Double Digits

Ten games back now and I think we can safely say the Yankees have been a tad sluggish out of the starting block. The pitching has turned around but the hitting has fallen off a cliff.

A-Rod has returned to that long swing after such a great April with his shorter, quicker, more compact swing. Bobby Abreu has been involved in a Quantum Leap episode and Dr. Sam Beckett has infested his body, Robbie Cano's plate discipline is on a par with Alfonso Soriano's and Jason Giambi and Johnny Damon are both battling injuries.

If it wasn't for your AL batting leaders, Mr Hip Hip and plain old Mr Hip then this team would be ugly.

I have been a cock-eyed optimist for a long while, saying there is a long way to go, which there is, but things have got to change soon, very soon.

Its a little thing I have titled 'Injuries and The Unbalanced Schedule'

Boston are seriously profiting from being in a really beaten up division but Beckett is now on the DL and you know Drew and Papelbon will join him.

There's plenty more on the way to keep this division ticking over. Boston aren't the WS winners everyone wants to make them out to be.

Hey Pete J

How'd the weekend work out for ya! Boston's watching you get smaller and smaller in their rear view mirrors as they pull away from the pack and it looks like no one's going to be able to stop them as they keep picking up steam!!!!!!!

get ready to be swept in Toronto (you have 2 more to go) and then swept (again) at Fenway Park!

GO SOX!!!!
