    They usually lose games when they have a chance to tack on runs and don't.

    Spacing runs doesn't add some coefficient or something. Why would the spacing matter whatsoever? The fact that they scored early and dug their ace out of a hole to hand the lead over to a tremendous bullpen and the best closer in the history of the game is a bad thing?

    Scoring 6 runs isn't a problem, but 12 lob is.
    They tatooed a very good starter, and were shut down by a bullpen with some good arms in it. You'd like to see less runners stranded, but they got men on base and they pushed 6 across the plate. Would the emotion be the same if they had just gotten less men on base and still scored 6?

    No comprendo.

    I was a much happier person before Friday arrived. Thankfully I've been working the last three days and have missed most of this trainwreck.

    Go figure, Swisher had great numbers against Hellickson entering the game and the 2 pivital ABs of the game involved Swisher who simply could not get the job done.

    Agreed. Making me think twice that the Pineda trade was a good one. The freaking guy came in 15 lbs overweight ( I know they said 10 lbs but it's almost always more than what they tell you ) and his fastball has disappeared....

    The hidden horror of that contract (aside from the overt and obvious) is that it ruined Montero's value to th Yankees.

    Yep. Although one could argue that they could have let Montero DH for a few years while grooming him as the heir apparent to Teixeira at 1B. Alas, what's done is done. I think the offense will be okay and we just have to hope that Pineda regains his form.

    Worst start since '98. Of course, 1998 was probably one of the best years in Yankee history.
    What we can appreciate now is that the Yankees from 1996-2003 were even more extraordinary than we thought.

    Today seemed more unlucky than bad. Quite a few well-hit balls right at guys.

    4 K's for Yankees batters total-- for comparison, the Rays K'd 11 times.

    That's all I'm hoping for, Mr. Coffee. It looks like the Rays got into the Yankees heads this series. They seemed more worried about the shift than anything else.

    Some folks think this was not just luck in the series. Some think it had to do with positioning, at least in part.

    We should all know by now this Yankees team will have the slow start that they are having. It just stinks to see year after year.

    Agreed. Coming into the weekend, I expected us to win the first game and lose the next two. While the 0-3 start isn't ideal, and we didn't score any runs yesterday, he didn't look bad this weekend. As always, it will come down to pitching.

    The nature of the Yankee franchise is to try to win every year. That requires long contracts to players who will be in athletic decline by their end. Otherwise you can't sign top free agents. If ARod was not given the contract, someone else would have been. That someone else might have been somewhat younger and productive longer into the contract, but the Yankees were never going to have a young, full-time DH who did not have a defensive position he could play adequately. Montero was never going to have relative value to this franchise as a DH.

    +1. Kaye was talking about how well the Rays were positioning themselves against Yankee batters, as if they knew what was coming.
    What we can appreciate now is that the Yankees from 1996-2003 were even more extraordinary than we thought.
