Welcome Back....

Just a quick one today.....

Welcome back Joe Girardi. He was always one of my favorite Yankees, and when he returned to the bench last year, I hoped it was for good. I still dream that one day he'll be Yankee manager. The Marlins are the best team in baseball over the last month or so. Congrats Joe.

Welcome back Andy Phillips. After being banished to the bench during the road trip in NL ballparks, A-Phil went 3-4 today and should get plenty of face time at the Stadium. In the end, he may just be more important than Melky.

Welcome back Chien Ming Wang. Not that he really went anywhere, but he could easily have let the 9th inning loss the other day stick in his head and snowball into something negative. Nah....actually he couldn't have done that. It's not in him. He's ice cold and ready to take the ball everytime out. To quote Method Man and Redman, "He's a KILLAAAAAH!!!!"

On note from Columbus: Erubial Durazo is currently batting .304/.410/.471 in 16 games with a couple of homers, 9 RBIs, and heating up by the day. See you soon big fellah.

That's it today. More tomorrow. Go Yanks.
