Wow. If the Yankees were a person they would have a severe case of bipolar. They have now won 5 in a row outscoring their opponents 37-15 and only allowing thrree runs in the passed 3 games. That's only one more run than Sabathia and Rivera combined in RBIs for the series!
Anyway it's safe to say the Yankees are on a hot streak, especially their effective starting pitching. Excpetional starting by Sabathia and Burnett places them only 3 games behind the Sox. I think this series against the Mets just tells us how the long the season is. The Yankees could pass the Sox and pull away from them at any point. Strong pitching and great play from the Yankees youth like Gardner and Ransome can put jumpstart them into yet another hot streak.
