Over their last 10 games, Jason Giambi and Johnny Damon are a combined 33-for-75 (.440). Fantasy players should take note of these facial hair trends: while eccentric chin hair has a negative effect on production (see Nick Swisher’s April stats, when he sported a blonde patch, or Scott Spiezio his entire 4th-outfielder career), wild and itchy mustache growth (see Damon, Giambi, young Mike Piazza), seems to add the right sort of swagger.

With Jon Lester’s no-hitter against the Royals Monday night, the Red Sox have now have two no-hitters in as many years by pitchers under 25. Considering the underwhelming performance of the Yankees’ young arms (Kennedy and Hughes are a combined 0-7), and his now-famous suggestion that Mike Mussina pitch more like Jamie Moyer, Hank Steinbrenner should hopefully have some interesting comments by the morning. I’ll try to keep you posted. In the meantime, congrats to Lester, and Yankee beat reporters.
And now, one more hug shot (the best part of big wins).
Interleague play begins tonight, and New York has to be grateful that someone is going to win a game — even a series — assuming the rain stops. The Yankees look to climb back over .500 and out of last place, while the Mets look to save Willie Randolph’s job. Unless they want him out, in which case they’re right on track.
