    (39-25) 14 innings, 7 from Pettitte, and the first Yankee win this season without a home run. Poised for a sweep. Risp was a pitiful 2 for 18.

    Watched the game on MLB network. My boy says to me, "Daddy, I can hear the l
    'Let's go Yankees!' chant in the background," as he claps his hands: clap, clap, clap-clap-clap! That's good training...

    LET'S GO YANKEES!

    There sure were a whole lot of Yankee fans there.

    I was tempted to ride down to one of this weekends games. I found tickets for $25 on Stubhub, but I was a bit too busy to make it happen. But even without me we swept.
    BTW if Strasburg was starting any game I would have likely made the trip. The Nats are young and are going to be a good team for a while at the rate they are going. Maybe good enough to win the NL East but not AL East good:D

    (41-25) 10 wins in a row. CC gets a complete game in with 10 K's. Now 2.5 games ahead in the A.L. East.

    (41-26) A slight bump in the road, but still 2.5 games ahead in first place. Kuroda went 7, but RISP tells the tale with 2 for 11.

    Jinx!

    (41-27) Blew two in row with Hughes going 4 and a third innings. Four round trippers off Hansen did not help. Time to regroup with the Mets coming up this weekend.

    (41-28) Pettitte struggled in the first giving up 5 runs. If Swisher had made the catch at the wall, perhaps the outcome could have changed, but it was a valiant attempt regardless. Relying on the long ball and turning 2 for 8 with RISP has been our problem all year.
    Nova vs. Young today.
    Still first place.

    (42-28) Very tight tonight. It came down to a managerial decision on Pitching changes. Not to mention the Mets were 1 for 14 with RISP and we were 1 for 4. Good job by the Bullpen.
    The big matchup is tomorrow with Sabathia and Dickey.

    if "relying on the long ball" is our problem, i say we stick with that problem, given that we have the 2nd best record in baseball. i'm not sure why anyone views that as a problem, and sees scoring runs with small ball as some sort of high standard- a run is a run.
