Yankees have been very good in interleague play this year, record of 10-4 so far heading into this afternoon's game with the Brewers, before heading into CitiField to face the Mets in part 2 of the 2011 Subway Series.
It is expected that Bartolo Colon will come of the DL and face the Mets Saturday. I would guess one of the nameless arms on the ever revolving door in the bullpen will be moved or perhaps the Yankees jettison Gordon.
Also in an odd move the Yankees waive or release or option I forget which, Buddy Carlyle and pickup Sergio Mitre from the Brewers for cash considerations. Not sure why the Yankees keep coming back to this guy. Though he has improved as a reliever, posting 2 seasons with ERA's in the low 3's, his career ERA over 8 seasons is in the mid 5's.
The Yankees should be getting healthy real soon. Colon coming of the DL this Saturday, Hughes, Jeter, and Chavez could all be back next week. Soriano by the end of July. If Hughes can comeback and be what he was last year that would be great. I just hate messing with the rotation when everything seems to be going very good for the Yankees right now. Yankees have the second best record in MLB, are 16 games over .500 (47-31) behind only the Phillies. They have 2.5 game lead on the Sox and 3.5 on the Rays.
There's a lot of talk about doing away with the divisions in MLB and just let the top 3,4, or 5 teams in the playoffs...well if MLB did that, your top 3 AL teams all come from the AL East right now. And Toronto would only be 2 games back from making that the Top 4 from the AL East. Be careful what you wish for MLB.
