Are the Yankees finally back?

Who knows, but from the way that they have been playing the past couple of days, maybe Joe Girardi might still have his job for a few more days.

LOL! 

With great performances from A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettite, the Yanks could have some much needed confidence after two lackluster performances to start the season.

Hopefully these wins will be just the momentum, and confidence, builders that New York needs to capitalize on all that talent they have.
