What more could you ask for on this beautiful July 4 holiday? Derek Jeter returns from the disabled list to continue his pursuit of 3,000 hits, the Yankees have won seven of their last eight games, and they hold a 1.5 game lead over the Red Sox.
Oh, and in case you missed it, six Yankees made the All-Star team, four of whom will start. CC Sabathia (11-4, 3.05 ERA) did not make the team, however, because he’s scheduled to start two days before the All-Star Game. (If you ask me, CC should at least be recognized as an All-Star.)
Anyway, enjoy your holiday, catch some fireworks and watch the Yankees face the Indians at 6:35 p.m.
New poll: What should the Yankees pursue at the trade deadline?
