, all the time

Every single time I think the Yankees have turned a corner they come back with a stinker like this.

I don’t have the energy for anything more than bullet points about this loss:

  • Matt DeSalvo, proceed directly to AAA. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.
  • Jeter is hurt. He probably won’t sit, but he’s hurt.
  • Just when Abreu and Cano heat up, Jeter and Damon go ice cold (combined 1–9 tonight, the one hit was a broken bat ground ball to second)
  • I hope I never hear about Roger Clemens’ groin area again.
  • Jon Garland threw a great game tonight. No excuses about late flights, or let downs after the Sox game. Garland was great.
  • Of course, Boston is up 1–0 in the first out in Oakland. Julie Tavarez will probably throw a gem.
  • Steve Phillips is a complete idiot. I cannot watch Baseball Tonight anymore.
  • Apparently, every single White Sox player is involved in one trade rumor or another.
  • God hates me. Or at least the sports gods do, if you’re into the whole pagan thing.
  • Cano looks REALLY good at the plate. 2 line drives, and 2 walks tonight. He’s back.
  • Good showing for Chris Britton in mop-up time relief. 3 innings, 1 hit, 1 run, 38 pitches. This allowed Proctor and Bruney a well-deserved night off.
  • I consider myself a pretty patient man. By all accounts, George Steinbrenner is not. I’m at the end of my rope with this team, I can only imagine what’s going through George’s mind.
  • Deep breath. It’s only the first game of the series, they could win the next three.

Player of the Game: Robinson Cano, 2 for 2, 2 walks.
