Yankees 3 Red Sox 1

Yankees take 2 out of 3 at Fenway Park. Pitching dominated this series finale. Andy Pettite pitched 6 great innings in his first start of 2010. Pettite gave up only one run. Nothing more you can say about that.

Chan Ho Park redeemed himself with 3 shutout innings in relief. Great job by Park especially against the Red Sox which is not an easy thing to do in relief.

Nick Swisher finally the Yankees on board with a game tying single in the 7th inning. Good heads up for Jorge Posada to go back to the plate and touch it after he missed it to avoid a tag from Victor Martinez in which he never caught the ball.

Curtis Granderson welcome to the Yankees. Granderson with a huge solo shot in the 10th inning to give the Yankees the lead. His next true test is Yankee Stadium.

I don't know about my fellow Yankee fans, but I do question the moves the Yankee organization has made and not made.

Getting Curtis Granderson was a great aquistion, but I question the move to give up Austin Jackson, Yankees top hitting prospect, to get Granderson. Sure, Granderson is a good player, but as I recall, the Yankee organization said they were going to rely on their top prospects a lot more and be part of the team not be part of a trade.

Getting Javier Vasquez for Melky Cabrera. I think Vasquez is a good pitcher, but a good pitcher for the National League with the expection when he was in a White Sox uniform. Melky Cabrera gone is a killer. You basically kill the youthness of the Yankees. Melky Cabrera came up with a lot of clutch hits. I thought the Yankees would improve on
