Losing Interest

The Good

CC Sabathia pitched a complete game, giving up 3 runs, and striking out 6.  That is alone, the highlight of the game for the Yankees.

The Bad

Six singles.  That was the Yankee offense yesterday.   Watching this offense is depressing.  I would say it's like watching the Kansas City Royals, but that's who we're losing against.  I would say it's like watching the Scranton Yankees, but at least they have Derek Jeter, and can hit past the infield.

The Ugly?

Reports have indicated that MLB will be suspending A-Rod after the All-Star break.  Not that I was relying on A-Rod to turn this team around, but it's just annoying that the Yankees cannot seem to get anything going.

Why Bother

No homeruns.  I bet the Children's Health Fund is regretting their decision to base their fund raising on Yankee homeruns.

Travis Hafner 12hr = $24
Vernon Wells 10hr = $20
Brett Gardner 7hr = $14
Kevin Youkilis 2hr = $4
Jayson Nix 2hr = $4
Robinson Cano 20hr = $40
Ichiro Suzuki 5hr = $10
Lyle Overbay 10hr = $20
Brennan Boesch 3hr = $6
Francisco Cervelli 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 3hr = $6
Ben Francisco 1hr = $2
David Adams 2hr = $4
Curtis Granderson 1hr = $2

Mark Teixeira 3hr = $6
Zoilo Almonte 1hr = $2

Total 84 hrs = $168

Shields is very good, but come on. It's not like he's left-handed!

The Yankees may deal Hughes and Joba soon - and will probably take on another team's salary dump again. That will only increase the unsettling, who-are-these-guys feeling one gets when watching this team.

It's true, unless they can get us some some big name offense ala Alfonso Soriano for the rest of the season.
