Well a nice come from behind win.  We played like a team and hopefully we look back at this game as the one that sent us on the road to #28 this October.

Who's Sori - ano now?

Maybe Cashman was right all along.  Maybe we should hope he takes the player option.  Maybe someone else will step up and fill Mo's shoes.

Seems like the Yankees signed damaged merchandise once again.  Rafael Soriano has been shut down indefinitely with a balky elbow.  So much for taking over for Mariano Rivera.

Soriano was sent for another MRI; and is out indefinitely, in case you didn't hear he is out indefinitely!  Rafael Soriano has been sent for another MRI examination as the reliever had to cut short a flat ground throwing session on Monday after feeling more soreness in his pitching elbow.  “I’m more concerned now,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “I really thought that we would have him getting ready to possibly go out on a rehab assignment shortly and that doesn’t seem to be the case now.”  You think so Joe?
Soriano signed a three-year, $35 million contract to serve as Mariano Rivera’s primary setup man. With Soriano out, the Yankees have patched together their late-inning mix by asking more of Dave Robertson and Joba Chamberlain, as well as Luis Ayala. Since he contributed nothing I don't if we should view it as a loss if he goes under the knife ending his season.

Happy Birthday Yogi Berra!!!

Yogi Berra turns 86 years young today.

Happy BtBirthday
Still a very famous face of the franchise, Yogi Berra, the fans and the New York Yankees are bonded for eternity.  Just as popular today with the Yankees as he was during his playing days, maybe more.  Yogi Berra is New York, and he is a Yankee for life.

Finally showing some spunk.  Look for the team to follow.
It has a long way to go before I am happy with Jeter's ABs but he took a step in the right direction Sunday as the Yankees beat the Texas Rangers 12-5.  The Yankees leave the Longhorn State taking two of three from Texas.  "Everybody needs a day like this, regardless if you're swinging well or you're not swinging well," Jeter said. "I just want to be comfortable. ... It's pretty difficult to hit when you're sitting around trying to think of too many things, and I found myself thinking of things early on."

Under a microscope all season as he started slowly following a 2010 drop-off, the 36-year-old Jeter also had three RBIs and his first stolen base of the year while raising his batting average from .256 to .276. 

Andruw Jones is playing LF like he is wearing cement shoes. No pop in his bat. Unless he doubles up on the Geritol he'll be gone this month.

Buddy Can You Spare A Hit?

The starting pitching has been good beyond expectations.  Now if the bats will wake up, we can be OK.  To add insult to injury Eric Chavez broke a bone in his foot today as well so it scramble time to find a replacement for the super sub. 

I think I like it better when we lose the first game and sweep the rest of the series.  This Detroit Series was da pits. 

It off to the scene of last fall's crime as the Bombers go into Texas to take on the first place Rangers over the weekend.  This time they won't have Cliff Lee on their side as he signed with the Phillies.

Derek Sanderson Jeter was rested today due to some hip stiffness.  He does not look comfortable out there at all, but look for Jeter to rise to the occasion.
