Robinson Cano bat has awoken since about mid week. The rookie who has lit the International League on fire has found his stroke in the majors against Seattle and Oakland. It may have helped that the A's and Mariners are slightly better than a AAA club but at least Robbie is gaining confidence and that's half the battle. In the last seven days Cano is hitting .389 bring his BA well above the Mendosa Line to a comfy .325
Jason Giambi's bat has come alive in Oakland as well he has three hits in three games including t he GWRBI Sunday in Oakland. Let's hope he closes his mouth now and carries it over to Seattle tomorrow. Bernie Williams is expected to be back in the line up Monday or Tuesday, Joe Torre has said Bernie has been cleared to play defense in CF as well.

Joe Torre has become the 13th manager to collect his 1800th wind with the Yankees 6-4 victory over the Oakland A's on Sunday. Robinson Cano went 4 for 5 in the winning cause.

Tino Martinez went deep twice giving him 8 Home Runs in his last 8 games.

I don't want to hear anyone putting down New York fans. Following a night where a fan in Oakland threw a beer on Jason Giambi, the fourth inning turned into a circus. Several fans jumped on and off the field to play a game of tag with the Oakland security. Now these fans need to be made example of. They need to be arrested and become known offenders. They need to be banned from the ballpark. Are they waiting for someone to get hurt before they do something? Even the Raider fans stay in the stands. Oakland needs to beef up security ASAP.
Congrats go out to Manny Ramirez of the Red Sox for hitting his 400th Home Run.
