The Yanks [1] started the second half right with a 7-3 [2] victory over the Devil Rays in Tampa Bay. Stop the presses, they are a .500 team again. I didn’t catch but the last two innings though on the count of I met up with a group of old New York Giant fans up the block (Cait Murphy came and spoke about her new book, Crazy ’08 [3], which looks excellent). But I was thrilled to learn that the Bombers caught James Shields [4] on an off-night. Andy Pettitte wasn’t great, but he was good enough as Bobby Abreu led the offense. Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez and Abreu hit back-to-back-to-back dingers in the fourth inning. Sweet.

Jeff Karstens [5] had a re-hab start. Be nice to see him back in the bigs, huh?
