  • What is life like for Jeff Weaver after giving up the game-winning home run on Wednesday night? Dave Caldwell of the New York Times spent some time with him yesterday.

  • Yankee fans: do you feel like vilifying Weaver for what he did? How about looking instead to his manager, Joe Torre, for not using their best reliever in a close game?'s Rob Neyer suggests this was patently ludicrous.

  • As you can imagine, I read a lot of headlines every day and this article on the benching of Alfonso Soriano has one of the best I've seen recently: "Slump with ash puts Soriano on pines." Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports on the second baseman's struggles.
