The Mighty Damon Hollins!!!

22 runs in 2 games. This just gets better and better. Against the D-Rays of Nick Green, Josh Phelps, and of course, Damon Hollins. I don't know how Mel Stottelmyre still has a job. He can't get anyone to pitch half-decently. And aside from Henn's struggles, you've got to give it to the Yanks' bullpen again. If they stop the bleeding, the Yanks have a chance to win this one. But this pen is awful. Hell, the whole team is awful. And I'm loving every minute of it. After getting beat by Tampa, I can't wait to see the Yanks face some quasi-legit teams like Oakland and Seattle.

I actually went to, and I relished what I saw. Yankee fans saying the year is over, they're not going to make the playoffs, etc. Hey, I was once a Yankee fan, and I when I knew the team was spending tons and yet heading south, I switched sides. Now, everyone's starting to realize the cracks in the Yankees. It's nice to be ahead of the curve every once in a while.

--- You gotta love the Yankees/Mets contrast last night. The Mets have three starters on the shelf and can still get a quality arm out there, as Jae Seo pitched a great game against Met-killer Pat Burrell and the Phils. The Yanks are throwing AA kids out there when their pitchers get hurt. Even the Sox have got decent outings from Jeremi Gonzalez and John Halama this week. It's called depth, Mr. Cashman. Ever heard of it?
