Yanks Sweep O's Out of Town

The Yankees keep on rollin'. Yesterday they completed a 3 game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles. The sweep gives New York another series win, their 9th in 10 tries.

With Curtis Granderson, Jorge Posada, and Mariano Rivera all sidelined due to injury for this series, the Yanks were still able to be victorious. Solid outings by CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett, and Andy Pettitte gave the Yanks little to worry about while their superstars were out of action.

Pettitte left Wednesday's game against Baltimore after 5 innings with stiffness in his left elbow. We surely hope this is not a major issue as Pettitte has been brillant in each of his outings this season.

The Yanks go and play the Boston Red Sox again and it'll be interesting, as always to see how the series pans out. Boston is reeling these days, their aces Josh Beckett and John Lackey are under-performing and the lineup is lacking the usual luster. The Yanks have issues of their own,mainly with health, but playing the Sox always brings out the best in the Bombers. It'll be interesting to watch.

C800 Asks You: If Andy Pettitte's injury turns out to be serious, what options do the Yankees have to replace him? When is A-Rod's bat going to heat up? How will this weekend's Yankee-Sox showdown play out? Share your thoughts on The Forum!
