The Good

Zoilo Almonte got his first big league hit!

The Bad

I'd love to say that the Yankees aren't performing up to their potential, only that they are performing up to their potential.  We built a weak team, and weak teams get exposed throughout the course of 162 games. Wells, Hafner, and Overbay carried us early on, but eventually their numbers don't lie.  Wells has been hasn't hit over .230 since leaving Toronto, Hafner is good for some power, but is going to get his share of outs, and Overbay is clutch but has hit under .250 on average over the last 3 years.  We couldn't expect these guys to carry the weight of losing Granderson, and Teixeira, and having Cano slump throughout the first half of the year.

The Ugly

It's tough seeing Andy struggle.  He's a guy who battles, and always seems to grit out a good start, but recently he's been getting hit hard.  I wonder if age and a barking back may have finally caught up to him. 


Nothing in the homerun department means nothing in the bank for the Children's Health Fund.

I saw the Yankees' AAA team (now called the Railriders, for some reason) play the Twins' AAA team (Red Wings) last night.

It was a lot like watching the MLB team. The Railriders scattered some hits but were never really in the game.

More bothersome was the lack of recognizable prospects. I recognized JR Murphy at catcher, former busted Mets prospect Fernando Martinez in right, and that was it.
