Top stories from last week:
- The Yankees took two of three in Detroit thanks to Phil Hughes’ return to the majors and Joba Chamberlain’s best start of the season.
- They also took two of three from the Angels, highlighted by a roller coaster ride that was the team’s best win of the year. The fourth game of the series was rained out and will be played at a later date. Thankfully the Halos will be the ones makig the cross country flight for the make up game, not the Bombers.
- The bullpen continues to be the team’s Achilles’ heel, and one reliever blamed it on a lack of defined roles.
- Alex Rodriguez returned to game action and could be back with the team ahead of schedule. Chien-Ming Wang is also working his way back.
- Xavier Nady is having an experimental procedure performed on his elbow in hopes of speeding up his return. Damaso Marte hit the DL with a weak shoulder, and Ian Kennedy will miss some time with a vasospasm that was causing him to feel numbness in his fingers.
- Some ticket prices at the New Stadium were cut in half. Now they’re just outrageous rather than absurd.
