Yanks Offense Still on Vacation...Braves 3 Yanks 0

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Yankees 0 4 1
Braves 4 7 1

WP: Hanson (3-0)
LP: Wang (0-6)...WTF!?!?!

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Tommy Hanson. He wasn't great, but he held the Yankees to just 4 hits in 5.1 IP. He is just lucky the Yankees couldn't hit water if they fell out of a boat knowing they had RISP.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Garrett Anderson's 2 out 2 RBI double. The hit extended the Braves lead to 3-0, which was plenty of insurance of the Braves.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Derek Jeter's inning ending double play in the sixth. It was the last chance the Yankees had with runners on base to get a rally going. Once that happened the Yankees seemingly just quit.


  • Yankees have lost 5 of their last 6 and are 4-6 in interleague play, a part of the schedule they normally dominate.
  • Phil Hughes is better than Chien-Ming Wang. The Yankees cannot seriously be sending an 0-6 pitcher with a 12 ERA out against the Mets Sunday night on national television. But they will anyway.
  • A-Rod still sucks. And he let a groundball get by him that he could have had which led to 3 runs for the Braves and he didn't get a hit. He's now our own Big Papi.
  • This offense needs a spark. Shelley Duncan anyone?? I mean freakin Angel Berroa and Brett Tomko are on the team. They are not helping the team in any way possible.
  • Are we still ahead in the wild card? Holy #%$! we are! I guess that's what will be playing for...that is if they decide to start winning again.

This team is a disgrace... SEE YA!
