honor… as other topics of discussion around the team focused on bench strength, and the need for a solid utility man for the infield. Some in the media have suggested it’s time for the Yankees to open the checkbook and sign former Red Sox Stephen Drew, who is still team-less at this writing. While Ken Davidoff (New York Post) reports: “Hal: Why Yankees still don’t need to sign Stephen Drew” …
LoHud’s Chad Jennings has a nice writeup on recent doings in the Yank’s minor league system, “Early minor league notes: Sizemore off to a strong start“…

1932 World Series Babe Ruth home run.
The Iron Horse congrats Babe after the called shot.

The Yanks have met tomorrow’s opponent The Chicago Cubs in modern inter-league action 9 times, with series in 2003, 2005 and 2011. The Yanks have a 6-3 record. Their previous match-up was in the 1932 World Series, where the Bronx Bombers swept the Cubbies, 4-0, out-scoring them 37-19, and featuring Babe Ruth‘s legendary ‘called shot’ home run.
