Nothing quite gets you ready to take a 6-7 hour flight to the West Coast like a heaping tall glass of blah. In this series against the Rays, the Yankees offense went from "wet sloth" to "soaring eagle" to "polar bear on a scorching hot summer's day in the zoo." Now they're heading for Anaheim. Yay.

The Aardvarks hate flying on a plane, so they decided to contact their west coast mathematicians to help them out for the next three day. Pamela & Paula Playtpus will be crunching the numbers and taking no prisoners while the Yankees are in Anaheim. Meanwhile, they are sad to announce that no one won yesterday. However it is still a woman's world in the Daily Yankees Predictions thread this month, as previous winners Blanky & Caitlin tied for the top spot. Sadly, they only tied with 1,000 points.

Well with the Yankees on the west coast for the next three days, that should give PSAers plenty of time for predictions. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on the Third Rock from the Sun in the Milky Way are never really fun to play in Anaheim. Play them there they must though. David Phelps will get the start for the Yankees tonight. Aceves just gave the Yankees 5.1 innings of three hits, no walk, five strikeouts, shutout baseball. Phelps might want to consider pitching well if he wants to keep his starter job. Oh god, look what we're discussing. These are interesting times.
