What me worry???? Yanks take 3 from the lowly Texas Rangers.
Pitching: Mussina looked pretty good for his first start off of the DL. Pettitte did OK even though the relief cost him a win for the third time. Mo gets two saves in one day. Hughes going to the DL creates room for Rassner to get yet another opportunity to show us what he's got. How about the ball that Bruney planted in Sosa's head?? Loved Bruney's reaction after the pitch - blows a snotter on the field while everyone else is making sure Sosa is alive - he reminded me of the Duke from Major League (the third best baseball movie of all-time behind Bull Durham and The Natural).
Hitting: Just as I'm getting ready to call for the head of Mientkiewicz he goes and hits a key HR (I still think Phelps is a better, more sensible option and is being misused by Torre, the displeasure is evident on Phelps' face as well). Matsui was clutch. Abreu needs to find his manhood. There should be a rule against #3 hitters squaring to bunt - maybe we can trade him for a 4th rounder.
Defense: Giambi - turned a Tino-like DP in game 1.
Random Thoughts: Yanks should consider filing a complaint against the league schedulers. How is it fair for the Bombers to fly in from Texas, probably arriving at 6 am - to face a team a few hours later that had to travel from Boston? It seams to me, that every team, except the Yanks, get a day off for travel time before starting another series..... The best team in the NL - the Milwaukee Brewers?!?! ...... How much ahead of the curve are we compared to the ham and eggers that claim to be "the biggest Yanks fans" calling for a look into the training a full month before Marty was told to look for another job.... It'll be interesting to see if Igawa picks up where he left off from the last time we saw him.... Prediction: Yanks take 2 of 3 from Seattle.
