A Lack Of Faith!

So the Yankees have been on a bit of a slide, every team will go through one of these during the course of a 162 game season, and i would much rather it come in May than in September. Losing to the Mets was no embarrasment, they are hitting the ball very well laterly and Glavine/Martinez are 2 pitchers that are deffinaterly feeling there stuff at the moment, and then losing to Boston last night was hard to take but things might be on the turn....

Gary Sheffield started a rehab assigment on Monday and straight after the game he announced himself fit and he was heading to Boston, so we could see him in the lineup to wace Wakefield and the Sox tonight, one thing is for sure the outfield of Long, Williams and Cabrera is a far cry from the opening day outfield trio of Matsui, Damon and Sheffield.

Its a strange feeling to sit down and watch the Yankees without expecting them to win, as that is what im doing at the moment, i hope that they can win but i dont expect them to, and it says something when you have more faith in your Number 5 starter over your supposed Ace, the fact that Randy Johnson has looked poor in more outings than i can remember does nothing to raise the confidence of a depleted line-up.

Anyway with Sheff back that should raise the moral around the club house, lets hope so anyway as surely George is not to happy with what he is seeing right now....

A Cool/Hot Night in Beantown for Damon

When the Yankees took the field Monday night in Boston there was no doubt where all the eyes were Fixed, Johnny Damon back in Boston but this time back as a enemy, in a Park where he has been cheered for the past few years it was no surprise that them cheers quickly turned to Boo's as the Red Sox crowd quickly made it obvious that although he had played an integrel part in bringing a World Series title to Fenway only a couple of years earlier, when your wearing a Yankee uniform you dont deserve any respect. That is not to say that he did not receive any Aplause, that he did at his first AB when he tipped his hat to his old team mates and settled in to take his first pitch as a Yankee back in Beantown. The Night was not a pleasent one for Damon, not only was he jeered everytime he came near to the ball but he also went 0-4 on the night, the crowd even went as far as to throw money at him from the Bleachers, Damon would leave Boston with the Yankees taking the Loss 7-3 on a Ortiz long 3 run shot into the Red Sox Bullepen.

Damon might not of had the best night agaisnt his former team this time but with a lot of games still to play, he still has the attributes to make the Red Sox suffer for letting him go, we will see how he does in the upcomign series at Yankee Stadium early next week.
