Well, since I last posted, a lot of things happened in Yankees Universe. On Monday, Dustin Moseley wasn't great, going only 4 and 1/3. He had given up 4 runs, and Girardi had seen enough. He took him out and brought in... Javier Vasquez. I know, I know, it's him. But he was actually very good, going 4 and 2/3 innings and saving the bullpen from getting depleted. He got the win, while giving up only one earned run and striking out 6 on the way.
Teixeira, Cano, and Thames all hit home runs in that game, and Trevor Cahill, the supposed Cy Young contender, was horrible. He gave up 8 runs and pretty much stopped talks of the coveted pitching award.

With Phil Hughes on the mound, I was hoping he could get his 16th win, which would be the second most in the league. Imagine it, later in the year, you could see this headline. C.C. and Phil, 20-game winners, and the 2 most wins in the AL.
Alas, it wasn't meant to be as the Blue Jays beat the bombers 6-3. Phil Hughes started the game by giving up 2 runs early, with Vernon Wells being the catalyst, having a triple and scoring on a past ball. Then, in the third, he hit a 2-run shot making the score 4 nothing.
However, in the top of the 4th, the Yankees used some of their own firepower, with Marcus Thames homering, scoring Robinson Cano. But then, in...

Well, it seems the Yankees just love to mock me. I wrote about how the Yankees bullpen was being as good as ever, and then the next day they give up a run. I wrote how the yankees offense had come back, and then they score 9 runs, making me have to think long and hard about a title for my next post; and yesterday, they scored 11 runs, 11! That meant I had to think of yet another title about how to describe the offense; with 9 of the runs coming in the 6th! Unbelivable. Well, on to what actually happened in the game; it started with yet another home run by Miguel Cabrera, which was his 4th this series and 31st overall this season. However, Phil Hughes calmed down giving up a hit in...

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.
