Glad I wasn't home

You all know by now that the Yankees lost 6-5. They are now 0-4 against the Detroit Tigers this season.

Kei Igawa was terrible, as expected - three innings, 11 hits, six earned runs. He is still scheduled to start next Wednesday, but hopefully something will change between tonight and Tuesday evening. It's amazing what $5 million can buy you in 2008.

Jonathan Albaladejo will be added to the disabled list with an elbow injury. He pitched 2 1-3 scoreless innings before injuring himself. Chris Britton, who was sent down for Igawa, will be brought right back up. The same situation occurred when Alex Rodriguez was placed on the disabled list.

By the way, since bursting onto the scene last season, Shelley Duncan has done absolutely nothing. He is 5-26 with one RBI this season, yet he continues to hit high in the lineup when he does get playing time. It's nice that he's energetic and it's nice that he slams forearms with his teammates, but he's showing nothing at the plate.

The Yankees once against fall one game under .500 on the season at 18-19.

Awhile back one of your readers suggested that Carl Pavano should play first base. Not the position, but the actual base. I nominate Kai Igawa to play second base. Not the position, but the actual base!!!
