  1. Give Freddy a break. He gave up 5 runs. The way the team is SCORING, there's not a pitcher on the roster that can keep the other team down. Name a pitcher who can consistently hold the other team to less than 2 runs. I imagine the Yankees will actually win a game before you can come up with that person's name.

    You're right – Joba looked good tonite. He didn't just work a scoreless inning, he looked almost like "old" Joba. Which is the only good news I saw.

    The team is built to outslug the other team; there are NO shut-down starters on the roster. Even Kuroda's 3 run starts go for naught; 3 runs is way too many to expect from this lineup, at this point in time.

  2. I feel like I've been transported back to 1967. Rather than put myself to sleep last night watching that offensive offense, I called up Baseball-Reference.com and looked back on some really awful Yankee teams. And 1967 and 1968 were brutal. But not much worse than this stretch. Can you imagine putting in 162 games watching this? That's what we did back then. Never thought we'd have to live through that again.

  3. It is a shame we don't have a better option than Garcia right now…sadly we are playing the hand we have dealt our selves. Lets just hope we aren't playing our way out of the playoff race.
