Bullpen and defense fail Yankees late, Red Sox seize division title in 11-6 win

After taking the first two games of their series against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees sought to complete the sweep on Thursday and prevent the Red Sox from celebrating a division title at Yankee Stadium. As is usually the case between these two teams, Thursday’s game was a back and forth contest but the Red Sox ultimately prevailed 11-6 and will be leaving New York as the AL East champs.


The latest on the surprising Yankees managerial candidate: Carlos Beltran

On Wednesday Carlos Beltran was the latest candidate to interview for the managerial opening.  Yes the same Beltran who won his first World Series ring and retired. This probably doesn't come as much of a surprise since Beltran was vocal about his interest in managing someday. Apparently that day is now.

Here are a couple Carlos Beltran quotes per MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:








Despite Beltran’s lack of coaching/managerial experience, he's always been mentioned as a very intelligent baseball mind who always worked well mentoring the younger players, and he was always well respected by his teammates and opponents. He had a very successful playing career, and if paired with a veteran former manager as a bench coach, i.e. Dusty Baker, he could do well with the Yankees.  This team is built to win for the next 5-10 years. It will be interesting to see if the Yankees will bring any more candidates in for interviews.

Brian Cashman said Beltran would be the last candidate they would interview and that his personal recommendation has been submitted.
