Yesterday looked like it could be a washout. Rain postponed Wednesday night’s game, and threatened to wash away Thursday afternoon as well. Instead, things held off (for the most part), and we got a scintillating day of baseball. The Yankees took both ends of the doubleheader, swept the series with the Angels, and now roll on to face the Tigers.
On the site, check out my review of last night’s AL action, and Andrew’s preview of the upcoming series with Detroit. Also, Erin opines that the Yankees would be better off with a catching tandem that includes a bat-first player, Joe argues that Nestor Cortes is on track to start the All-Star Game for the American League, and Ryan delivers the answers to this week’s mailbag.
