Waite Hoyt (pictured, left) has company, as Andy Pettitte joined him for 8th all-time on the Yankees win list (157). Melky Cabrera has a 12-game hitting streak, and he's staying in center. Jason Giambi is in town, but he might not be activated for a few days.
That gives them a little time to either deal Miguel Cairo, or reluctantly option Shelley Duncan to Scranton (which I don't think will happen). Johnny Damon is at risk to join the role player ranks, if he isn't there yet.
"He's been amazing this year,'' Damon said of Melky. Damon was probably speaking for himself when he said, "we are very fresh right now,'' and he also mentioned that "Jeter and Rodriguez are going to be doing some DH days also,'' alluding to the revolving door to come at DH.
Damon can't be happy about this. But he's on Cloud 9 compared with Farnsworth, who is about to be big-time buried by Joba Chamberlain, who should be in uniform by game time Tuesday night. Let the Joba Era begin.
