A great month comes to a close.
Wang is ready. A decision needs to be made on whether Joba or Hughes goes to the pen. While both have shown they can pitch as a starter, shown flashes of greatness, unfortunately neither has been able to show they can make it past the 5th on a consistent basis.
About the only area right now that I'd like to see improved is the bullpen (exception being Aceves). We did the right thing with Ramirez, now it's time to do something with Veras. Make some room, flip a coin on whether it will be Joba or Phil replacing him.
The Yanks were not the only ones that were treated well in the month of May. Carl Pavano who pitched pretty damn well Sunday, went 5-1 for the month.
Teixeira an MVP candidate?
Not too many times in my life I've said this before - but, the sooner we can get Melkey back in the lineup the better.
Will it be a rough start to the summer? The Bombers start June with Texas, Tampa, and the Sox.
I just saw on Yankees.com that Ichiro has a 24 game hit streak - if there's a player that can challenge Joe D's mark, it is he. It'll be interesting to see how far it goes.
