Back from home, back on the beat

get-attachmentaspx.jpgJust got home from spending a few days with my family. My nephew Jason turned 2 on Tuesday and he seemed to have a blast. He got some drums, a Tonka truck, assorted other toys and a new swingset, so life is good for the J-Man.

That’s him in the photo. He’s the best.

Then on Wednesday I went to Plimouth Plantation with my niece, Leah. She’s going to be 7 in a few weeks and in my unbiased opinion is the smartest soon-to-be second grader ever.

As for those Yankees, here are a few stats that caught my eye:

Upward trends
Hideki Matsui: 6-game hit streak (8 of 22) with three homers and 7 RBI.

Robinson Cano: 10 of his last 26 with three homers and 7 RBI

Melky Cabrera: 8-game hit streak, 15 of 37.

Andy Phillips: 6-game hit streak, 10 of 22

Ron Villone: 9.1 1 0 0 1 6 over last seven outings

Sparky Proctor: 6 1 0 0 2 7 over last five outings.

Downward trends
Andy Petttitte: 6.2 19 16 15 1 6 last two outings

Johnny Damon: One extra-base hit and one RBI since June 26.

Wil Nieves: 53 plate appearances for the season, he’s been on base 8 times.

Finally two links of interest for you:

Brian Bruney visited some kids at a camp and we here at the blog applaud such good deeds.

I also received an e-mail from The Museum of the City of New York about their exhibition The Glory Days: New York Baseball 1947-1957.

It looks like a very worthwhile exhibition and I plan to check it out myself when I get a chance.

Headed down to Tampa this morning. I’ll blog at you from the Trop later on.
