For today’s By The Numbers, I thought I would take a look at the eight sluggers in history who have, thus far, clubbed 600 or more home runs.
CC Sabathia stopped his two-start losing streak with nine strikeouts over seven innings, and the New York Yankees hit three home runs to support him in an 8-4 victory over the depleted Minnesota Twins on Thursday night.
Alex Rodriguez singled and played six innings in the field Tuesday night, as the Yankees third baseman continues his minor-league rehabilitation following right knee surgery in July.
It may be premature to call him Ivan “Super” Nova, but the youngster showed grit, heart and lots of guts in the Yankees’ 4-3 Monday night win over the Minnesota Twins.
Derek Jeter, Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth head a list of 142 players who have become free agents following the World Series.
Last year, the New York Yankees christened their billion-dollar ballpark with a World Series title. This time, the Minnesota Twins are hoping their new downtown home can help supply the same October charm.
