These early travails are a test of character as well as talent. He seems to be doing well on both counts. As for his anemic hitting, he seems to be taking the long view and not panicking. If ther more »

New Yankee Stadium differs from old. The right field fence is about 6 feet shorter. It's a straight line rather than a curve. And there is a real draft that wafts over from the Harlem River and gives more »
