A big win

  A great win for the Yankees. The bullpen got a rest and the bats were on fire. It is troublesome to see so many baserunning mistakes. Hope it doesn't cost a game later. The umpiring was the worst. How could Iowa resident McClelland call out the runner for tagging up too early when the replays showed he wasn't even looking at the runner. What a joke. I hope the manager figures out that when he sends Gardner to pinch-run, everybody knows he is going to steal a base. Mix it up a little, Joe.

  I was wrong about Burnett and Pettite needing to pitch on 3 days rest. The off day today means that only Sabathia would have to pitch on 3 days rest again. He was worth every penny in this game.
