What Did We Learn From This Easy Loss?

1.  We learned that Tanaka is a, " reason for concern."  How much are we paying him, again?

2.  The Yankees are striking out like crows in a hayfield.  Always there.

3.  The Rays scored more on one home-run than we did on two.

4.  Tommy Layne was freed up by Boston for a reason.  He needs to be released.

5.  Shreve seemed to be okay, but when he kept shaking that shoulder after throwing a strike
three " zinger," to the first batter of that inning, I blinked.  He simultaneously flashed some sort of a grin, unlike his normal demeanor, and not out of any disrespect for the batter.  Just odd.  Made me wonder if he was feeling something he did not intend to talk about.

6.  Sanchez keeps getting hit by foul tips in the head.  I hope that is a good, protective helmet.  I worry about concussions.

7.   The threat of the Yankees coming back from a late inning deficit has dwindled into the land of fantasy.  Two strikeouts looking, and a caught foul ball, just don't mount a threat.  Even Hicks' two out walk in the 9th should have been called strike three.

There is no point watching Yankee games.  We get behind, early, and we lose.

Run the story, Danno.

And run it again tomorrow.

I SAW THAT MOMENT WHEN SHREVE SHOOK HIS ARM (THE FIRST TIME).....I SAID "UH-O, SOMETHING POPPED." ...... IT FIGURES...HE HASN'T GIVEN UP A RUN YET, WE ACTUALLY NEED HIM.

GAME NOTES:
TANAKA'S PITCHES ARE GETTING HIT ON THE RISE. EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE JUST RISING UP TO THE HITTERS STROKE...... I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE HE IS TIPPING HIS PITCHES.... I STILL DON'T THINK HE IS HURT.

HICKS LOOKED LIKE SHIT AGAIN TODAY.

HEADLEY SUCKS.

BIG PROBLEM FOR TOMORROW:
SANCHEZ WILL BE BENCHED BECAUSE OF THE SHOT OFF HIS MASK, (AND THAT MAY NOT BE A BAD MOVE-PRAY FOR NO CONCUSSION)....BUT IT MAKES OUR CHANCES OF WINNING ALMOST NILL.....WE NEED THIS MAN'S BAT IN THIS LINEUP.....AUSTIN ROMINE REALLY DOESN'T CUT IT.

OVERVIEW:
THE METS ARE SLOWLY GETTING BACK IN IT.
I'M IN A BAD FUCKING MOOD.

You'll be in a much worse mood if we get hammered again today.

Which is likely.
