The second week of the season went quite a bit better for the New York Yankees than the first week did. The team is holding its own in the standings despite its rag-tag offense. Other than Phil Hughes, the rotation had a good week with Andy Pettitte, C.C. Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda all pitching well. It was too bad that there were two postponements in Cleveland as the Yankees could have further enjoyed the soft underbelly of the Indians’ rotation. But otherwise, it was a good week, concluding with a series win against the rival Orioles.
Monday is an off day so the Yankees uniform manager will not have to worry about preparing all those #42 uniform numbers (unless the team wears them on Tuesday—have not heard). And then Tuesday, open a series against the Arizona Diamondbacks at the Stadium.
