Used to be, to get a famous middle name, you needed to be a President or to shoot one. In rare instances did Yankee middle names become known. Here's my off-hand ranking of the greatest Yankee Middle Names.1. George Herman 2. Lawrence Peter 3. Mickey Charles4. Derek Sanderson5.

In one game today, did the Yankees equal the entire output from the farm system last year?

Dellin Betances and JR Murphy both won it.Did our minor league system last year accomplish such a thing?Let's see. There was Preston Claiborne and Austin Romine... maybe Vidal Nuno, if you consider a guy taken from the discard pile as a minor league product. For the first time in a long time, two completely homegrown Yankees combined to play a huge role in a win. Enjoy it, folks.

J.R. Murphy Promoted to Scranton

J.R. Murphy is headed to the Electric City. “Murphy’s outta here, he’s gone to Scranton,” Tony Franklin told me during his post-game media session. “A lot of people think he’s a pretty good player and that it’s time for him to move on.” The loss of J.R.
