Bombers Bombed By Tigers 16-0

Will the real New York Yankees please stand up. Are they the team that just a week ago was the hottest team in the American League, reducing what was once a 14.5 game lead by the Boston Red Sox to just four games? Or are they the doormats that they appeared to be Monday night in the last of a four game series against the Detroit Tigers. The Jekyll and Hyde bunch from the Bronx sure looked like a team that had peaked prematurely and are now on the downward slope, as they lost 16-0. Detroit starter Justin Verlander kept New York in check for seven frames, scattering just three hits. Yankees starter Mike Mussina on the other hand was beaten like a pinata lasting just 3 innings and giving up six runs. And then the New York bullpen, which looked like a team strength until recently gave up an additional 10 runs including nine off Yankees reliever Sean Henn. Detroit out hit New York 20-3, and took the series by winning 3-4. New York takes on Boston on Tuesday are now eight games behind the Red Sox.

I think the upcoming series with Boston will determine what is to become of the Yanks' remaining season.

There have been tons of theories on why the Yanks aren't winning. Let's face it, their entire season has been like a woman during that time of the month...

But, as a loyal fan, I gotta stay positive until it's over!

Let's Go Yankees!
