Mike Carp left yesterday’s 6-3 loss to the Orioles with a tight right hamstring. “Felt it a little bit and then I hit the line-drive and I had a little concern right there,” Carp said. “Got the rest of tonight off, tomorrow, almost two full days until we have to p...

I doubt anyone, even the most diehard Yankee fan, would dispute he's one of the great hitters to play the game.
