Now that's the Roger

We were hoping to get: eight innings, one run. Bring in Mo for one inning and there's your ballgame. Win number 350 for the Rocket, who became the first to win that many since Warren Spahn in 1963!

Arod left after straining his hammy trying to beat out a double-play grounder (which he did). He could be out a few days or a few weeks. A few weeks without Arod will effectively end the Yanks season unless the impossible happens, i.e. Cano, Abreu and Matsui step up their offensive games.

- Edwar Ramirez was finally called up from Triple-A Scranton where he was dominating: 26.2 ip, 47 Ks, 9 BBs, .67 era. He's been with the big team for two days but hasn't pitched yet. I can't wait to see his ML debut and see if his stuff translates to the majors. I believe it will - just the fact that he throws strikes makes him a better option than many of the other relievers.
