The Yankees topped the Mets last night 4-2 behind a solid showing from Phil Hughes. Here's more on the Bombers and the AL East..
- Yankees GM Brian Cashman says that he's not looking for an outfielder in the wake of the latest news on Brett Gardner, but Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger thinks that he'll have to consider making a deal. Gardner's latest setback could leave him sidelined until after the All-Star break.
- Had things gone differently, Gio Gonzalez might have been on the hill for the Red Sox this weekend rather than the Nationals, writes Alex Speier of WEEI.com. The Sox pursued Gonzalez aggressively when the Athletics shopped him last offseason, but balked at the huge prospect haul they would have had to give up.
- In addition to a consistent Daisuke Matsuzaka, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe opines that the Red Sox need to land a No. 1 starter if this season is going to matter.
