Awful, terrible

If the top of the sixth inning wasn't a microcosm of the 2008 Yankees' season to date, I don't know what is.

Derek Jeter tripled with one out. Of course, he didn't score.

Bobby Abreu grounded out to short and Hideki Matsui popped out to short.

With Abreu, a lefty batter, you would think he'd be able to chop a ball to the right side of the infield to score Jeter. I mean, he seems to do that a lot anyway.

With a team struggling to score runs, they can't strand runners at third with less than two outs. Chien-Ming Wang is pitching fine. His only crime was giving up one earned run thus far. Too bad the Yankees have no runs.
