Oh Bother

The Good

Kuroda was back to his silent ace-like ways.  He recorded 7 shutout innings, striking out 7, and handed a one-run lead to the bullpen....who would later betray him.

The Bad

Where did the offense go?  Yes, I know Matt Harvey is a certifiable ace, and all that but you have to find a way to score at least a second run, maybe even a third if you've had your Wheaties.  Kuroda deserved a better showing from our offense.  He matched 0's through 7 innings with a guy who was born a decade later than him, and who is the hope of an entire franchise.  Can someone hit a homerun?  Also, who is Reid Brignac?

The Ugly

Mariano blew his first save of the season throwing the Yankee universe into chaos.  Whenever he blows a save, we typically hear a lot about how it just shows that he's only human.  But he's not human.  He is the product of intermarriage between Optimus Prime and a woman from the planet Krypton, which sources believe to be Superman's sister.  So no, he can't blow saves, and now the Yankeeverse is in utter chaos.

No Woman, No Cry

Unfortunately Bob Marley made no mention of the children, who will continue to cry after Matt Harvey made the Yankees look like they were swinging ropes instead of bats.  No homeruns, Do Cry.

Brignac kind of sounds like Brainiac. Rivera is Kryptonian and blows a save. Coincidence?

Rivera was going to blow a save eventually. It's just more frustrating that it happens when the team is poised to win despite being nearly incapable of scoring runs. I'm concerned that the team has been quite lucky so far and is going to encounter a lean stretch when the pitching starts letting up 4 or 5 runs a game, but the offense can only muster 2 or 3.
