We need to slap Tamp Bay around this year. If we go an embarrassing  8-11 against them this year like we did last year, I predict a lot of trouble getting into the playoffs.


Yanks crush Tampa 9-1. Mussina cruised in the rain, going six strong innings, stiking out seven. He leads the league in strikeouts now. Jeter cracked a first inning two run HR, and we never looked back.
