So that's what happened in the Bronx

"We were all sleeping. That's the only thing I can say." -- Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte.

And when they woke up, they were 14 1/2 games behind the Boston Red Sox. Don't you hate it when that happens.

Actually, Pettitte was talking about the steal of home by Toronto's Aaron Hill last night that helped the Blue Jays edge the Yanks, 3-2. But certainly he could have been speaking of the entire season. Now seven games under .500, the Yankees have more wins (21) than just two other teams in the American League, Kansas City and Texas (both 19).

Roger Clemens is scheduled to join the big club in time to start Monday against the Chicago White Sox.  But the way things have gone since he announced several weeks ago he was joining New York for a pro-rated $28 million -- and how futile it all appears right now -- you have to wonder if George Steinbrenner is having buyer's remorse.
