Cano continues to be the only Yankee hitting worth a lick. The overall team offensive slump is now in it’s fourth week. It’s way past time for a wake-up call.

The pitching continues to amaze. Supposedly this was the big question mark on opening day, and here we are well in to the second half of the season and it’s the pitching that is keeping this team in contention. That in spite of losing three starters from the rotation, including their ace. Wow. And look at the bullpen. As if Farnsworth and Ramirez weren’t enough, David Robertson seems to be settling in after a bit of a rocky start. These guys are fun to watch!
