Yankees starter Chien-Ming Wang notched his fifth win of the young season yesterday against the Tribe, while Brandon Webb grabbed win number six against the Padres. Wang, the runner up to the ’07 AL Cy Young beat the winner of the ’07 AL Cy Young C.C. Sabathia, while Webb, the ’06 NL Cy Young winner topped last year’s NL Cy Young winner Jake Peavy. Wow, a lot of Cy Young action going on yesterday…Aces are a plenty these days in the MLB.
Their hot starts bode well for my pre-season Yankees – D-Backs World Series prediction; the D-Backs are off to a 18-7 start through the first 25 games of the season, while the Yanks went 12-13 in their first 25. As soon as the Yanks can figure out their bottom of the rotation problems they will be all set to go. Losing Bruney for the season hurts the chances of moving Joba to the rotation.
