Yankees Blog | ESPN New York ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- With the Yankees, and Curtis Granderson, suffering yet another crippling injury, the game itself -- a 9-4 Yankees win, only their fourth in the last 17 games they've played at the Trop -- almost seemed secondary. But there were non-injury-related stories, to wit: Ben Francisco#45 RFNew York Yankees2013 STATS GM21 HR1 RBI1 R4 OBP.220 AVG.114• Robinson Cano was credited with a hit-by-pitch, and an RBI, when HP umpire John Hirschbeck ruled Cano was hit by Cesar Ramos' fifth-inning pitch.

Heat Zone | Palm Beach Post George Hill apparently has a tendency toward hyperbole. In response to a rather hyperbolic question, about whether there’s anyone scarier — when looking at the defense — than LeBron James, Hill offered this assessment: “Yeah, it’s only like one person that’s more scarier than that and that’s God.” Well, then. “I’m nowhere near close,” James said. “I made two mistakes tonight. That hurt out team. And that hurt more than anything. Let my teammates down. They expect me to make plays down the stretch, and I had the ball with the opportunity to make a couple of plays and I came up short. That burns...
