Hughes refuses to put to rest the debate about his effectiveness as a starter, giving us something to talk about. Thanks, Hughes! Jeter, Chavez, Rodriguez, and Cano all hit home runs.
Hughes gave up six runs in less than five innings. That's over a run an inning. Math, people. Math.
After the game, sensing a depressed mood in the clubhouse, team Captain, Derek Jeter stood up in the middle of the clubhouse and gave a stirring speech, firing up the troops.
"We lost today," began Jeter to a somber clubhouse. "Hell, we lost yesterday. But that doesn't mean we can't be winners. We can all be winners when we check out my website, jetersfordchallenge.com. When you go there you can see my new Edge. I got mine in Blazing Copper. Watch as I blaze my copper everywhere I go. Oh, what's that?! It's blazing! Oh man, is that copper?! Yep. Blazing Copper. Trademark #*@&$, don't be going around saying that. So just remember, we can still be winners. But just to be clear, I'm already a winner. Blazing Copper out."
Needless to say, the applause was rousing.
The Love You Take Is Equal to the Love You Make
The Yankees seem to be unaware that we're in a recession. Look, we're happy to donate our money to charity, but did they really need to hit four home runs in a losing effort? Four? WTF? $8 more. That's WTF!
