The Yankees finished their road trip 4-3 (or 5-3 depending how you look at it). Either way, they are four games out in the wild card and 8 games out in the division with 57 left.

Obviously, plenty of time.

Derek Jeter jammed his left shoulder when he was thrown out at the plate in the second inning. That’s why he was taken out. He, of course, said he was fine and would play on Tuesday.

A-Rod was 0 for 2 and is now 0 for 12 since No. 499. He didn’t stick around to talk about it.

Chien-Ming Wang was upset with the strike zone of Sam Holbrook. But he was pleased he minimized the damage.

If there was any question whether Kyle Farnsworth should be traded for 50 cents on the dollar, there may not be any more. He had the nerve to complain about how little he has been used lately.

“I don’t like it at all,” he said. “I didn’t come here to sit on the bench. That definitely doesn’t help.”

Johnny Damon finished with three hits, four runs scored and two RBI.

“You can forget everything that’s happened to far, that doesn’t matter. We’re trying to win games now,â€? Derek Jeter said. “From this point on, if Johnny swings the bat well, he’s going to help us out. We’re a different team when Johnny’s on base.”

Finally, here is Joe Torre:

I wanted to get some audio from some players but the clubhouse was too noisy to be worth listening to.
