Yankees made it 3 in a row last night against Texas.   Josh Hamilton even hit 2 homers but they were solo shots.   Garcia had a nice game and the bullpen did it’s job.  Eric Chavez is on fire and added 3 hits last night.   Yankees go for the sweep today as Nova is up against Holland.   First pitch is scheduled for 1:05EST.

  1. Ha ha ….. Arod mentored him all right ……..

    Melky – A is for anabolic, B is for Boli , C is for Cabrera

    Here are Yuri, Aroid and The MelkMan coming out of a hotel after a “mentoring” session:

  2. Here is Billy Beane talking about the Great Jeter and the Flip play that beat his A’s:

    Ricciardi’s boss, Billy Beane? He was not angry over Jeremy Giambi’s failure to slide, and he was not exasperated over Danley’s failure to see the play as a tie-goes-to-the-runner proposition. Beane was simply awed by Jeter’s grace.

    “It’s almost as if Derek designed it,” he said, “like, ‘Hey, I’ve got to
    go into the dugout anyway.’ It had to be perfect and fit right into his
    schedule. There were two outs, he flipped to Posada on his way to the dugout, and just sort of disappeared.

    “Derek Jeter even has an elegant way of breaking your heart.”
