The Yankees have dropped a couple of tough games and have lost a spot in the standings. But with this is a sliver lining, well kind of. First off Aj Burnett is not all washed up, besides a couple of damaging at bats by Brian Roberts AJ was effective for his second straight outing. Kerry Wood has been awesome. He has solidified the bull pen like no other and as a Yankee has an ERA less than one. Lance Berkman has made a minor adjustment to his swing which has had immediate dividends and he had three hits tonight. The bombers still lead by a game and a half and are the only team in baseball that has not lost four straight games this season. Back at one to try and hold that.
