A-Rod is back!!! Yanks win

The first pitch A Rod saw in the first inning in Baltimore promptly got deposited in the stands for a 3 run home run.
That is something that has been missing from the Yanks offense.

And CC Sabathia made it stand up as he pitched a complete game shutout, scattering 4 hits and striking out 8. CC finished strong, striking out the side in the ninth.

This was just what we needed, with Alex banging the ball, and CC going deep in the game.

Phil Hughes looks to make it 2 in a row tomorrow night.

One bright spot is that the Yankees have struggled, yet have managed to hang around .500, while no one has run away with the division. They are only about 5 games out, which they can make up in a good week or so.

Go Yankees

Damn Yankees

If Teixiera comes up again tonight with a runner on third and less than 2 outs and fails (again) I'm going to be really pissed.

Last night, he hit a weak grounder back to the pitcher. The night before , a little popup.

Well, at least A-Rod is back, so that should help. And they are playing the Orioles, so that should help, too.

Manny Ramirez suspended 50 games

Just reported on Francesa:

Ok, it wasn't steroids, but it was a drug used for women. It is reported that sometimes it is used by someone who took seroids as they come off 'roids.

Ok, Manny is the only Sox player I didn't hate, so I'm kind of a fan and want to give hime every benefit of the doubt.

But it doesn't look good.

As a Yankees fan, I'm pretty happy that it isn't about A-Rod for once.

Yanks play tonight at 7, weather permitting. Yeah, it's raining again. But the Yankee bats have been quiet. Last night, Teixeira got one key hit. Big deal. In the 10th, with one out and Damon on 3rd, he hit a weak popup. He needs to step up and earn some of that big money.

Yanks fail miserably against BoSox

This team is having a lot of trouble scoring. The 3,4, and 5 spot contributed a grand total of 2 singles yesterday.

A-Rod is due back possibly as early as Friday, and it is none too soon. To put up 3 runs and expect to win--that is not realistic.

Joba pitched ok, with 12 strikeouts in 5.2. But the 3 run HR to Jason Bay more than cancelled out what would have been a good game.

The Rays come in tonight, and the Yankees need to put a few runs on the board. AJ Burnett takes the hill to try to turn things around.
