    I don't know about ya'll but to me it looked like Dice-K had an okay outing, and just got lucky getting the win because the offense did extremely good.

    Hmmm.... 6 runs over 7 innings, all while the Yanks were missing two of their big guns in Posada and Matsui. I thought he was underwhelming. The guy is good, but there is a distinct difference in his quality with people on base. I'm real curious to see how he's doing come July and August when the bats, and the weather heat up. He's got terrific stuff though.

    He's gotten squeezed consistently throughout his first four starts and has had key non-called third strikes come back to bite him.

    Once the umps get to know him and his pitches better, he should get some calls.

    On a somewhat related note, Bobby Abreu is now my most hated Yankee. I hate this guy and I hate how the refs assume his eye is better than their own. If only the umps had the seeds to ring him up more often, but he gets calls based on the perception that he has some of the best plate discipline in the league.

    I know right he can't be my most hated player though, because I have a lot that are tied for first on that list, so he will add to the tie.
