High Spirits: Yanks-Tribe Gamer V

Now that we have discussed our particular flavors of vodka (in what I found to be a very refreshing conversation, but the way) after a day off, it’s time to get back to enjoying some baseball action as the Yankees go to the Jake, and place Pettitte against the Cleveland nine. The Bombers’ bats battle Cliff Lee.

As your attorney, I advise you not to look back at the April series without a potent potion close at hand. Comment away…

  • Wang looked fine on Tuesday to me. His form was good, kept his leg straight, tapped the right toe, had the arm moving. I don’t see any reason he shouldn’t be back in the lineup.
