I know teams in any sport struggle at some point in a season. The New York Yankees needs to wake up. The offense needs to wake up especially in runners in scoring position. The pitching has been ok, but it can do better. The Yankees are lucky their still above .500 and are only 2 games behind the Tampa Bay Rays. I guess its better to struggle early in the season than mid-season or late in the season.

New York Yankees 10- Tampa Bay Rays 0

There was really nothing you can say about this game except for C.C. Sabathia and defense. C.C. Sabathia flirted with a no hitter into the 8th inning. He went 7 2/3 innings of no hit ball until Kelly Shoppach hit a line drive to left. Great job by C.C. Sabathia, he was in control the whole time. Sabathia also had help from his defense. Mark Teixeria with a diving catch. Alex Rodriguez with numerous plays by diving, jumping, long throws, etc.

Mark Teixeria finally came through with 3 hits. Wow!!!

Who cares about the offense today. It was all about C.C. Sabathia.

Some way to kick off the 15th season of MLB on FOX with a flirted no hitter and some great defensive play. Who cares how long a baseball game goes as long as the game has some dramatic exciting

New York Yankees 3 Tampa Bay Rays 9- Last Night Game

I'll make this nice and short.

Javier Vazquez awful start in his second stint as a Yankee. Offense shut down by David Price.

In my opionion, Javier Vazquez will have a decent season and will prove he can pitch in the American League with pressure.

See told you its nice and short. Nothing really good to say about that game.

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.

New York Yankees 6- Boston Red Sox 4

Everyone by now should know that there is no easy win when it comes the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry. This game was no easy win for the Yankees. It took an 8th inning baseloaded walk by Nick Johnson to take the lead for good and Robinson Cano 9th inning solo home run gave the Yankees insurance. It was sloppy game defensively with 3 errors, but a win is a win. The big error that hurt was Marco Scutaro error in the 8th inning which would've ended the inning with the game still tied, but no give the Yankees an extra out and they will take advantage which they did. In the 9th inning, Mariano Rivera seal the win with a save like usual.

A.J. Burnett first start of the season was ok. He allowed 3 runs in 5 innings. He walked only one and struck out five, but he

Going into the season, the one thing I sense that wasn't good about the Yankees was the bullpen. It has already shown. The Yankees bullpen really struggled tonight blowing the lead.

C.C. Sabathia had good start up until the 6th inning, but this typical C.C. Sabathia. Sabathia is terrible in April, but gets very hot after that.

I never liked the acquistion of Chan Ho Park. He'll have to prove it to me because I always thought if you were a N.L. pitcher from the bullpen, you will struggle in the A.L. Park had a bad start. Remember the team you have now won't be the same at the end especially the bullpen. If there are Yankee pitchers that I think will succeed in the bullpen and be the trustworthy person for Giaradi are Dave Robertson, Alfredo Aceves, Damaso Marte, and Joba Chamberlain. Although

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

We started this decade with the New York Yankees as World Series Champions in 2000. We end this decade in 2009 with the New York Yankees as World Series Champions.

What a game. With all the speculation that using 3 pitchers on 3 days rest could cost them, but in end it resulted in World Series title.

Andy Pettite on 3 days rest pitched great. He didn't over do it and pitched smartly. He earned his 18th career postseason win. He won all 3 clinching series games. Simply Amazing.

Yankees offense was really Hideki Matsui. He went 8 for 13 in the World Series. He had 6 RBIs in the clinching game, unbelievable. He went to be the World Series MVP. The first time Japan born player ever won it.

Mariano Rivera shuts down the Phillies for the final 5 outs. How fitting a new stadium, Andy Pettite

A.J. Burnett was just awful tonight giving up 6 runs. Not much to say on a short night for him.

Cliff Lee was effective. He was just like C.C. Sabathia in game 4 where he was effective not dominanting to put his team in position to win the game. Although Lee did give up 5 runs.

Phil Coke 7th inning home runs killed the Yankees because they got 6 runs, but Coke home runs to give the Phillies 6 to 8 runs hurt alot. Phil Coke continue the trend of infectiveness in postseason. Simple thing he had to do is get outs because they were down big already.

Phil Hughes nice outing, but not sure if that will give the Yankees trust to use him with the Yankees having the lead.

Phillies has confidence, but being that they almost blew the game away certainly changed it from lots of confidence to a little
