I don’t hear many complaints right now coming from Yankee fans, but I take that a step further. I’m absolutely giddy about where this team is right now, considering what they’ve had to deal with.
Think about it. The Yanks are 9-6. CC has been so-so (pun intended). Alex Rodriguez is still out and his [...]
