The Yanks look to bounce back tonight against Curt Schilling after a dismal performance against a mediocre Julian Tavarez.  I'll never understand why this offense can get so befuddled against these chumps.

Andy Pettitte has been outstanding all season and it's downright criminal that he only has 2 victories.  This guy deserves better.

In the "Hughes Rehab Update" segment, according to LoHud, Phil Hughes took the next step in his rehab program and threw 35-pitches off a full mound in Tampa with no reported problems.  He will repeat the same process on Friday and Saturday.

The featured graphic for today is the road grey jersey for the Boston Red Sox used from 1979 to 1989.  The very same jersey worn by Bill Buckner and his teammates during the meltdown at Shea in the 1986 World Series.
