Okay, that was really ugly…
Saturday’s 9-7 loss to the Rays was ugly, I am not quite sure what you’d call last night’s 7-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
A.J. Burnett was a disappointment, giving up 5 runs, 3 earned, and 5 walks in less than 3 innings of work. I guess he has to wear a Jays uniform to be effective at Fenway Park because it certainly doesn’t work in a Yankees jersey…
The Yankees and the Red Sox are once again tied at the top of the AL East Standings with records of 34-24.
The Yankees need to put this one behind them, and come out today with a new and fresh attitude. They are better than their 0-for-6 record against the Sox indicates, and hopefully, good things are in store for Chien-Ming Wang and the Yankees tonight.
I won’t lose the faith, and I am certainly not ready to be sized for a Jason Bay t-shirt.
The Yankees chose center fielder Slade Heathcott, an 18 year old high school player from Texarkana, Texas. Slade definitely has a name fit for a Texan, and hopefully a swing fit for Yankee Stadium. There’s only one serious flaw in Slade’s game…he’s a Red Sox fan…but I think we’ll be able to cure that ailment.
With their second pick, the Yankees selected another 18-year old high school player in defensive-minded catcher John Murphy from Bradenton, Florida.

Can’t say that I care for the batting helmet… 😉
The Vikings have supposedly “temporarily suspended” their pursuit of QB Brett Favre. The deadline imposed by head coach Brad Childress was a poor idea if the team legitimately wanted Favre, so supposedly the ‘cooling off’ period will allow Favre additional time to decide if his shoulder is up to the challenge of another season. All things considered, Brett, stay home…
Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins for their 2-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Finals to force Game 7. The team with home ice has won every game of this series, and unfortunately, Game 7 is in Detroit. Nevertheless, if there’s anyone who can perform the impossible, it’s Sidney Crosby. Hopefully, they’ll be hoisting the Stanley Cup in the streets of Pittsburgh. Good luck to the Pens!
What? The Lakers lost? What’s up with that…
Have a great day!
