Mike Mussina can tie Cliff Lee for the league-lead with 13 wins and the Yanks can win 10 straight home games for the first time since 1998 (they won a few games that year). But most importantly, the Yankees can extend a post-all-star-game mojo that has filtered through every part of the team – starting rotation, bullpen, and offense (let’s not talk about the bottom third of the lineup) – before heading north to face-off against Boston.
Pitching for the Twinkies is southpaw Glen Perkins, who has won 5 straight decisions since the last game he lost on May 30 against…a Mike Mussina-led Yankee team. Hopefully the Yanks will stay focused on who is in front of them and not what awaits in Boston. Keep those bats warm fellas and let’s all try to acknowledge roll-call in between plays and not during them today!
Work productivity about to go in the toilet for the next 3-4 hours…comment away!!!!
