Curb Your Enthusiasm

I'm as happy about the Yankees' current six-game winning streak as the next guy, but let's not get carried away.

The Yankees ran up the victories against two of the worst teams in baseball, and even now, at their single hottest point in the season to date, they remain under .500, 9 1/2 games behind Boston and trailing several quality teams in the Wild Card race.

There is a glimmer of hope where none existed a week ago, but that's all it is. Much damage was done in April and May, and it will take more than a week of winning to undo it. Arizona will be a good test this week...winning two of three would be a very positive sign.
