Crime Report

Former Yankee Jim Leyritz is in trouble again. He's in jail for allegedly battering his ex-wife.

And Steve McNair has been found shot to death. It's unclear if it's a double homicide or a murder-suicide.

McNair was only 36 - young enough to still be playing. He was the first round draft pick of the Houston Oilers in 1995. My friend D. always used to tell me that "Air" McNair was one of the best (and underrated) quarterbacks in the NFL.

McNair had just opened a restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee.

What does Shelley Duncan have to do to get a call up?

Unfortunately for Shelley, I don't think there's any real "fit" with this team. Maybe if he could play CF...but he can't. I think his shaky defense is what led the Yanks to write him off. They have enough DH-types.

They booted him off the 40-man roster, exposing him to waivers, which tells you they don't value him very much. Now they've traded for Hinske, when a right-handed bat seems more what they need.

I think Shelley will probably leave at the end of the season.
