So far, so good

This week has all in all been a good one for the Yankees this week, splitting a short two game set with the D'Rays before sweeping the Blue Jays in another quick series north of the border.

On Monday the Yankees amassed a grand total of 13 runs in the second inning, with every hitter getting a hit in just that inning, and only Sheffield not coming to the plate twice. Tino finished it off with a Grand Slam and everyone felt the Yanks were back on the right track.

The next night though saw Randy Johnson again disappointing with a poor show at the stadium as the D'Rays leveled up the season series and got their first victory in the Bronx since 2003.

Carl Pavano pitched well as did the Moose against the Jays as the starting rotation looks to step up after a woeful start to the season. They were helped by veteran Yankees Jorge Posada and Bernie Williams who are starting to hit, with the former grabbing his first round-tripper of the young season on Wednesday.

Kevin Brown goes for the Yanks tonight, and whilst many fans were down on him after his outing in Baltimore, I saw rust in the first two innings but a good outing after he had shaken it off. I look to Brown to be a surprise this season and pitch well. He'll be joined by Jaret Wright and Randy Johnson as they take on the hard hitting Texas Rangers in a three-game series in the Bronx over the weekend.
