What would all the pundits be saying about the Yankees if their record was 30 - 3? That is what it could have been had the Yanks been able to hold their leads. In the 17 loses to date, the Bombers had the lead in 14 of them before the final out. Even if that was their record, they still would have signed Clemens just to send a message anyway.
Yanks have 3 of the top ten in batting average in the AL: Jeter leading at .363, Posada at .353, and A-Rod, even after his relatively cold May so far is still batting .344.
Joe Mauer, many wondering if last season's batting crown winner (.347 in '06) was a fluke, a one season wonder. Clearly not as he is tied for third, interestedly enough with Jorge at .353.
Is Beckett really as good as his numbers are trying to tell us? 7-0, pacing at 35 wins on the year with a 2.51 ERA - I refuse to believe it.
Rassner and DeSalvo set to face the same in team in less than a week which makes is doubtful they'll have a repeat of their last outing.
I hate the way the season is scheduled out. Same team, bunched together in a 10 day span - boring.
The Brewers have the best record in baseball with a winning .pct of better than .700 - are they the best team or just a product of the schedule? Regardless of the answer they have a genuine superstar in the making in Prince Fielder.
I'm hearing rumors about Matsui being pissed at Kei Igawa for disgracing the homeland with his performance YTD.
Toronto gets the Most Disappointing Team award 1 1/2 months into the season. Under .400, it actually could be the best thing that can happen to them. This will give management the justification to get rid of the hack they have now for a manager and find a real one to get them back into relevancy. Toronto is a big market and would be good for the game to get something happening with this franchise again.
I have a strong suspicion that Scooter was at the Free Paris Hilton rally in Manhattan.
The Yanks will likely make up some ground on the BoSox early next week as the Sox play a real team for once, Detroit, at Fenway, for a three game set.
