Off Day Quick Hits...

Mike Cameron had another double on Thursday night for the St. Lucie Mets as he continues rehabbing his wrist. St. Lucie lost to the Jupiter Hammerheads (maybe the greatest team name ever) 4-2.

Armando Benitez is our for FOUR MONTHS with a torn hamstring. That means he should be back in time to blow some saves in September.

The Yankees clinched a losing April after a 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Angels, er, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. What a dumb name...Yankees! Kevin Brown took the loss tonight...just another one of life's barriers he can punch through. The way he's pitching, the Yankees are encouraging Brown to punch away.

Epilogue to the John Rocker story: Rocker made his first appearance for the New York based Long Island Ducks in the bottom of the ninth of a 3-3 tie against the Bridgeport Bluefish at the Ballpark at Harbor Yard. Rocker walked the bases loaded, then walked Will Pennyfeather to give the Bluefish the "walk"-off victory. No word on whether Bluefish fans had better aim with their batteries.

Jae Seo goes against the Nationals and Livan Hernandez on Friday night at RFK. Brad Wilkerson has been the Nats' hottest hitter so far...his .348 avg is good enough for 8th in the N.L.
