As voted by PA readers a couple of weeks ago, the Least Valuable Yankee in 2007, Kei Igawa, returns to the big leagues and will get this team back on track with a Cy Young-like performance tonight against the Giants.  Okay, probably not.

The PA oddsmakers have returned and set the over/under on Igawa's walk total at 2.5.

Pete Abraham reports that Johnny Damon has been shutdown until Tuesday and the team will then decide whether to place him on the DL or not.  This is really getting old and doesn't help the club at all.

Sean Henn has been sent back down to Scranton as a result of Igawa's call-up.
