Morning Coffee! Everybody Wins Edition

It's going to be another hot one in the New York area, so it might be a good day to find a nice, cool place and watch some baseball. But first, here's what happened yesterday:

↵

Yankees Pound A's, 17-7: It was a good news/bad news game for the New York Yankees last night. The good news: The offense exploded for 17 runs, with a Mark Teixeira grand slam and a Nick Swisher three-run bomb being the highlights, and Hector Noesi threw three and 2/3 scoreless innings. The bad news: Phil Hughes got rocked, giving up seven runs in four and 1/3 innings.

Mets Beat Marlins, 7-6: The return of David Wright coud not have gone better for the New York Mets. The third baseman drove in two runs, hit two doubles and scored two runs in the win over Florida. Wright had a lot of help, though, as every Met position player had a hit in the game. On the mound, Mike Pelfrey was mediocre, but Bobby Parnell picked up the win and Jason Isringhausen recorded an un-K-Rod-like save with a one-two-three ninth.

Where Is Carlos Going? We're only about a week away from the trade deadline, and the latest Carlos Beltran rumors have him going to the San Francisco Giants for a package headed by center-field prospect Gary Brown.

Lockout Mumbo Jumbo: The NFL lockout is in a holding pattern as the players mull over the owners' proposal. The owners are ready to go, but the players don't want to rush into anything. Is there a line in Vegas on what will happen first -- Carlos Beltran being traded or the lockout ending?
