Sticking with the old mug for good luck

Good morning all.  With a Baltimore loss and Yankees win the Yankees are back on top of the A.L. East.  I guess that team meeting woke some of the players up.   The Yankees now begin a huge four game series with the O’s.  Winning this series is a must.  On the mound tonight is Hughes vs. Chen.   First pitch is scheduled for 7:05PM EST.

Enjoy the day and the game.  Now for some links…
