You mean those bats are used to hit baseballs? Who knew?! The Yanks didn’t do wonders for their Pythagorean Record last night because of some middle relief issues, but they still won. More importantly, they hit and actually scored more than 4 runs. Does this mean the Yanks’ vaunted offense has finally decided to join the party?
Edwin Jackson, who was once a prospect on the level of Phil Hughes, hopes the Yanks return to their early season ways, which means he wants a duplicate of his last start against the Bombers. There’s the scary possibility, AL East fans, that Jackson is finally living up to the hype after a few years of disappointment. He’s been very good in his first two starts. The Yanks counter with the wiley veteran Andy Pettitte, who is coming off a good start. Let’s make this two in a row. Go Bombers! Use those bats the way they were meant to be used!
From Pete Abe. Cano and Giambi are back.
