Game 95: What do Brett Gardner and Clay Buchholz have in common?By
They both steal every chance they get! I couldn’t resist.
Last year at the break, the Yanks were 43-43, 9.5 GB of the division lead and 8 back of the Wildcard. This year heading into the break, they’ll be no worse than 50-45, 6.5 GB in the division and 6 back for the Wildcard. The season is a long ways from over folks.

On the mound, the undisputed staff ace, Andy Pettitte.
Note: The rotation after the break wil be Moose, Joba, Pettitte, Ponson Rasner … the team will wear black arm bands the rest of the season in memory of Bobby Murcer … the Futures Game is on ESPN2 right now, so grab a grab a glimpse of Jesus Montero …
