As a Yankee fan, I take a lot of heat for George Steinbrenner's occasional irrational acts, but I also know that each season he is going to do whatever is within his power to put a competitive team on the field in the best division in baseball. Gary Ward, signed as a free agent, and Charles Hudson, acquired in a trade, have helped the Yankees compile the best record in baseball, as of this writing. Now let's turn to the Dodgers. Last year, while the club faltered, the Dodger propaganda machine churned out 5 million excuses, while 3 million lemmings made their pilgrimage to Dodger Stadium.

The New York Yankees' Charles Hudson, who opened the season with six victories, was optioned to Columbus of the Triple-A International League Saturday. The Yankees called up Bob Tewsksbury from Columbus to replace Hudson. Tewskbury joined the club Saturday and is scheduled to start in Hudson's place today against the Boston Red Sox. Hudson (7-2) pitched three innings of one-hit relief Friday night to earn the victory in the Yankees' 13-inning 10-5 win over the Boston Red Sox.
