Javier Vazquez's return to New York brings with it a certain amount of intrigue. But it also underscores this point: The Yankees again will be the team to beat in 2010. Good teams start with good starting pitching. And after trading for Vazquez and re-signing Andy Pettitte , the Yankees have more of it than any American League team. The group of CC Sabathia , A.J. Burnett , Pettitte and Vazquez matches up with the Giants' top-heavy rotation led by Tim Lincecum , which last season held hitters to a .234 average and struck out 8.2 per nine innings.

A recap of the Orioles' 6-1 loss to the White Sox yesterday: KONERKO GOUGES GUTHRIE Jeremy Guthrie maintained that he had pretty good command yesterday, but he would certainly like to have back two pitches to White Sox cleanup hitter Paul Konerko. Guthrie's 3-2 pitch to Konerko in the second inning was hammered into the left-field seats to give Chicago a 1-0 lead. Then, in a tie game in the sixth, Konerko unloaded on Guthrie's 0-2 belt-high fastball, again homering to left. Guthrie has faced the White Sox twice this season and given up two homers in each game.

CHICAGO -- As Jeff Conine's line drive off Chicago White Sox closer Bobby Jenks traveled tantalizingly through the air toward the center-field wall, the Orioles were optimistic that they were about to witness a game-tying, three-run homer. But the ball bounced off the base of the wall just under the 400-foot mark, meaning only one runner - Melvin Mora, who beat the relay home only because Chicago catcher A.J. Pierzynski couldn't handle the throw - scored and the Orioles trailed by two runs.

Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo surveyed the scene in the ninth inning Friday night at Camden Yards - a two-run lead and his closer Chris Ray on the mound to protect what promised to be Erik Bedard's eighth straight win - and felt his team was in great shape. Even after Ray gave up two straight singles to Chicago White Sox pinch hitters to lead off the inning and Perlozzo ordered a one-out intentional walk to slugger Jim Thome to load the bases, the Orioles' manager was confident. However, what would have been a feel-good win turned into an excruciating loss when unheralded Ross Gload, in the game only because Chicago slugger Paul Konerko fouled a ball off his shin in the fifth inning, sent Ray's full-count pitch over the left-field wall to hand the White Sox a 6-4 victory before 35,382.

Fact: My favorite question from the polygraph exam Rafael Palmeiro's agent set up last June to help Palmeiro prove his innocence: "Do you recall ever secretly doing anything that would have caused shame or dishonor to your family?" Opinion: Maybe it's just me, but I think this would have been a better question to ask: "Have you ever taken steroids?" Fact: My second-favorite question from the exam: "In the past year, did you ever seriously think about violating your personal beliefs by doing something unlawful?"

Like most professional athletes in the sunset of their careers, the Atlanta Braves' Brian Jordan thinks he might be able to squeeze one more season out of his battered body. Unlike most ballplayers, though, he knows he doesn't have to. He has plenty of post-baseball plans to fall back on. "[Baseball] is really my hobby right now," said Jordan, a Baltimore native and Milford Mill High graduate. He is developing a real estate project in Atlanta, which includes the construction of more than 1,100 homes.
