Game 81: Fireworks Explode As The Yankees Bats Hope To Once Again

New, comments

Happy 4th of July! As much as we love readers here at Pinstripe Alley, you should probably be out for the holiday rather than sitting at a computer watching the game. Also, happy birthday to George Steinbrenner! Yesterday was Brian Cashman's birthday.

The Yankees 4th of July starters since 2003 have been: David Wells, Kevin Brown, Tanyon Sturtze, Shawn Chacon, Mike Mussina, Darrell Rasner, and Chien-Ming Wang. In that span the Yankees were 3-4.

The Yankees found out that they will have Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes, and Mariano Rivera in the All-Star Game. Nick Swisher is on the final vote and for those wondering about Andy Pettitte, it is very, very likely that he replaces CC on the roster (CC pitches Sunday).
