Yankees don’t think Martin needs a DL stint

For most of his short Yankee career, Chris Stewart has barely been noticable. He barely played and really only caught for CC Sabathia.

Frankie Cervelli should be promoted for the playoffs… now!

Francisco Cervelli wins the game with a walkoff single 5-4

Francisco Cervelli did not respond well to being demoted. He was not shy about being confused and distraught over the whole debacle.
