Okay, okay, so we lost, and so what that Jose Bautista sure looked like he was trying to show us up, and what if we lost the AL East lead last night; I've got answers to all of that. We will win this series, Bautista is on my fantasy team and anyway the Blue Jays are in 4th place, there not making the playoffs anytime soon; and we will at the end of the year, win the division. So don't panic Yankees fans.

The Yankees quite frankly, dominated the Mariners yesterday. C.C. was a beast, the offense had 3 home runs, and we won the series, 2 games to 1. To start the game, C.C. didn't give up a hit until the 5th, and I was wondering, with the rain, what would happen if Sabathia was throwing a no-hitter, however the rain delay was too long for him to come back out. This reminds me of David Cone's perfect game, but that game's rain delay was only 33 minutes, whereas this one's was 57 minutes. Seeing what Girardi has said about near perfect games or no-hitters this year, (remember C.C.'s almost no-hitter on April 10, when Joe said even if he had gotten Kelly Shoppach out he would've taken Sabathia out of the game).

Well, maybe we should've expected this, going against a pitcher we never faced before, what else to expect but a shutout by the pitcher. And then Valverde comes in, whadya know? We score a run and have the bases loaded with Jeet up. Then this happens. I know, it looks promising, but not even the speedy combo of Gardner and Jeter can stop a double play. Max Scherzer, the Tigers pitcher who kept the Yankees to two hits through 6 innings with 6 strikeouts, was "dominant." He has been good for the Tigers lately, look at his last 5 starts. Pretty good, if I do say so myself; but let's focus on Javier Vasquez's start.

Well they say three is the magic number, and it was for the Yankees on Saturday night. Why, you ask? Because there were three home runs in the sixth inning from Alex Rodriguez, Jorge Posada, and Curtis Granderson, three home runs by A-Rod in the game, and this was the third game in the series. Early in the game, it looked like this might be a close game, but with the help of the homers, the Yankees easily beat the Royals, 8-3.

Well, the yanks game could be described by one word: rain. There were two rain delays that amounted up to a total of 2 hours and 41 minutes. Dustin Moseley, the yankees starting pitcher, didn't do so well. He went 4 and 1/3 while giving up 8 hits and 4 runs. Now, was some of this due to the rain? I don't think so, seeing that he gave up the runs in the second inning, before the rain even came, and from there on didn't give up a run; but, since there was a rain delay for so long, it was the cause for Joe Girardi to pull him out of the game after the longer delay of the two.

At a time, I thought the Yanks were going to get swept. I know, I know, WHAT was I thinking. Thank goodness that these are the New York Yankees, who can't get swept by a team from Texas; buuuuuuuut, they were facing Cliff Lee. As I wondered how I could try to make up for the loss, it came to me, "They were facing Cliff Lee! They were facing Cliff Lee!" I instantly had an excuse. However, it turned out the Bombers didn't need an excuse as they got 8 hits and 4 runs off Lee, but the Rangers ace did have 11 strikeouts against the Yankees. He left with a 6-4 lead, but they Yankees bullpen was stellar and frankly, the Rangers wasn't. Texas had 6 relievers follow Lee, with Frank Francisco (1)...
