I am glad the Yankees have been able to gain more ground on the Rays as well as the Red Sox but they really need to improve on the hitting if they are going to be a serious threat. They left a ridiculous amount of runners on base during the A's series. Maybe getting Damon in the lineup will provide a spark but something needs to change.
As for other news, I was glad to read that Bruney has been pitching well and without pain down in the minors. It looks like Bruney, Kennedy and maybe even Hughes could be back sometime in August. I hope the Yankees keep David Robertson around and dump Hawkins when the time comes for one of them to be recalled. I like Robertson and while he isn't the second coming of Joba, he does display good poise and there is no doubt that this guy is going to stay in the bullpen since the Yankees have been playing him there since his arrival.
I was so glad that Molina was behind the plate in the 9th instead of Posada. That was a heck of a throw to end the game.
