    I like the matchups. But those series seem to be the ones we struggle with

    They keep talking about the temp and storm coming to Texas but I always assumed they had a roof on the stadium. Do they not? Seems wierd that they wouldn't...Houston and AZ both do.

    The temps are out of control down. 106 degress is unbearable.

    On paper, we win at LEAST 3 of 4.

    On paper, we should have lost 2 of 3 to the Sox and win 2 of 3 from the Orioles.

    A sweep really sends a message here.

    I live 20 minutes from the stadium.. No roof, very little shade. It is freakin hot out here right now. I was going to go to a game, but I can't stand sitting out there for 3+ hours. At 9 at night it is still 95 degrees. Heat index yesterday hit 117.

    Pity the catchers. Any starter that goes over 6 innings is a horse.

    Andy loves pitching in the Texas heat, I expect him to have a big game, and Joba did pretty well 2 starts ago when it was really really hot during a day game.

    It's worse here not than it was then. It is a legit 105 with a lot of humidity. Pitchers can pitch well, but they aren't going out there for 8-9 innings. Hey, if either of them does, great, but IMO the bullpen is going to work a bit the next 4 days.

    Plus, there is also the factor of the Rangers, they can hit a bit as well, so the pitchers will be working out there while it's hot. Don't get me wrong, I think the Yanks take 3 of 4, but it will be tough on the starters. Will be 98-99 degrees at the start of tonights game. It was 97 at 10 PM last night.

    If it doesn't cool off, Ponson may actually have a heart attack in the second inning of his start.

    Seems like Pudge called a fine game with Ponson. He's fine there, and Joba has never had a problem shaking off a catcher. For a rookie, he seems to have a good idea what he wants to do - and sometimes goes to the slider instead of the fastball too much, so maybe Pudge will help him there.

    The upcoming stretch of games is very tough. Rangers, Angels & Twins. 3 very scary teams to play.

    On and off the field, He's yet to have a bad interview and I'm sure you all heard Kay talking about him at Old Timers day.
