Negativity and Clemens

- If you're concerned, don't be. The Yanks are 8 1/2 out of first, which is certainly not good, but not dire like some are saying. They've been very unlucky as I noted previously, and luck will catch up with them while Boston will come back to Earth. There are 126 games to go, and it's certainly within the realm of possibility (or perhaps probability) that the Yanks win nine more games than Boston over the course of those 126 games.

- Roger Clemens is slated to make his 2007 minor league debut Friday night for the A-ball Tampa Yanks. The game will actually be broadcast on ESPN at 7 p.m. Another reason to watch is for two prospects - outfielder Jose Tabata and catcher Francisco Cervelli.
