One point cuts through all the talk in the Bronx. The Yankees are going to chase everyone down and win this thing.
“How else should I feel?” shrugged Raul from Walton Avenue. “The guys are playing well, they are working their way up in the standings and there are still more than 100 games left. It’s going to be a fun summer.”
It was a fun weekend in the Bronx against the Pirates and we learned a few things:
Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera are as tough as they come.
Doug Mientkiewicz, who is having his broken wrist surgically pinned to cut his recovery time, is pretty tough, too.
This team is a lot better now that Roger Clemens is back.
I can’t seem to find any of the people who wanted to trade Bobby Abreu a couple of weeks ago.
Alex Rodriguez is the biggest right-handed bat in baseball.
Jason Giambi was on the field signing autographs yesterday. He was introduced on “Jason Giambi Bat Day” and received a big welcome from the fans. Bud Selig would receive a much different reception if he ever dared to come to the Bronx.
Derek Jeter is always the leader of this team.
Johnny Damon is fitting in nicely as the designated hitter.
No one plays the game with more joy than Melky Cabrera.
Yeah, it’s going to be a fun summer and that’s the only point that really matters.
