    Holy Hekawi, Batman! Chief Wild Eagle thinks it’s a balloon!

    Sorry about that, Chief. What you saw today was a ROCKET!

    [Yeah, F-Troop, Batman, and Get Smart all in one today!]

    Hey, Rocket Roger may be a carpetbagger, but, he’s now our carpetbagger. So, you have to be thrilled to see what he did out there today. Clemens added some energy to a team that was already on a bit of a roll.

    Still, sure, the Yankees are two-games under .500 – even with this latest streak. But, when you looked into that home dugout, during the top of the 9th today, the Yanks looked like a team on top of the world. This team is starting to sense how good they can be now…and, with New York now just 5 games back, in the loss column, of the wildcard, October baseball for the Yankees is there for the taking.

      I’m glad Melky proved his critics from last night wrong. Those two catches of the hits off of Bruney were awesome.

      We shouldn’t overreact to this first start positively or negatively.

      The positive spin could be that he was doing this with only three warmup starts under his belt. The negative spin could be that it was against the Pirates, who can’t hit.

      I was impressed that he’s still able to strike people out. His velocity didn’t bother me much because his fastball still has a lot of life on it.

      I’d trade in Clemens for Hughes in a second, but considering what the alternative is at this point, Clemens is definitely an upgrade and should help the team.
