So Chien-Ming Wang is having problems throwing his sinker. You see, when thrown properly, a sinker results in ground ball outs. When thrown improperly, it results in eight runs in less than 2 innings. I Wang's defense, those pitches were thrown for strikes, making the Wohlers comparison unfair and hurtful. In my defense, those pitches were thrown for runs, making the Wohlers comparison well deserved and, quite frankly, earned. Is it bad that I would like to see what Ian Kennedy can do in the two spot? Only time will tell.
The best part of last night's game? Swisher as the new set up man. Swisher pitched the eighth, giving up one hit, one walk, and no runs. He has, perhaps, been our most consistent reliever, and, I've got to think, the front runner for the all important 8th inning set up role. Oh yeah, and Swish had another RBI today, and scored two runs. Yankees MVP so far? I think so. AL MVP? Only time will tell.
Finally, tonight marks our fourth loss where we have scored at least four runs and still managed to lose. Okay, in fairness, tonight, and in the first two losses, we pitched to lose. Only the last game of the Kansas City series was managed to lose. Will William Jefferson Randolph be sitting in the Yankees dugout before long? Only time will tell.
