Yankees routed the Rangers without Melky Cabrera. Gardner may leave him in the dust.

Great Night for Giambi who had a season high 6 RBI's. A-Rod added a 3 run shot and Damon had 3 hits.
On the other side of the win, Ponson was horrible. He allowed 7 Runs and Jeter continues to hit like Alvero Espinoza.
Melky has been completely atrocious lately.

Cano is looking like Wade Boggs compared to him.
Yankees drop 3rd in a row 3-2 against Texas. Pathetic
Madonna and Arod sitting in a tree?? and why is A-Rod wearing a helmet with his tux? Oh..., for protectionSubmitted by mike on Tue, 07/01/2008 - 22:23.
London's Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Ritchie — who arrived in New York from London yesterday and went straight to Madge's apartment — had agreed to divorce her. The couple has three children, and she's worth an estimated $600 million.
The magazine reported that A-Rod — who makes $28 million a year — has made numerous late-night visits to Madonna's Central Park West apartment and attended her April 30 concert in NYC. A source told the magazine that "all the doormen are talking" about the alleged affair.
She, in turn, sat in his seats at Yankee stadium at a game on June 22, the magazine reported. Also, her 7-year-old son, Rocco, was spotted wearing Yankees gear while playing in Central Park on June 25.
The two were spotted by a photo agency dining together in Santa Monica in February, and, earlier that same month, A-Rod attended a Madge-hosted fundraiser for Malawi and Unicef.
A-Rod, who's also married and has two daughters with wife Cindy, was seen in 2007 with a stripper in Toronto, Miami and Dallas.
Madonna has already contacted top divorce lawyer Fiona "Steel Magnolia" Shackleton, who handled Paul McCartney's divorce from Heather Mills. Ritchie — who directed "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" in 1998 and "Snatch" in 2000, would benefit greatly from the divorce, as it does not appear a pre-nup is in place.
The alleged affair seems to be having a positive effect on the Pinstripe swinger, who last night hit his 534th home run, tying him for 14th place on the all-time homer list.
It was rumored that Madonna had a tryst with Jose Canseco, earning him the title "Madonna's Bat Boy," but the ballplayer claimed in his book he wasn't interested in her. Source

I couldn't believe my eyes. Giambi hit a ball off of the top of the right centerfield wall. Instead of watching the ball like most hitters do, Giambi kicked it into high gear (For most people this would be low gear) and gracefully landed himself at 3rd base with a triple.
Quick Note :Giambi's last triple was in 2002.
Mussina pitched well.

Dave Robertson has been killing it in the minors. He got rewarded by getting the call to the big show.
"I just got through it," Robertson said, "and when it was done, it just kind of flew by for me. I'm not going to lie."
Robertson was called up after notching a combined 1.39 ERA for Double-A Trenton and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season, striking out 74 hitters in 51 2/3 innings.
Robertson surrendered two singles in the sixth and seventh innings, in addition to David Wright's sac fly in the sixth that scored Jose Reyes, who moved to third after a wild pitch on Robertson's first offering to Wright.
