If you're going to get shut out, the other team may as well score double figures on you. That's the thought I'm taking to bed with me tonight after a 12-0 reaming
at the hands of the Orioles.
Jeff Karstens made what will hopefully be his last start for the New York Yankees tonight, in place of the suspended Roger Clemens. Karstens was putrid, as was Jim Brower. Neither belongs in the majors. Joe should've left Brower out there to rot and saved the rest of the pen.
You never know what would've happened, but you have to think the Yanks would've stood a better chance with Clemens out there. The Alex Rios beanball may have cost the Yanks a game in the standings tonight. Boston had a come-from-behind win against the D-Rays. Seattle is currently losing to the Twins, so they shouldn't lose any ground in the Wild Card.
No letter to the Skipper tonight, my rage level is too high. The Yanks need to turn the page quickly, they face a tough, tough lefty tomorrow in Erik Bedard. The Yankee Stadium crowd will get its
chance in two and a half months to see Phil Hughes. (Thanks to Mike from Green Pinstripes
for the correction). Player of The Game
