A Win

The Good

The Yankees won with an 8th inning, 4-run rally against Toronto.  The combination of Hughes and Huff as a single starter continues to bear good results.  7 innings and 3 runs is what we got out of them, and it is unlikely that we would be able to get that out of one of them.

The Bad

Yes the Yankees rallied in the 8th inning to top Toronto, but Toronto is the last place team in our division, so the fact that we were down 3-0 through 8 innings bears mentioning.

The Ugly

The fact that a win doesn't merit much confidence in this team should be fairly telling.  I know they're still in this wild card race, and could very well make it, but this team is fragile, and plays fragile baseball.  The result is that I'm left unimpressed when they rally against a last place team.

Power Outage

Maybe they're just saving the homeruns for the one game wildcard playoff.
