I'm posting this too late to put game notes, as the Yankees are already up 2-0 on a double play by Tex and a home run by A-Rod.

UPDATE 7:29: Despite what he might say publicly, I think Reggie Jackson is probably pissed off, because I sure would be. Guys like him and Hank Aaron are being passed by guys who used illegal substances to enhance their performance.

UPDATE 7:48: Hey! Who's this guy and what has he done with Alex Rodriguez?

UPDATE 8:09: Now Michael Kay is commenting on how the bat boy does his job. It's only the 3rd inning and he's reaching for stuff to talk about.

UPDATE 8:13: My man Jonny Flynn (from Syracuse) just got picked 6th by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA Draft.

UPDATE 8:39: The Yankees are piling it on here as Ransom shoots one into the gap to make it 8-1. And as of 2 minutes ago, MKS is now on Facebook, become a fan today.

UPDATE 9:02: So much for this being a blowout. Pettitte out.

UPDATE 9:47: This is John taking over. Unlike Jim, I probably won't write anything about the NBA draft in my updates because I am sure nobody from Quinnipiac will be drafted. Anyway, even though the Yankees are winning this game is pathetic. Up 8-1 you'd expect Pettitte to go at least 7, eat up some innings, and semi-rest the bullpen. Instead Aceves pitched, who you might need tommorow if Sabathia's arm is bothering him, and now Coke, Bruney, and probably Rivera if it stays at 8-6.

UPDATE 9:58: 2-run single for A-Rod. I guess those 2 days of rest are finally showing. He's now 3-4 with 4 RBIs.

UPDATE 10:09: Web Gem nominee for Mark Teixeira right there. I wonder how many hits/errors Teixeira has saved compared to Giambi last year? It seems like every other day Tex impresses with a nice defensive play.

UPDATE 10:50: I have the game recap all finished but David Robertson refuses to let this game end. He gave up a monster shot to McCann now an Anderson single. If Mo has to come into this game that would be very disapointing.

UPDATE 10:54: This is ridiculous. Robertson can't get the last out and now it is a save situation. 1 out to go with Mo coming in. First and second 2 outs, this game better end soon.
