    Breaking News In Yankeeland: The Baltimore Orioles are not the Seattle Mariners.

    Man, what a shame to waste a gem from Rasner. These last four starts from Rasner are probably the best four starts in a row from a Yankees pitcher this season – outside of the four straight from Worm Killer Wang from April 27th through May 13th.

    Big game for Ian Kennedy tomorrow. There’s no way the Yankees want to fall back to being two games under five hundred – because then they’ll have to win (the next) two in a row just to get to .500 at the official one-third mark of the season. I doubt that anyone in Yankeeland had pegged this team to be hovering around .500 with two-thirds of the year remaining.

      Well, welcome to our new set-up world, where the likes of Hawkins and Veras are going to be asked to keep games close and be the bridge to Mo.

      Sure they didn’t hit. But 1-0 or even 2-0 makes for a much different 8th and 9th than 6-0.

      Well, I don’t think the outcome would be different, but what is with Girardi’s obsession with sitting hot hitters due to the handedness of the pitcher? The red hot Giambi sits while the virtually worthless Duncan plays and does his usual nothing.

      The “new set-up world” is a holding pattern until Cox, Melancon, and others are called up.

      The offense has to step up. I agree with Jeremy that Duncan is basically worthless right now.
