How to fix the Yankees' biggest problem

The Yankees don't have that many question marks for a probable wild-card team, except at first base. Though they still haven't given up on Greg Bird as a long-term option, October isn't about long-term options.

The Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Twins with an 11-3 victory on Wednesday, bringing their record to 78-31 (.716) vs. Minnesota since the start of the 2002 season.

The frightful Yankee Stadium episode Wed. in which a little girl was injured by a foul ball calls to mind the ongoing concerns of Mandy Coolbaugh, whose husband Mike -- a minor league first-base coach -- was killed 7/22/07 on a liner that struck him in the neck. She says when she and their two toddler sons attended Mike's games, he insisted that they stay in an area with protective netting and that she advocates extending netting at ballparks.

After walking Giancarlo Stanton four times on Tuesday, the Mets pitched to him today and the big guy swatted his 56th home run. With 10 games remaining, can Stanton get to 60? Based on his season rate of home runs, he'd hit 3.75 in the Marlins' remaining 10 games. Meanwhile, Aaron Judge slammed his 45th home run as he closes in on Mark McGwire's rookie record of 49 set in 1987. That's eight HR, 19 RBI and 20 runs in September for Judge as he re-ignites his MVP case.
