Morning Coffee! Yankees Might Be Overrated, But They Sure Are Popular

In the early balloting for the American League All-Star team six Yankees, A-Rod, Jeter, Robinson Cano, Mark Teixeira, Russell Martin and Curtis Granderson, are among the starters.

Yankees Sweep Athletics Thanks To Home Run By Swisher: New York's power was too much for Oakland's pitching for the third straight game.

Nightmare Seventh Inning Dooms Bumbling Mets, Fall To Pirates 9-3: The Mets had a 2-0 lead through six innings, but then fell apart. Bad defense, bad pitching and in the end a bad loss.
