Open Thread: Game 115-Yanks vs Rangers

We need Mike Mussina to pitch deep into the game no matter how many pitches he throws. Boston's offense has been on fire during their latest streak and we can only hope that Chicago slows them down in the next two games. We can't fall much further behind if we have any chance of over taking the Red Sox.

I thought I would never say this, but losing Sierra has been a major blow to the offense. Batters 7-9 have been pretty useless and who would have "thunk" that the "village idiot" would have ever been missed. We do have the worse bench money can buy.
