Game recap: Yanks lose 7-2, but at least Clemens pitched well!

If you can't tell, the title of this post is very sarcastic. Roger Clemens (pictured) will end up being a giant waste of money. For those that still care, he pitched six scoreless innings for AAA Scraton/Wilkes-Barre, striking out six and allowing no runs.

However, with the Yankees continuing to lose (they have won only seven games out of 20 since Clemens announced he was coming back and have fallen 8 games further in the standings), Clemens will not make much of a difference.

I didn't watch any of tonight's Yankee game (which explains the lack of a liveblog), but the Yankees were shut out for seven innings by Toronto starter Dustin McGowan, who had a 7.17 ERA before the game started. The Yankees eventually scored two runs on a Hideki Matsui home run in the eighth inning.

The Yankees had an hour-long team meeting prior to the game. Obviously, the Yankees have tuned out manager Joe Torre, after putting together this joke of a performance after a closed-door "meeting."

The Tigers, the team that leads the Wild Card, lost. It doesn't even matter what Boston does. The Yankees have no shot of catching them, so they can win all the games they want.
