There were no updates yesterday because I was busy with a family member’s wedding.

There is a silver lining to that, however: On my way home I stopped at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., and got plenty of great Yankees-related pictures that I will post later today. If you have never been to the Hall of Fame, I highly recommend that you go as soon as you can.

Here are some notes from the weekend:

Banuelos and Betances weren’t expected to be promoted this year, but injuries and trades made it necessary. They are now part of a rotation with Andrew Brackman, Hector Noesi and Adam Warren that could be one of the best rotations in the minor leagues.

Thanks to Robinson Cano, A-Rod’s absence hasn’t killed the Yankees. Hopefully he stays hot and continues his MVP campaign.
