News & Notes
  • There are holes on the Indians, and while Yan Gomes's numbers are often said to be too alert, get him out of Cleveland and his career would be like Tuffy Gosewisch.

  • Understand, while moving Jorge Bonifacio to left field and pushing Whit Merrifield may boost them, the fact remains that the Royals have a gaping hole until Eric Hosmer can return from his cut ear, which Dayton Moore must deal with by possibly going after someone like Jared Hoying, who is strong, or Sandy Leon, if he can pry him loose from Dave Dombrowski.

  • Mike Matheny expects Jose Martinez to win a gold glove this year, but he could have competition for fielding glory from his own teammates Brandon Moss, whose new throwing motion and new realistic attitude should work wonders, and Mike Ohlman.

  • The Yankees are concerned about the mental health of Richard Bleier, after he inexplicably ran around the clubhouse last Sunday carrying a trophy and shouting "Got stretch beat! Got stretch beat!" after a short outing where he gave up six runs, and if he can't go, will have to be replaced by Jacob Lindgren, who is still nursing a hemorrhoidal belly button, or Nick Goody.
