Baseball Round Up

So the New York Yankees, after yielding in game 5, polished off the Philadelphia Phillies in 6 games. They were just a better team, playing better fundamentally, pitching better and hitting better. Congratulations to Hideki Matsui, the series MVP, who was locked in all series. Yanks will have a tough decision on whether to retain the 30+ year old hitter, who has knee problems that restrict his outfield play. Seattle should sign him and the two great Japanese hitters can play together. (Scary!)

Royals finally traded Mark Teahen to the Chicago White Sox for two infield guys. General consensus is that this is an OK deal for the Royals. I'll miss Teahen. He was a guy willing to do anything for the team, and seemed very unselfish. He hustled and worked hard. In other Royals news, the Royals declined contract options on CoCo Crisp, Miguel Olivo, and Yasuhiko Yabuta, so their careers as Royals are over.

Too bad we can say the same about Gullian and Farnsworth...

Hot Stove League next!
