Sick start for the Bombers, huh? We might have to think of a new nickname for this season if they only guys swinging the bats are gonna be Vernon Wells and Travis Hafner. On the verge of being swept by the Sox. Fairweather fans crying about the cold. Hey Yankees fans! Its cold in Queens too. The stadium is still full. The reason nobody sticks around through the 8th and 9th is because the product on the field is boring and crappy.
Not at all the start you wanted to see. Shaky starting pitching. Shitty relief pitching. Still sitting around waiting for that 3 run home run to arrive. Except this time the only guys fulfilling that wish is a crew of washed up stars in Wells, Hafner, Overbay and Youkilis. Of course, we’re only 2 games into the season. And Andy Pettitte is almost sure to go out there at throw 6 innings of 2 or 3 run ball tonight. But the season is 3 days old and all the red flags that the Yankees were potentially worried about are being raised already.
Anybody in New York who wants to see a real winning product, the Mets first pitch is at 1:10 today
