Top stories from last week:
- The Yankees headed out on their first west coast road trip of 2010, where Javy Vazquez grabbed his first win of the season at Oakland. Phil Hughes flirted with a no-hitter on Wednesday, but CC Sabathia‘s one bad inning cost the Yanks a sweep. The series also brought about a mini-controversy.
- The next series found the Yanks in Anaheim, where they dropped the opener because of a Kendry Morales’ late homer. Andy Pettitte righted the ship on Saturday, but Javy Vazquez and Damaso Marte let the rubber game get away.
- Through the early part of the season, the rotation is earning it’s money and Robbie Cano has been more selective.
- The struggling Nick Johnson will be on the shelf until Tuesday with a stiff back, and Chan Ho Park went down to Tampa to continue working his way back from a bum hamstring. Chris Garcia underwent his second Tommy John surgery.
- The Yanks signed 2008 fourth rounder Josh Romanski in a nice little minor league signing.
- Yankee Stadium, which hasn’t been much of a bandbox this season, will host the Pinstripe Bowl for the next four years.
- The team is visiting the White House today.
