  • HitTracker can be a helpful tool in discovering average home-run distance, but it’s not all-telling, and there are some major flaws in the technology. For instance, what happens when a player’s fly dies on the warning track, while another eeps over the fence for a tater? Derek Carty tries to make sense of when to use HitTracker and its uses in player evaluation.
  • The Yankees’ shortstop situation is interesting: Derek Jeter is rehabbing a bum calf muscle in Florida, and while replacement Eduardo Nunez hasn’t embarrassed himself at the dish, his play in the field almost has Yankees fans praying for the day the Cap’n and his rangeless glove return to the lineup. There are some options for general manager Brian Cashman to consider on the trade market, including the crosstown rival Mets’ Jose Reyes. Though Cashman denies interest in Reyes, Ben Kabak believes that New York’s GM may want to reconsider.

 It’s a holiday weekend—no, we’re not quite at the All-Star break yet—so take a little time off, enjoy some sun, surf, and fireworks and, of course, some good ol’ baseball. Check back on Tuesday for the latest in hardball, and have a safe and happy Fourth of July.
