Boston Massacre

http://www.inmowetrust.com/img/ajbummed060909.jpg
On a chilly, rainy day in Boston the Yanks were completely embarrassed by the Sox to the tune of a 7-0 shutout. A.J. Burnett was a disgrace to the road grays, the offense managed a meager two hits. Boston has now tied the Yanks for the lead in the A.L. East, and hold a 6-0 advantage over the Bombers in the season series.




There were three highlights from the Yankee perspective, in order of enjoyment:
  1. Burnett kicking a water cooler as he walked off the field in defeat. Great to see that kind of fire out of a mediocre pitcher.
  2. Robinson Cano's single off Dustin Pedroia's glove
  3. Brett Gardner's single off Nick Green's glove.

That's right folks, both Yankee hits were singles that really should've been outs. Honestly, it didn't matter how pitiful Burnett threw, and trust me, he was pitiful. Josh Beckett owned the Yankee bats and they pretty much rolled over and died long before the pen came into the game.

This game doesn't concern me a whole lot. It's only the first game of the series, and Beckett has been pitching well lately. I had it down as a loss, I have zero faith in Burnett. The thing that worries me is we're counting on Chien-Ming Wang to right the ship tomorrow, and well, he's been the worst pitcher on the planet so far this season.

The lowlight of the game had to be Burnett yielding a dong to the artist formerly known as Big Papi. The Sox decrepit, bloated, un-juiced designated hitter connected for this third of the season off Burnett. The shame. Well, at least we have Burnett's suspension to look forward to.

The Yanks will look to turn things around against Tim Wakefield tomorrow, weather permitting. I'm wondering if the Yankee switch hitters will bat from the right side against Wakefield. I think Posada has done that in the past.

Player of The Game: Robertson, for pitching a clean inning.
Team Record: 34-24
Up Next: Pray for rain?

The tide has to turn in the Yankees' favor sooner or later. Right?

Are you betting on it w/ Wang on the hill?
