Five In A Row

Well Bomber Buddies the Yankees are in the middle of their first win streak. Don't look now but Boston is getting hot at the same time. ... If we had lost yesterday's game you could bet the Post and News would have had E-Rod on the back pages. We won so Alex's two costly errors was only a minor story. ESPN 1050 Radio even speculated if he has mind problems like our old friend Chuck Knoblauch. ... Tino Martinez has now hit home runs in five consecutive games just three behind his coach Don Mattingly for the MLB record. The record is also held by Dale Long and Ken Griffey Jr. ... After two years of rehab Steve Karsay was finally released Thursday and fellow reliever Felix Rodriguez had surgery on his injured left knee and is expected to be out about four to six weeks. Don't look for F-Rod to return to Pinstripes any time soon. He is not happpy hear and has not tried to hide it. In addition, designated hitter Ruben Sierra planned to take batting practice on a field Friday as he rehabilitates a partially torn right biceps, and could return to the active roster next week. Look for Russ Johnson or Andy Phillips to be odd man out when Ruben returns.
A Happy 80th Birthday is in store for the incredible Yogi Berra. Happy Birthday Yogi.
Well after the off day it is off to the West Coast for our first visit of the year.
