To me, the Yankees had their best pitcher on the mound yesterday. Sorry C.C., you just don't have it this season. Now the question is, is it time to start chasing down his rookie cards? He had an incredible rookie season winning double digit games and now if off to a hot and fast start.
Another surprise in yesterday's 6-2 win over the Sox, was the surprising 2 home run game by Eric Chavez. He showed some of his old likeness when he was an all-star third baseman with the A's.
I don't know how the Yankees will fare for the rest of the season. I see their pitching as a definite weak point. Freddy Garcia reminds me of Kevin Brown, past his prime. C.C. Sabathia doesn't look the same. And the rest of the staff besides Nova have not pitched well. I am sure as the season progresses they will get better. If not, the Yank's will most likely make a move for a pitcher at the Trade Deadline. The offense is as powerful as always and Jeter is off to a good start.
But despite how rest of the season goes... yesterday's win, was a great one.
