Top stories from last week:
- After a brutally long four day layoff for the All Star Break, the Yankees started the second half with a bang. Mark Teixeira‘s late inning three run homer gave the team a win on Friday, then CC Sabathia outlasted Justin Verlander in a classic pitcher’s duel on Saturday. Joba Chamberlain followed that up with his best performance in nearly two months to complete the sweep yesterday.
- Sergio Mitre was officially named the fifth starter, but the move will probably be temporary because Chien-Ming Wang is ready to start a throwing program. Damaso Marte also started a rehab assignment.
- We polled the RABiverse, and Mariano Rivera‘s bases loaded walk was voted as your favorite moment of the first half. The Yankees launched an official fan club called the Yankees Universe.
