Good morning Fackers. It was a nice, long holiday weekend that saw the Yanks go 3-0 (we won't count Thursday night as part of the weekend). Now you're back at work; ain't that a kick in the junk?
Well let's start the week off with some good news. Give yourselves a pat on the back. The All-Star rosters were announced yesterday, and our call to action last week was successful. Mark Teixeira overcame a last day deficit to overtake our friend Youk as the starting first baseman. Youkilis still made the team as a reserve, and deservedly so.
Congratulations are also in order for Derek Jeter, who was the leading AL vote getter for the first time in his career. It will be the tenth All-Star appearance for the Captain, as it will be for the wonder that is Mo.
It's Getaway Day Matinee Monday. Back with the preview shortly.
