1. The announcement was made official today that Javy Vasquez is going to be skipped for his start on Friday night in Boston. This move really is troublesome to me. In my opinion 3 to 4 days off is not what ails Vasquez at this point. Not to mention, the Yankees are off to a blistering start and can afford to trot him out there every 5 days. Your paying this guy $11.5 million so obviously it is in the Yankees best interest to make this work and get Vasquez turned around. Is he really gonna get turned around by missing a start against Boston on the road than facing a better hitting team in Detroit? His best chance of getting it going is on the road anyhow so why not let him throw in Boston?

2. The offense is playing very well through the first week of May. Jeter and Cano (.321 and.371
