Yankees 7, D-Backs 2

A few things may be falling into place:

1. One may make the case that, all at once, the Yanks have their best starting rotation since 2003, their last World Series year: Moose, Rocket and Pettitte again, all four years older, and Wang standing in for David Wells--an upgrade.

2. The offense, a definite upgrade from '03. A-Rod has come back from his mini-slump, Posada is batting .358, Jeter has been solid, Matsui is coming around.

3. The bullpen. Well, we'll see.

Don't forget to look at who the Yanks have been getting fat against? Pittsburgh, Arizona and Chicago, not the toughest of competition. But when the schedule smiles at you, you have to smile back.

And now the Mets come limping into town. Call me in August when the Yanks match up against Toronto, Boston, LA, Cleveland and Detroit twice.

This is the time to make a run at the BoSox and the wild card, but August will make or break them.
