Andy Pettitte was absolutely dominant in the Yankees 11-2 win today. He went seven innings, allowing one run on four hits. He did not walk a hitter and retired his last 14 hitters in a row. Pettitte’s record moves to 7-1 while carrying a minuscule 2.48 ERA. Alex Rodriguez provided the offense with a 7th inning grand slam and finished with six total RBIs. Every Yankee starter had at least one hit as the Yankees won this series, three games to one.

For as long as I can remember, Memorial Day has been about two vital things in American culture:

Our Armed Forces and Baseball.

We take this day to remember and thank all of our fellow Americans who have given their lives in order protect our freedoms. In honor of our American heroes, baseball tournaments are held all over of America. After playing in these tournaments for last 12 years, I know that the veterans flock to these games and love every minute of the action. In addition to amateur action, Major League Baseball also contributes on this holiday. Proceeds from the hat pictured below go to benefit the Welcome Back Veterans Fund.

Not only will you look cool, but you will support the Veterans!

In addition to the hat, Major League Baseball distributes tickets and honors various units around the country. We can’t ever repay them for the service that they’ve given us, but make sure you take the time to say thank you to each and every veteran or serviceman or servicewoman that you run in to today.  I know they’ll appreciate it.

Happy Memorial Day

Typically, baseball fans as well as baseball “experts” will tell you that Memorial Day is the first time you can take a step back, see where your team stands, and ask yourself questions about where they’re going from here.

-Are they contenders?

-Can they realistically continue playing the way they are (or is their reason to believe their play will improve)?

-Will they be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline

The baseball season is really flying by. It’s already Memorial Day and we’ve been playing for eight weeks! In the AL, Justin Morneau and Robinson Cano are off to flying starts. Ubaldo Jiminez armed with his 0.88 ERA and 97 MPH fastball, has been the best pitcher in the NL.

So after this past week, who could be joining these three in fantasy stardom?
