The spotlight is on
Hey, we’re back on the Yankees.com main page!
If you want to get All-Star votes in, today is the day. It seems pretty safe to assume that Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter are going to be in the Bronx for the Midsummer Classic, but you can still get votes in to help out secondary candidates. Jason Giambi, for one, would be a heck of a choice to hit in the Home Run Derby, especially since A-Rod won’t take part.
Tough loss for the Bombers last night, and I know you probably didn’t have the same reaction, but I couldn’t help but chuckle with the last out. A Johnny Damon broken bat? Yeah, I wouldn’t have seen that coming. What’s that now, 60? They’ll try to salvage the final game tonight with Sidney Ponson set to face his old club, the Rangers.
Think there won’t be some extra juices flowing for Sir Sidney, considering the way things went down in Texas and his return to Yankee Stadium? Luis Mendoza gets the call for the Rangers. Down at Triple-A, Shelley Duncan had his arm in a sling. Hank Steinbrenner wants the Yankees to “wake up,” and judging by the blog comments, all of you do too.
Anyone else notice Joba Chamberlain is a new pitchman for Dunkin’ Donuts? I didn’t make the connection until I went for one of those frosty cool Coolattas. Of course, Joba struck me out when I entered my code. Shocker. Next time I’m digging in against that Papelbon guy.
