Monday Mendozas


Today's links were ingested and then regurgitated while pining for the new Green Day record ...
• Here's one of the coolest things you'll see this year.

• So, it really was the foot all along. One does wonder why the Yankees would allow a guy with a bad foot to start three games and give up 23 runs in six innings. But hey, whatever. I'm sure they'll win 100 anyway, right?

• I'm sure we've run through some (or most) of them before, but it's hard to tire of great Rickey Henderson stories.

• I wasn't a big fan of the Phillies signing Raul Ibanez. Phillies fan Eric Seidman really wasn't a big fan of the Phillies signing Raul Ibanez. Raul Ibanez has been fantastic since signing with the Phillies. Eric Seidman deals with it.

• Jerry Manuel was fined for delaying a game last week. Good. I don't even care much whether he meant to delay the game. Sometimes you have to draw a line in the sand, just on general principle.

Yuniesky Betancourt Walk Watch, Game 25: 91 plate appearances (and counting!).

• Tangotiger checks some of my math, and finds my math badly wanting.

• Keith Olbermann -- who apparently purchases Yankee tickets with his own money -- is a bit less than impressed with his favorite team's recent economic "adjustment."

• The Cubs' wonderful practice of selling Harry Caray's legacy to the highest bidder bites them on the butt again.
