Yankee Offense Continues To Put Up Big Numbers

Last night, we put up zilch in 6 against the Twins in the rain. AJ pitched a great game, so we didn't officially lose this one yet.

Tex and A-Rod ( and now Robbie, too ) continue to embarrass major league baseball, as their perfect record of driving in runs with men in scoring position continues.

We need to pay these guys more. Perhaps some "in-season" contract extensions are warranted.

Personally, I can't wait until Ken Phellps is ready to go again. I hear he is looking great in the minors, though not so great at the plate.

Because of the rain delay, I had time to compare the calories in a single stalk of celery to Ken's
re-hab batting average. Unfortunately for the Yankees, the celery wins hands down. And Ken isn't even facing lefties in the minors.

But he will no doubt justify the trade for Austin Jackson, perhaps in the area of community service.

Meanwhile, the set back recently suffered by Ace Aceves means the season is finished. He will soon join Nick Johnson and find himself among the "disappeared " Yankees for 2010.

We'll always have last year.

Batting third for the Yankees, The Ghost of Andy Phillips? Or?

[Andy Phillips lifetime: .250/.294/.384
Tex this year: .209/.327/.378
The real Ken Phelps in his last year as a Yank: .249/.340/.378]

To this old-timer, Grandy looks more like the reincarnation of former Yankee centerfielders Ruppert Jones and Jerry Mumphrey.

But don't worry about Aceves' injury or Park's gopher balls; Brian Bruney is now available to ride back to our bullpen to save the season.

I say we sign Bruney, as backup BP pitcher at least.
