Yanks Drop Opener

The Good

The offense scored six runs and Colon went 4.1 innings allowing just 1 earned run.

The Bad

Giving up nine runs to a team that just got swept by Cleveland is bad. So is doing nothing offensively for the last four innings of the game.

The Ugly

Hughes managed to give up six runs in two innings. I say 'manage' because with a performance this poor I can only assume his goal was to give up runs, not prevent them. Hughes still hasn't found his fastball, and perhaps more problematically, has chosen to throw only two of his pitches: off the plate, and straight down the middle. Not a great formula for success.

The Children Are Our Future

Which is why we have to stop them. A-Rod hit a solo home run over the green monster, tying him with someone for something (I assume. At this point, they're all milestone home runs). That was the only Yankee home run in the game.

Mark Teixeira 4hr = $8
Curtis Granderson 1hr = $2
Russell Martin 1hr = $2
Alex Rodriguez 3hr = $6
Jorge Posada 3hr = $6
Robinson Cano 1hr = $2
Andruw Jones 1hr = $2
Total = $28
