June 18:

Yanks sweep gNats, after sweeping Braves and Mets - all good NL East teams.  Starters have been tremendous, going deep into games and not allowing runs.  You can't be much hotter over 4 weeks.

Last 24:  20-4

And they are still due, as the hitting w/Risp hasn't kicked in yet, still 40 points under the basic batting average, and it *will* climb as with all teams that number circles nearer the BA.  The streak hasn't included a few of those typical games with double digit outbursts. The games with the gNats were close - no laughers.

Sunday All AL East teams beat their NL opponents - O's, Rays, Jays and NY won.  Tough division.

Josh Beckett (right shoulder inflammation) going on the 15-day disabled list.  ouch
