Yankees Back to Themselves

I got nervous for nothing. I'm so paranoid, that a 6-game win streak against the Pirates and Cubs gets me all meshuga. What for? They come back out against Tampa Bay and stink up the joint. (No references about Henn laying an egg, please.) Henn stinks - that's all there is to it. Quantrill has been lousy all year, and I don't know why they haven't released him. If you'll notice, he only comes into blowout games. Even Rivera walked a couple of guys!

It was almost another here-we-go-again game, but luckily, there haven't been to many this year, except the Pirates game last week when Jose Mesa blew a save (shocking, I know).

So let's see....

-It looks like the Tino Martinez experiment is over. I don't think they expected him to be hitting .226. Boy, doesn't that hot streak when he was hitting all those home runs seem like a looooong time ago?

-Love those reports that the Yankees are shopping Tony Womack. Any team stupid enough to take Mr. .549 OPS gets what they deserve.

-As Manny pointed out, nice of Shemp to wake up with his team in third place.

-I was surprised to see Bubba Crosby in there, albeit as a pinch runner. I thought he had fallen off the face of the earth.

-Enough about Giambi being hot lately. Yeah, I know he's hitting over .300 over his last 12 games or so, but the guy is still on pace to hit 12 dingers this year, so let's take it easy, please.

Man, my heart breaks for Sean Henn. This is twice the poor kid's been yanked out of Double-A ball to lose games for the Yankees against the Devil Rays. I hope this doesn't shake him so badly it ends up killing his career.

What is up with the Yankees and the Devil Rays, anyway? They are having so much difficulty with the freaking D-Rays this year, it's bizarre. Talk about your unexpected dynamics.
