(Original Caption) 7/18/1941-Cleveland, OH: Joe DiMaggio, slugging outfielder of the New York Yankees, makes a pair of “duck eggs” with his fingers to indicate that for the first time in 57 consecutive games he has gone hitless.

Left handed starting pitcher, Gio Gonzalez, can make an impact for a Major League team this season. The question, though, is where will he do this? He elected to opt out of his contract with the New York Yankees on Saturday. According to Mark Feinsand of, the Yankees now have until Monday, April 22nd to either promote him from AAA or release him. Source: Gio Gonzalez is indeed opting out of his contract with the Yankees.

That accounts for four of the five starting pitcher spots,...
