    When Alex Rodriguez went down with a broken bone in his hand Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, among the first potential replacements that sprung to mind was former Yankeesí utility man Eduardo Nunez. The former big leaguer would have been a natural fit as someone who had been with the team before as a utility infielder and filled in when Derek Jeter was on the disabled list in 2011, but he was also just coming off of the disabled list, and had previously been sent back down to the minor leagues due to his defensive shortcomings. Of course, the Yankees called up Ramiro Pena yesterday, but that hasnít stopped discussions of Nunez, who returned to action with Triple-A Empire State at shortstop, not third base.

    Lindall Dale McDaniel pitched for twenty-two years in the major leagues from 1955 to 1975. His career spanned the golden era of the Fifties, the pitching era of the Sixties and into the disco days of the Seventies. He had a rubber arm and made 987 appearances in the majors spanning 2139+ innings for five different teams. He is fifteenth on the all time list in appearances. One of the most memorable things about Lindy was that at the age of 37 and 38, he made eight starts mixed in with his 78 relief appearances and threw complete games in three of them! But the most memorable thing about him, of course, was that he was a Yankee.
