This was a respectable effort by Joba.
The team looks good and is starting to heat up! It's not the toughest competition but these are the teams they have to beat.
GO YANKEES

Maybe they'll start their "run" before the All-Star break, unlike last year. I'm really concerned about Wang and Pettitte, of all people. What's happening to Andy? Old Moose is doing pretty well, though.
GO YANKEES!

I think they'll be OK. Just a little slump-hopefully!

They might extend his next outing to 90 pitches. They also said they might let him wipe his own back side very soon.

The team with the highest payroll in the sport is in last place folks. And I am not talking about the Knicks.

I feel like I have to say the same thing every time I post. Its a long season and anything can happen. Plus, the Yankees have come back from bigger deficits. We are only 6 and a half out, much larger of a hurdle then even last year. Yeah if they continue to play lousy then it will be worse but right now they aren't in last place and there is a hell of a lot of baseball to be played. Last year the Mets were in first almost all season and missed out on the playoffs. So don't worry about the Yanks or the payroll, they will be fine. As far as Joba, I don't know. Personally I want him to be kept in longer but I am no pitching coach, its just my opinion. But I did like what I saw from Giese. The young players aren't a wash and they are getting seasoned. I am not worried. I do wish A-Rod would have run hard out of the box when he was watching what he thought was a homer turn into a double and a throw out going for three. Its coming together and we will see how Boston and TB fare for the remainder of the season. Anything can happen and thats why I love the game.

How bout the old timer Jason giambi? Wow, Arod has not been as great as last year although he has missed 3 weeks from that quad injury but he is starting to heat up, but right now jason giambi is carrying the team on his back, love the guy, he is proving he can still carry a team. He is on pace for 40 Hrs and 100 RBI this year, go yankees!

What ruined baseball was lowering the pitcher's mound, adding the DH, building hitter-friendly ball parks and over-emphasizing home runs on ESPN.

Don't even get me started on basketball ...

The rays are going to be out of it by july, they don't have what it takes to be a winning team over a season of 162 games. The red sox will however contend all year, so will the yankees and blue jays.
