But all he does is go out and win baseball games. I want him in that rotation and in a playoff series I want to give him the ball as much as possible.

    It was brought up by the classy Kevin Millar. Not too suprising.

    I know it's way too early into the 2012 season, but just imagine a playoff rotation if and when the Yankees get there and also if Nova keeps winning, CC Sabathia getting his groove back and Andy Pettitte gets into full baseball shape and is firing on all cylinders, Wowza!

    Game 1: CC Sabathia
    Game 2: Ivan Nova
    Game 3: Andy Pettitte

    The fourth-man is up in the air between Hiroki Kuroda, Freddy Garcia (if still on the team) and Michael Pineda (if he really starts in 2012). Sorry Phil Hughes, his straight line fastball and non-existent curveball doesn't help me unless you shut me up.

    Yesterday was the first time since April 17, 2009 that the Yankees had at least 5 home runs but no more than 6 runs. In both games the Yankees had exactly 5 home runs, exactly 6 runs, and the run that did not score on a home run was unearned.

    Phelps should really take Garcia's next start

    Yeah, obviously beating a last-place team in April doesn't stack up to perfect games in the grand scheme of things, but I will remember this game a very long time.

    Really? A-Rod getting 10 RBIs makes it a contender for greatest game?

    For me it is the Jeter dive game (7/1/04), hands down.

    I was unable to watch today's game past the 6th inning so I hope it's on Yankees Classics soon!

    That was a great win especially coming back and completely taken their spirit away.

    You guys could not have said it any better. It really is the games like today that i am proud and thankful to be a fan of the New York Yankees. I wish sooo badly that i could have been in that stadium for those last 3 innings, no doubt in my mind there would have been one or more fights eventually leading to one or more people being thrown out. GO YANKS!!
    I'd like to thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee fan

    Today Boston had five pitchers allow more than 1 earned run per inning. The record since 1918 for most teammates to do that in a game is six.

    I actually had to turn it off after the 5th inning. Went out to the mall and come home to find out Yanks blew them out was awesome. Another great game was Abbot's perfect game.
