The season is a quarter over already, munecas
, and the Yanks are still under .500. Unlike last year, though, no one seems to be panicking. Why is that? Do people have more faith in Girardino than they did in Torre? Are they just more patient? Assuming things will pick up with A-Rod and Jorgie Porgie Pudding and Pie return? I'm not sure, but I greatly appreciate the positive vibes. All that negativity last year was a downer and unnecessary. The only one fired up at the moment is
Ozzie Guillen Jr Hank Steinbrother
, and I doubt any of y'all are surprised about that.
The biggest excitement/source of great anticipation today is the return of I-Ken, who is coming back
after two good outings down in AAA. He should be brimming with confidence due to those performances - which is exactly what the Yanks were hoping would happen by sending him down - and I would love nothing more today than to see him succeed. If the lackadaisical offense can come out of hiding and score a few runs (they've scored FOUR runs in the last 33 innings... that is not good. In case you weren't sure. Sorry to inform you), he'll have a good chance to record his first win of the season and carry the team to a nice .500 average.
Too bad Kazmir is on the mound. The bats are going to have to work extra hard.Lineup
