Don't worry everybody, we were able to pick up Wang's replacement and it was just in the nick of time. Sidney the Slob Ponson was signed to a minor league deal.
Oh boy, this is exciting. Not only did Sidney fail in NY already, he has a long list of other teams he failed with too. This is a big boost to the Yankees rotation.
The Yankees keep on rolling winning 6 in a row.

SS: Derek Jeter, New York Yankees, $21.6 million – He’s on pace for the worst year of his career by a long shot offensively, his defense is subpar even by his standards and he’s the third-highest-paid player in baseball. No amount of leadership can make that worth more than $20 million.
SP:Carl Pavano, New York Yankees, $11 million per year.

Roger Clemens, among other athletes, used Viagra to improve their athletic performance, according to a report in the New York Daily News.
Clemens got the pills -- which are not banned by Major League Baseball -- from a teammate and kept them in a GNC vitamin bottle in his locker, according to an anonymous source cited by the newspaper. He also reportedly told a friend that the drug made him feel flushed and made his heart race.
The newspaper also quotes BALCO founder Victor Conte as saying, "All my athletes took it," in reference to a Viagra-like drug.
The drug and its over-the-counter substitutes reportedly have numerous off-label uses. These include helping build endurance and delivering oxygen, nutrients and performance-enhancing drugs to muscles more efficiently.

The streak of .500 continues. I am not sure if the Yankees have realized that you need to be above .500 in order to get into the playoffs.
Mussina pitched a great game and even though Mo gave up another homer, he has pitched a lot lately and you can't blame him. Let's see, who can we blame?
