; ;I don't think anyone expected that! ;How about 8 shutout innings in a small ball park against the defending World Series Champion Phillies! ;And it was the real line-up too: ;Rollins, Victorino, Utley, Howard, Werth, Ibanez. ;How many all-stars and/or MVP's are in that batting order? ;Penny looked comfortable, and was surprisingly NOT rusty at all, throwing an easy 94 MPH as late as the 8th-inning. ;His last start for Boston was August 21st when he allowed 8 earned runs to the Yankees in just four innings of work. ;Wednesday, it was some timely double plays, good defense, and plenty of composure from a 10-year vet. ;This was A BIT of an upgrade over Joe Martinez and Ryan Sadowski. ;(By the way, sorry to see the team designate the "Big Sadowski" for assignment - we barely knew you.
The New York Yankees have cruised through the 2009 baseball regular season, destroying teams with their 9 slugger deep line-up that includes not one player having a bad year. While every hitter is having varying degrees of success, not one man in that line-up is performing below their norms (save for mighty A-Rod, who's injury has slowed him down a bit to the tune of only ;26 homers and 80+ RBI's). The bullpen has also been stellar, with Mariano Rivera looking as spry as he did in 1996, and with Phil Hughes redefining his 2009 season in the ilk of that very same roie Rivera held in '96- the gutsy set-up man that becomes a dominating extension of the closer. The defense has improved mightily too, especially around the infield, where Derek Jeter has revived his defensive career by extending his lateral range and improving his arm strength. Robinson Cano has looked interested for the first time in the field since his rookie season and Mark Texeira has done wonders for everyone, displaying why he is considered a defensive elite (you can tell Don Mattingly was his favorite player growing up, his range and glove work ;are superb). ;

I've been wearing titanium ION necklaces on and off for as long as I have seen them on Big League Players... maybe because I am still looking for an edge... another habit that players pick up and old players remember. Does it work... is it good? I think so, but frankly, I have no medical background and offer no medical advise. We assume common sense in purchases. baseballtips.com
