Finally in First!

The Yankees are in first place! All by themselves. The last time that happened was October 1, 2006...971 days ago. No matter how long ago it was, they are on top right now and as a fan, I have to say it feels pretty good.

As I mentioned last week in one of my posts, things are clicking on all cylinders. They have 13 of their last 16 and are 14-5 since A-Rod's on May 8th. Jorge Posada was activated off the DL last night and returned to the starting lineup. It was the first time since June 22 of last year that A-Rod, Posada and Hideki Matsui were all in the same lineup. Things look to only be getting better for the Yanks.

It's still May so there really isn't any significance in being in first place now but it still feels good. After a dreadful April and all the injuries that have hit the Bombers so far this season the Yanks will take their cut at the top. The baseball season is about to get hot as the calendar turns to June and the temps start rising...the Yanks are already there and look to stay there.
