Chase Whitley. Two months ago, very few people knew of his existence. Now he has become the second or third best pitcher in the Yankees rotation. Since he debut against the Mets, Whitley has continued to impress start after start, now giving the Yankees seven plus innings pitched in his last two outings. Only time will tell if this continues, but stories like "The Tale of Chase Whitley" are why baseball is the best.

The Aardvark's say farewell to Safeco Field, after watching two brilliant pitching performances in a row from Tanaka and Whitley. After a dozen cups of coffee each, they have crunched the numbers and found a winner from yesterday's DP thread. That winner is famed PSA "Girardi's Challenger" artist Lilly, who won with a whopping 5,000 points. Her faith in Ellsbury tonight is what sealed the deal. Congrats to Lilly and good luck to today's prognosticators.
