For My Next Trick…

tablecloth

The Red Sox are done for the year but they play the Yanks 9 more times and could be a pain in the ass. Yeah, their starting pitching is thin this weekend but then you look and see the Yanks counter with Capuano, Greene, and Phelps and nothing feels certain.

The Yanks received mercy from the Rangers and the Gods yesterday. Let’s hope they leave Texas tonight with a nice, professional series win. And who is more of a pro than our man Hiroki?

In order to avoid a 3-game losing streak, the Yanks will have to beat the Rangers on a night when Yu Darvish starts. They escaped trouble with Darvish last week thanks to a rainstorm. They’ll need old fashioned things–like hits and runs to best him tonight.

Summertime

I like this David Phelps. He’s not a great pitcher but he’s a competitor. He’ll need to be on point tonight against the formidable Yu Darvish. And the Yanks need him to pitch deep into the game after the bullpen worked overtime last night.

Well, Okay, Then

The Wife and I ran errands yesterday afternoon and so we followed the game in fits and spurts with John and Suzyn. Wouldn’t you know it but the Yanks won, 7-1.

Not bad, so far. 

Today gives a stiffer challenge with the Reds throwing Johnny Cueto.

Hard to Earn: Small Wonder

Man, the kid was good. Stands up tall on the mound, works quickly, has poise. Even when he got into trouble, he didn’t rattle. Shane Greene gave the Yanks exactly what they needed on Saturday afternoon as they beat the Orioles, 3-0.

Now, if only Chase Whitley can do likewise today.

Never mind the break:

The Yanks traded for Jeff Francis today.

They are in Baltimore this weekend to wrap up the first half of the season before the All Star Break.
