Climbing Up the Standings

The Yankees are in 2nd place in the AL East and are only 2.5 games behind the Rays. The Yanks are riding a 4 game winning streak. Things are looking up for the Yankees once more. Jorge and Curtis are back and the only player who they are missing still is Nick Johnson but he will be gone for a while (August at least). Anyway the Rays move on to play the Rangers tomorrow while we finish up against Baltimore. As for the Yankees chances in the final game against the Orioles I wouldn't go to my favorite sportsbook and bet against them. The Yankees could very well move into first place after this weekend. Boston is starting to heat up as well, also winning 4 in a row.

As you all most likely saw on ESPN the blown call by the ump which cost a perfect game. This will further the rally for instant replay and Gallaraga's perfect game should be acknowledged by the MLB. However Selig says Major League Baseball will look at expanded replay and umpiring, but not the botched call Wednesday night. They should reverse the call and give the kid what he earned.
