Neil Keefe and Sweeny Murti look at the Yankees as they return home from a 2-5 West Coast road trip with Ichiro Suzuki, but without Alex Rodriguez.
Through all the havoc the world has thrown at us the last week — earthshaking news of Mark Sanchez dating Eva Longoria, of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorcing, and, oh, how can we go on? — the Mets have continued to forge through.

The Phillies put on a 4th of July fireworks show as they blasted the Mets, 9-2.

Since trading away Jesus Montero, the Yankees need to acquire an additional DH. Hideki Matsui could fill that role and bring some clutch back to the Yankees.
C.J. Wilson may be the most talented starter on the free agent market but the Yankees should turn to other targets if his salary demands are too high.
By agreeing to an extension without opting out, CC Sabathia again demonstrated why he’ll be remembered as a beloved Yankee and not a mercenary — like Alex Rodriguez.
