Yankees 5, Mariners 1

It is clear at this point that the Yanks' fortunes depend upon Wang starting every fifth day, Joba and Mo at the back end of the bullpen, and whatever production can be mustered by Matsui, Jeter, Damon and Melky.

It is the team's great good fortune that no one seems capable of running away with either the division or the Wild Card. A good half-dozen teams seem capable of clustering in the 88- to 95-win coterie.

The task, then, is to hang on like hell until A-Rod, then Georgie, are well.

Agree. I realize they can't pitch every night but, if a starter can give 6 innings, Farnsworth, Joba and Mo are proving capable of finishing. Of course, Farnsworth will give up a HR every third time out.

BTW, took in the Astros Dbacks game the other night. Astros aren't bad. Didn't realize Cecil Cooper was manager.
