Yankees - Sweep Toronto, Good Job Cashman

You can now officially consider the Toronto Blue Jays out of the race for the AL East Division Title. Yankees sweep the Jays while out scoring them 20-4. With the win today the Yanks go 5-1 for the home stand, win 8 of their last 9 games, and pull into a tie for the lead in the Eastern Division with the sox. The storyline for the next few weeks = Can the sox continue to pull last minute wins out of their arse now that they too are feeling the sting of injuries?

The Yanks are blazing right now and it's just a matter of days before we get Cano back and a maybe less than a month before we get Matsui back. The pitching staff has been steady. Cashman looks like a genius for not trading Wang, who looks like he is learning a lot from Mussina, as far as playing his position goes. Speaking of Cashman, Lidle pitches 7 today and only gives up one run and Wilson and Abreu both get big RBIs.

I just hope that Torre continues to find a way to put Melky "Melkman" Cabrera and Bernie Williams in the lineup.

Also, Jeter (MVP) extends hit streak to 12 games, Giambi continues to crush the ball and now has 31 homeruns, and it looks like A-Rod is working his way out of his slump.

Can you tell I'm excited?

We're only two weeks away from the biggest series of the year! A five game set at Fenway! If we can put another game between us and them and then sweep them the division will be ours again!!!!
