When Mr. Applegate made a deal with the lowly Washington team in Damn Yankees, it was clear he had already a deal in place with the New York Yankees. He was double-dealing.

Once again we have read that another Yankee star will be on the No Network, not playing for the opening of the season on the YES Network.
Mark Teixiera has now gone down with a limp wrist for ten weeks, following in the on deck circle after Curtis Granderson.
