Heading into this weekend, the Yankees had a losing record. Coming out of this weekend, the Yankees are a .500 team. To have a winning record by the end of the week, they will have to play well against the two hottest teams in baseball right now; the Detroit Tigers and the New York Mets. This is what baseball is all about, ladies and gentlemen. Sometimes it's fun to be the underdog in these situations.

GIF of the Day
Yankee fans were hoping for a sweep today. Hope is a good thing.
John Ryan Murphy, the Oil Tycoon, has a pretty good arm behind the plate. Good pitch framing as well.
A sweeping victory was enjoyed by all!
