Very winnable game with Weaver on the mound. We just need a quality start from Mr. Kennedy. Hopefully the success he was having in the minors translates well here.

I'm excited for IPK's re-debut. I've got lots of faith in him.

Kennedy has never faced the Angels.

And Weaver verses the Yanks

Looks like in your avatar that you got your hands on one of those Joba standees from Dunkin Donuts...I want one...


Anyway, SSS and all, I'd like to see Alex bust his slump off of Lil' Weaver. Ditto Giambino.

Ian throw strikes, that's all I ask.

Hope the Yanks can crush Weaver for 4 more HRs tonight and keep the winning streak going.

Of course Betemit hit one of those HRs so naturally he gets the night off.

Carlos Silva pitching against TB so I don't expect any help there but I'd be nice if the good Buehrle shows up against the RSox.

Yanks are in a truly brutal portion of their schedule. No off days for eons, playing in tremendous heat for a bunch of days, etc... Girardi is smart to cycle around the days off and DH days for his players.

True...but it's also Rays on the road, which is a brutal team.

Girardi is smart to cycle around the days off and DH days for his players.I like what Girardi has been doing with the DH spot the last week or so, I was more commenting on his tendency to sit a guy just because whether he is hot or cold. Like Betemit hit a homer off Weaver just 5 days ago, has started the last 3 days, so naturally he's on the pine tonight.

maybe it's just what is standing out in my mind, but it seems like Wilson always good contact.

Anyway, just another reason to hate the effing angels. I'm stuck in the airport for 9 hours (flight leaves 11pm, supposed to leave 4pm, got in at 2pm) and I figure- hey at least I won't miss the game.

Mother effers.

melky is in centre so she must be available to pinch hit.

I'm hopeful Matsui comes back and the outfield will then be Nady, Damon, Abreu for most of the rest of the year. I'd also like to see Christian ahead of Melky on the depth chart.

I would go for that too. Keep Melky as a defensive replacement for Johnny in CF late in the game.

How Carlos Silva does that and also produces John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman is really astonishing.
