The article focuses on the performance of various baseball teams. The addition of Mike Myers gives the New York Yankees the lefthanded specialist they desperately needed. Rob Mackowiak, acquired by the Chicago White Sox from the Pittsburgh Pirates, will serve as Joe Crede's backup at third base, but Mackowiak also can play first or second base. The Anaheim Angels acquired a lefthander for their bullpen when they landed J.C. Romero from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for minor league IF Alexi Casilla. Though C Ramon Hernandez has been hampered by injuries the past two seasons, the Baltimore Orioles consider him an upgrade from C Javy Lopez.
