I just wanted to let you know that though things may appear bleak right now being 10 games out and all on your birthday, enjoy the present, because as of today, July 13th 2008, the Yankees just re-signed free agent Wil Nieves after starting catcher Raul Chavez got knocked out of the line-up on a collision at home. It’s too bad, because Chavez and closer Kyle Farnsworth seemed to finally be getting on the same page. Jason Giambi committed three errors at first in one game last week; he’s really having a hard time getting used to playing the field again since Andy Phillips had to move to third after Eric Duncan pulled his hammy. Who would have thought that we would regret releasing Miguel Cairo, who got picked up by the Orioles? At least right-fielder Shelley Duncan is finally hitting above his weight.
