    The Yankees are not rushing Tanaka. You know how I know? There's no hurry to rush Thornton's replacement, no Lindgren, Banuelos or Mitchell to go to the hill, or get us over the hill, as in R. Hill. Chill with Whitley and the thrill of the Hill. Relax, what's the hurry, 40 games remain. No hurry with the blues of Drew, Refsnyder who? Hey, can we really be rushing Tanaka? Don't worry, be happy.
