Best of the Yankee Weekend Blogosphere

Associated Press
Good morning, fanatics! The Yankees split results this weekend with a 6-3 win against the Houston Astros on Saturday, and a 6-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles last night. Robinson Cano left last night's game in the sixth inning after taking a hit on his left hand while swinging at a pitch from Baltimore's Troy Patton. X-rays on Cano's hand were negative, and the injury was ruled a contusion.

Besides the injury, Cano made more news this weekend by hitting his first home run of the Spring Saturday; a 3-run blast that would be the Yankees game winner. If you missed any Yankees action or news from the weekend, here is some of the best coverage from around the blogosphere:
