Grey Skies Are Gonna Clear Up

don't live in the Bronx so I'll have to assume that dark clouds hovered over the Yankee Stadium today with all the rain. Dark clouds, a representation of the recent doom and gloom surrounding the Yankees after their 5 game losing streak. Here's a little rain to wash those troubles away. This couldn't have come at a better time. Pick whatever
Every dark cloud has its silver lining. Besides the obvious extra day's rest for the bullpen, the Yankees now have the good fortune of moving Andy Pettitte's start back to Friday. Pettitte vs. Dice-K. That works out quite nicely for us Yankee fans. This means will now have Pettitte, Wang and either Karstens or Igawa matching up against the bottom of the Red Sox rotation. I'd honestly prefer to see Igawa get that start with Karstens getting an extended visit to the bullpen. The Sox haven't seen Igawa yet and that could be a plus for the Yankees. Just keep the pitches down Kei. Keep the pitches down. Jeter, Damon and Posada get an extra day to take it easy. And did I mention the bullpen gets an extra day's rest? Much needed and much deserved. It's as if the Baseball Gods (and Mother Nature) feel our pain.
Sing it with me Yankee fans: "Grey skies are gonna clear up......"
