What a nightmare of a game. 22-4? Are you kidding me? And 14 runs in one inning? Unreal.
How bad a game was it? Even Nick Swisher, for once, was at a loss for words:
“I wish I had something good to say,” Nick Swisher said. “I got nothing.”How bad a game was it? Even Johnny Damon, for once, was unable to find anything positive to say about one of his teammates:
"We have six losses on the year right now and [Wang's] got three of them," Damon said. "And in all three of those games, we've been blown out and we've had to go to our bullpen. So maybe our bullpen's not sharp the following days. So I don't know what more to say, but hopefully he can figure it out because it'd be tough to keep on going like this."How bad of a game was it? As Ross of New Stadium Insider notes, Freddy Sez was sitting down during the game, instead of stirring up the crowd with the frying pan. And that clip was from the fifth inning, when the score was "only" 16-2. And look how many empty seats there are.
I don't know what's going on with Chien-Ming Wang, but obviously the Yanks can't keep on throwing him out there, with his 36.50 ERA. Especially when his next start would be at Fenway Park. So my guess is that this will happen soon: Phil Hughes, come on down! You're the next contestant on "Wang Isn't Right!"
Also, is it just me, or does it seem that every time the Yankees play on FOX, something terrible happens? Darrell Rasner and Jeff Karstens both got hurt on the mound during FOX Games of the Week. Robinson Cano made three errors in one game on FOX. The A-Rod-Varitek brawl happened on FOX. What else am I missing here?
Oh, and Carl Pavano is pitching today. I am predicting that he throws a great game, as ex-Yankees often seem to do when facing their old team. Hopefully, A.J. Burnett will throw a better game.
What do you think about yesterday's debacle? Leave us a comment!
