Well That Was A Waste of Time

The Good

Pettitte pitched well.  Might even be able to roll it into a contract for next year.

The Bad

The offense mustered 5 hits, only 1 for extra bases.  I would say that it had to do with RA Dickey's knuckleball, but we've seen this sort of weak hitting all year long, so I'm going to instead attribute it to the deficient lineup we put out every game.

The Ugly

If getting swept in Boston diminished any hopes of post season success, a 2-0 loss against the last place team in our division has diminished hopes of seeing any sort of post season baseball period.  It may very well be for the best, because who wants to see this team in the post season?  A fragile offense, a fragile psyche, and pitching that has run out of steam just wouldn't be fun to watch.  Now I'm all for a team getting on a hot streak at the right time and playing good baseball, but you would have hoped the Yankees to do this after the sweep in Boston.
