*SPANKING THE SOX*

   – *WHAT’S GOING ON TOMARROW?*

Joba Chamberlain (8-4) vs. Freddy Garcia (0-1)


   – *A TOTAL BLOWOUT*

   And to think – the skeptics were concerned about Mitre on the hill…

   A day after the world witnessed New York’s 12th walkoff of the season, Yankee fans got a glimpse of what games look like when they’re not close at all. In a display of heroics, Sergio Mitre took the mound and held the White Sox to one single hit over a 6.1 inning span. Chad Gaudin was given the daunting task of keeping that number in tact – and for the 2.2 innings he showed his face today, he did just that.

SERGIO MITRE: 6.1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 SO

   – *DAILY DOUBLES*

   Talk about repetative hitting… Robinson Cano, Jerry Hairston Jr, Johnny Damon, and Hideki Matsui all had individual doubles off of Jose Contreras in this one…

   – *RUNS BATTED IN-SANE*

   The Yankees also combined for an impressive 10 RBI’s on 14 hits…

    J.Quist: I believed in Mitre. I was thrilled at the way he pitched. He was superb. Now he belongs. Not just to me, but to other Yankee fans. How great for him. I hope his arm is ok. That looked pretty painful. I hope Joba is at least half as good as Sergio today!
    Thanks for emailing me 🙂

    I’m not ready to join the Mitre fan club, but I was very impressed with him yesterday. Now I’m turning my attention to that other problem child: Joba. Will he be good in his three or so innings today? Will we burn the bullpen? Or will this latest experiment go really well? (Fingers crossed for Door #3, obviously.)

    Mitre definitely impressed me yesterday. Now whether he’s capable of pulling in starts like that all the time or if it was a function of the White Sox being so bloody awful, we’ll find out in his next start. It’s a little too early to judge whether or not he’s “turned the corner”, but it was promising.

    We got our sweep of the White Sox! Yay. But Joba pitching 3 innings was bizarre. They weren’t even a good 3 innings! Let’s hope we continue our winning ways in Baltimore tonight. With the Red Sox playing well, we can’t afford to lose right now.
