Aaron" bleeping" Small

Aaron Small made easy work of the Twins today and pitched seven strong innings to lead the Yanks to a 6-3 win. He retired the last twelve batters he faced and gave the pitching staff a huge lift for the upcoming series with the Angels.

Small didn't walk a batter and only threw eighty pitches for the game as he looked like a guy who has been pitching here for years. I have been really impressed with his poise on the mound and Aaron doesn't look like a re-tread who has bounced around from team to team. He doesn't throw hard and he doesn't have great movement, but he throws strikes and forces the hitters to beat him. I think he's earned another start in the coming games.

Sheffield and Cano lead the offense as Gary had four rbi's and Cano had three hits. I've been having this battle with an A's fan ( my best friend ) who thinks Nick Swisher is the rookie of the year. We'll have to wait and see how it plays out, but Cano has been one of the most impressive rookies I've ever seen coming out of the Yankees organization.

Here's your box score.
