May 7 @ Texas W 8-5

Oh Tanyon Sturtze. Sturtze's appearance tonight was a great thing for the Yankees. He came in to an easy situation, struggled, looked stupid, and the Yankees came out without significant damage after Scott Proctor saved him. Hopefully Joe Torre's mind is changed (he certainly looked pissed off during the game).

Good win. Good series. We swept a 1st place team in their ballpark. Matsui and Arod broke out of their slumps (though the previously hot trio of Jeter, Giambi, and Damon are batting under .200 this month) and our starting pitching looked excellent. All despite Gary Sheffield's injury (which may send him to the DL it turns out).

We're going to roll into the Boston series now. We're back home, our best pitchers will be on the hill, and we're on a big streak. Sheffield has an off day to rest his wrist.

Amount remaining on Joe Torre's contract: 12,083,333 dollars
