Everything about yesterday's game was positive. The Yankees beat the Mets and thus won the series, the Blue Jays lost to the Red Sox, CC Sabathia continued to pitch well, and the offense came alive after Matt Harvey was taken out. With said offensive explosion, the key pieces of our bullpen were given a nice night off as they head to Toronto to start the most important three game series of the year. With the lead over the Yankees now only 2.5 games, the Yankees have a great opportunity to make up some ground or, dare we dream, overtake the Blue Jays for first place of the AL East. That will not be an easy task, as our pitching is somewhat subject right now. Adam Warren, still not fully stretched out yet, will start tonight's game. Be that as it may, how can you not be excited for this series? This is what baseball is all about!

Dragon Slayer Dustin Ackley definitely has a nice ring to it.
We would all watch a channel devoted to Alex Rodriguez.
Carlos Beltran is awesome.

Dayum, Yankees twitter.
The Mets have now heard!
I don't think it's okay to be nervous about a ten run lead when this man takes the mound.
