- Yankees 7 Arizona 2: It took 60-something games, but the Yankees are finally playing like everyone thought they would from the beginning. A punishing lineup and solid starting pitching have finally shown up at the same time and the result is an eight-game winning streak.
Wednesday, it was Mike Mussina’s turn on the mound and he provided his best game of the year. Moose threw over 100 pitches and made it into the eighth, striking out seven and walking none. While Mussina kept the Diamondbacks off the scoreboard, Alex Rodriguez was continuing his amazing season. A-Rod belted his 25th home run of the year and he wasn’t alone in the power department as Posada and Matsui also went deep.
Meanwhile, off the field, Bud Selig is reportedly going to suspend Jason Giambi if he doesn’t cooperate with the Mitchell investigation. While it is nice that baseball is willing to finally investigate steroids, is punishing the only guy who has been remotely honest about things, if he doesn’t want to name names, the right way to proceed?
