Is it me or am I simply just ahead of the curve, perhaps I am clairvoyant , or perhaps my obsession with the New York Yankees is so deep that my ability to see into the future only applies to the Bronx Bombers. Well last week I posted that the Yankees “CORE 4” all deserve to be in enshrined in THE HALL OF FAME in Cooperstown , NY.

Now  its looks like the good folks at Sports Illustrated have taken a cue from Matthews World and put the “CORE 4” on the next cover!!

World Series Rings, The White House..now the cover of SI!!

Who deserves it more than they do. The Yanks are in Baltimore these next few days , after their small pit stop at the White House yesterday. Hopefully they can tackle the birds with a sweep.  Not a bad week for these guys!

The Yankees did it again tonight. This was a close pitchers duel, but Phil Hughes was basically un-hittable. Hughes is the second Yankee starter in less than a week to flirt with a No-No. 10 Strikeouts to boot. He gave up one hit over almost 8 complete and he was simply nasty.

But other than the starting pitching clinic , I just like the way this team is grinding. They went into the 9th we a 2-1 lead, almost no margin for error for the bottom of the 9th and Brett Gardner gets an RBI single for the insurance run with Granderson scoring.

And Mariano Rivera is robotic again, one hit batter and one base hit, no biggie. Ice in his veins.

I am starting to think that Steve Jobs actually built Mariano Rivera.

The offensive prowess of this 2010 Yankee squad has never been in question, but when your # 5 starters throws a 1 hitter on the road against a potential playoff contender, things are starting to feel good.
