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…
