Pinstripes Cap Sweep of Blue Jays

By Stephen Jones

The pinstripes completed a three-game sweep
Of feather-flustered Toronto.
They extended their home winning streak
To 16 against you-know-who.

The irony so far this season?
The Yankees have done it with running,
Not their trademark long-ball slugging.
Toronto still may lead the division…

But is Toronto’s lead all bluster?
Right now, New York has its number.

    Too bad this came into my inbox just after the Jays took 2 out of the 3 games at Rogers Centre….but there will be plenty of other opportunities to clip their wings.
