    Top Yankees prospect puts birth certificate drama behind him

    Estevan Florial is exactly the prospect the Yankees envisioned, even if they didn’t envision his name. Among the Yankees’ additions from the 2014 international signing period was Haniel d’Oleo, a then-17-year-old out of the Dominican Republic who did not project to have a weakness. The Yankees saw the bat speed, the foot speed and the strong arm for a lefty-hitting outfielder, built for Yankee Stadium. They did not see his birth certificate. Florial was born in Haiti, and his mother moved them to the Dominican Republic, where she sought getting her son enrolled in school.

Here’s how to tell exactly how much of it you’ll be able to see. At least a couple eclipses are visible somewhere on earth every year.

I was also curious what sports stuff was going on during the last times these things happened. So let’s look it up as we go. 1. The last total eclipse visible from anywhere in the United States (though this one was only Hawaii): Thursday, July 11,

    It’s time for Girardi to take action on the Aaron Judge crisis

    BOSTON — Alex Rodriguez was the Yankees’ feel-good story for most of 2015. He had not played in 2014, suspended for his ties to Biogenesis. Thus, for the first time in his career expectations were low. He batted seventh on Opening Day 2015, but hit well enough that Joe Girardi soon moved him to the third spot. A-Rod’s strong production and the positive vibe that developed around him carried the whole team. Rodriguez had 24 homers and a .930 OPS through July and the Yankees led the AL East by six games. But when he collapsed in August, the whole offense followed. The Blue Jays zoomed into first place and the Yankees had to settle for a wild card. Aaron Judge was promoted last August after Rodriguez
