Already miss seeing your beloved Yankees on T.V.? Well, tonight at 11:35 eastern 3 of the core 4 (Jeter, Po and Pettitte) can be seen on the David Letterman show tonight.
You don't even wanna know how many of the staff members have had sex with Jeter.

This was Wang's best start of the season; he gave up 5 runs. However they are going to keep the Wanger in the rotation, he will face the Sox on Thursday. Wang said: “I can do better”, I sure do hope so. You can't just keep switching the rotation around so hopefully this will get things back to normal. So with Wang back in the rotation we have to make room so we are sending Hughes to the pen.
Joe had this to say:
"I thought he pitched better than his numbers indicated, I'm not making excuses, I was happy with what I saw. I know people are going to say, 'Oh boy, he gave up five runs."
As you can see the Yankees mounted a great comeback.
Melky's two-run home run in the eighth inning, his fifth go-ahead hit in the eighth inning or later this season, gave the Yankees their sixth win in their last eight games.
I was at this game, by the way. Very exciting..
A cool fact: A home run has been hit in all 26 games at the New Stadium

After a game filled with fist-pumps and home runs the Yankees prevail over the O's in a 5-3 victory. Coming up later tonight is a mother's day tribute to all of the Yankee wives (especially the hot ones).

Major League Baseball is expected to announce Thursday that Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez has tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs and will be suspended for 50 games, The Los Angeles Times is reporting.
UPDATE: Yahoo says that Manny tested positive for a sexual enhancer. Manny did not test positive for a steroid or human growth hormone.
Ramirez's suspension is expected to be announced Thursday, The Times said.
Triple-A outfielder Xavier Paul has been told by the Dodgers that he will be promoted later today, according to The Times.
In his first full season as a Dodger, Ramirez is batting .348 with six home runs and 20 RBIs. Los Angeles has bolted to a 21-8 record -- best in the majors -- and a 13-0 record at home that set the modern major league record for home winning streak to start a season.

The Yankees came back to win today in a thriller vs the Halos. The Yankees started off the game hot, scoring 4 in the first inning. Swisher was then hit by a pitch in the same inning which cooled off the Yanks (pictured above). The x-rays came back negative (good thing) so he is day to day for now. From there the Angles then went on to score in the 6th and 7th due to Peittitte being left in and Veras. The Yankees then staged a comeback based in the 8th and 9th innings. Scoring 4 in the 8th to bring the game to within one run. The Yankees headed into the 9th and delivered. Fuentes loaded up the bases with no outs and Posada hit the game winner to left. This was almost the toughest loss of the year but then blossomed into a gritty win.

After a two long painful losses the Red Sox swept the series today in a 4-1 win over the bombers. In other the games the losses were mostly a product of the bullpen. Today however a lack of run support cost us the game. When Brett Gardner drives in your only run you know you're in trouble. The Red Sox had a big 5th inning and the Yankees could not answer. Pettitte pitched well and seemed to be the bearer of bad luck. 2 errors by Angel Berrora caused the 5th inning to unravel into a disaster. Cano's face says it all (right). The bottom line is that Yankees deserved to lose. With a grand total of 35 runners left on base in the series. It's the worst to be swept by Boston but we have to move on and focus on the upcoming series with the Tigers.
An interesting side note: Jeter tied Mickey Mantle for the Yankees record of 8,102 career at bats when he struck out in the 7th.

This was the toughest loss all year. The Yankees should have won this game you can blame it on anything; the blunders of Cano and Girardi are just examples. It seems that the Yankees shoul
d have put this game away innings ago. Burney was not seen in the bullpen and there are whisperings that he went back to New York for an MRI. Joba's start should be categorized. as "lucky", he was a wizard with the ground balls (right). It seems the Yankees just scraped by with Joba on the mound. Then the 'pen took over and we should have given them some cushion leaving 15 runners stranded. However we can still take 2/3 from the Sox and I am confident with A.J. taking the mound tomorrow. It will be hard to get the taste of today's hard loss out of our mouths.
Update 11:56: Pete Abe confirms that Burney has been sent back for an MRI. Also Wang was placed on the DL and so was Cody Ransom after a sliding injury (quad).

Swisher may have been New York's most effective pitcher. After giving up a walk and Tampa Bay's 17th hit, he struck out Gabe Kapler and got Pena and Pat Burrell to fly out.
"I had fun with it. When am I ever going to have a chance to do that again? Probably never," said Swisher, who hadn't pitched in a game since he was a freshman in high school. "We know we didn't play very well. Got to find something to laugh about in that moment. I just happened to be the guy." sourceFrom Swisher's Twitter:
My arm is killing me! hahahahahaSwish is my Homeboy.
