1. Joe Girardi had a message for his players in the clubhouse after Sunday’s 12-5 win in Texas: “You’ve got to stop making it so hard on yourselves.” Girardi was reacting minutes after the last out was recorded on a 3-4 road trip that featured plenty of blunders. Most obviously, the Yankees committed nine errors, all in the last four games. When asked, Girardi wouldn’t elaborate on his message.

Maybe that part is painful.

As someone –- don’t remember who or I’d give credit -– was saying earlier, Hughes was more dominant in his no-hit bid than CC was against the Rays. It wasn’t like there

Sometimes when you set goals, you have to be prepared for obstacles that prevent you from reaching them. Or immediately reaching them.

Welcome to my Twitter world. Last night, I could not tweet from my Blackberry. I tried. I failed. I do not know why.

I will try to rectify the situation by tomorrow evening. I can’t make any promises. Like the IPod –- which every single person I know told me was simple to set up but took me days -– my initial Twitter experience has not reached expectations. And I had big expectations -- to equal the number of followers of Ozzie Guillen. At this writing, I’m 47,222 short. I’ll keep working on it.

Hey, the IPod thing worked out well, even if it was a slight struggle. I have no reason to believe Twitter won’t have a similar
