May 10th vs. The Mariners
Tonight's victory is a big one. Whenever you have a winning streak and then have Brown or Wang pitching, and they can win and keep it going - so that one of the Cash Money Brothers in the rotation can get a turn at keeping it going, that's a clutch win.
Wang is starting to remind me of Ramiro Mendoza, if 'Doza had been a good starting pitcher. Keeping it down, moving it, pitching to contact.
Think Tino is locked in?
I've read some Internet reports tonight that said Giambi could be headed to the minors. But, in the YES post-game, Joe said he's taking Giambi on the road trip and that Jason thinks he's close to coming out if it. I'm sticking with my June 15th deadline mentioned earlier today.

Good effort on this blog.
Tino has put the team on his back for the climb to .500.
Agreed about Wang, Jim Kaat said last night (God Bless In-Demand MLB Package, BTW) that his key inning was after the 5 run burst...he had the discipline and focus to not issue any walks or give up any HRs.
