Only In NY can a game feature the game's best (Halladay & A-Rod), and other sure fire HOFers like Jeter and Mo, and yet the guy who causes all the flash bulbs to go off is a rookie late inning reliever - I love it.
Good Sign?: During the championship years the biggest difference between the Bombers and the rest was their record in 1 run games. Tonight was a tight one, and they came through - perhaps a sign of things to come.
Last week I said I thought that Wang would win 20 and not win the Cy Young. I'm going to up my estimate and say he's going to win 22 and still not win the Cy Young.
The Yanks play everyday for the next 19 days I'm interested, and hopeful, to see how Girardi is going to be able to manage the bull pen without burning these guys out.
Giambi - Earned his keep today. Great fielding, got on base, worked the count, and made a heads up base running play. Good for him, good for the Yanks.
Fantasy Update: League has drafted. I think Scooter has the inside track, his first two picks ended up being Albert Pujols, and Prince Fielder (Francisco Liriano is pitching in my home town for the next few weeks and I don't think stats in Rochester count though.).
