Good afternoon everyone. Don’t forget tonight is an ESPN game, which means the Yankees and Orioles are the last two teams to begin their All-Star break vacation. Here are a few light notes that I wanted to get out of the way before tonight’s series finale.

Brian McCann had X-Rays on his right foot yesterday after a foul ball hit his toe. The X-Rays came back negative and he believes he can play tonight.

David Robertson recorded his 23rd save in yesterday’s game. With that save, Robertson had converted 11 straight save opportunities since his last blown save on June 17.

– In the last 10 Yankees wins, the Yankees had scored five or more runs. Yesterday’s win snapped that streak when the Yankees only scored three runs.

    Because every time I watched Yankees game McCann has a knack for beating the defensive shift, I feel like he is sitting around 265-275 average by now. However, he is still under 240. Unbelievable.

    About Matt Tracy, do you guys think he will be a darkhorse replacement for Whitley's spot in the rotation if Huff and Francis are no go or Yankees fail to bring in a veteran for 2nd half showdown?

    Funny thing, Yankees defense is bad and yet Yankees revamp the rotation with groundball starters in McCarthy, Greene and Tracy?.
