Early Takeaways from the Yankees' September Call-Ups

We are 10 days into the month of September, a time when major league teams are littered with minor league prospects; players decent enough to warrant a call-up when the 25-man rosters expand to 40. Hopelessly fighting for the playoffs, the New York Yankees have some call-ups of their own as they sit 5.5 games out of the second wild card. With their chances dwindling by the day and every game a must-win, the Yanks have relied very little on the players they brought up such as Chris Young, Just a few days into the month, these call-ups have had only a handful of opportunities to showcase their abilities, making it hard to judge their games fairly.

Game 140, Mariners at Rangers

Only Detroit's seven-run 11th inning against Cleveland marred a dominant night by two Seattle sports teams, with the M's drubbing a Texas team featuring two players making their MLB debuts, and Jon Edwards, who was apparently a failed OF in the Cardinals organization as recently as 2010. They are shattering the record for most players used in a season, and despite a universally-praised system, nothing's been able to staunch the bleeding.

Klapisch: Wally Backman deserves major league role with Mets

You couldn't help but wonder how Sandy Alderson really felt about Wally Backman winning the Pacific Coast League's Manager of the Year award, considering the GM has shown no intention of giving Backman a chance in New York. It's time to reconsider this de facto blackball, and see Backman as an asset who can help the Mets ascend toward respectability.
