Pete Abe pointed out that Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay makes the Yankees 2-9 vs. the Rays and Red Sox thus far in 2009. I'm not really alarmed by that since most of that came very early on when the Yankees weren't playing well. It sure would be nice to start reversing that trend today, though.
Let's hope Joba Chamberlain brings the kind of stuff today that he had last time out, when he had the most impressive start of his young career.
If you haven't seen it, MLB.com has started a New Yankee Stadium Homerun Watch, counting down to the MLB record 303 at Coors Field in 1999. The projected total is 297, but we haven't hit the heat of July yet.
