The hitting is picking up throughout the lineup. Damon seems to be quickly getting back to where he was before he kissed the wall back on July 4th and went on the DL. And although Nady is still looking for his first hit as a Yankee, surely he’s going to be a significant upgrade in left field.

About all you can ask of the pitching right now is to just keep on keepin’ on. Ponson and Rassner are the obvious weak spots in the rotation, but surely Cashman is going to remedy that situation in the next couple of days. And Hawkins is now gone, so the bullpen is rock solid. Farnsworth hasn’t pitched but 2 1/3 innings in the last 10 games — hopefully that’s not an issue.

With a 4-game series coming up with Los Angeles, who has the best record in the AL right now, it’s important to take care of business in this series against the last place Orioles.
