They deserved to lose

The Yankees deserved to lose tonight. Scoring five runs despite pounding out 15 hits is no way to win a game. They stranded 10 runners on base and grounded into two double plays.

And that was just the offense.

Andy Pettitte could not hold three leads (2-0, 4-2, 5-4). He gave up 10 hits and five runs in seven innings. While he deserved the loss, Kyle Farnsworth gave up the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. He surrendered three hits and one earned run.

In Pettitte's last eight starts, he is 2-4 with a 5.17 ERA. The Yankees are 2-6 in these starts (the only two wins were in his previous two starts). While Pettitte is traditionally a second-half pitcher, one has to be concerned by these numbers.

With the loss, the Yankees are back under .500. They went 3-4 on their seven-game road trip.

I'm disgusted.

The Yankees will win if they score more runs than the other team.

I never told you I was a genius.

I never told you anything about it.

It's too bad Farnsworthless recorded the Loss. It should be credited to Andy "I did steroids once, okay maybe twice" Pettitte.
