Three In A Row

That's three stinkers in a row for Hughes. His first five innings were pretty good though and he should try to build off of that rather than spend the rest of the time between now and his next start thinking about the sixth. I know we have to have patience with these young pitchers but it's hard sometimes. But the season is young and it is still way to early to get worried.

The MY9 announcers made a good point that the Yankees should probably try to get a rotation order that doesn't have Hughes and Kennedy going back to back. That way when they take their lumps its at least not in consecutive games.

Offense is looking lethargic again. Cano can't hit at all, A-Rod can't hit with men in scoring position, so on and so forth. Cabrera is always a tough pitcher though, he almost no-hit us once until Cano broke it up in the ninth.

Where have you gone, Robbie Cano? said...

Don't you think it's about time to move Pettitte back to the No.2 spot?

And I think they should give Scott Patterson a chance.

i agree with giving patterson a chance. what else could go wrong. they arent playing all that well right now.

The whole patterson issue has been a real mystery to me. he probably should have made it onto the team out of spring training but didn't inexplicably. Now we're going through a whole bunch of ineffective relievers while Patterson languishes in the minors. Maybe he told Girardi he had a stupid haircut or something. I don't know why they haven't brought this kid up. Maybe he'd just pitched innings of relief and they brought up Ramirez b/c he was fresh, but he was one of our best coming out of spring training, Ohlendorff has been ineffective and his name is much harder to spell. They should call patterson up.
