On last night's shutdown performance by James Shields, LoHud writes:
James Shields actually has a lower ERA than Sabathia this season, and he was terrific against the Yankees less than two weeks ago in New York. It’s not like they didn’t know what was coming.
- Derek Jeter was bumped down in last night's lineup, but not far enough against a righty. He's still phenomenal against lefties, but against a righty he should bad 6th or 7th.
- Having gone 4-4 on the road trip, the Yanks now start a ten game homestand. Bring on the A's!
