"Now, what is this site about, how Joe Torre ruined pitchers' arms? Is that it?"

Yanks fall again

I wasn't home to watch the game, but from what I can tell, it wasn't pretty.

The Yankees fell to a pitcher making his Major League debut (typical), didn't score after loading the bases with no outs (typical) and were done in by a defensive blunder (typical).

That's two losses in a row after winning the previous seven in a row, for those scoring at home. Let's hope this isn't the start of another up and down stretch that swallowed this team whole during the first two months of the season.

The seven-game winning streak gave the Yankees some margin for error. But Andy Pettitte needs to pitch another solid game like he has his last two times out.

Props to Dan Giese. Even though he made a bad throw, he pitched better than anyone expected. He and Sidney Ponson will start the Friday doubleheader against the Mets. Should be interesting.

I'd be glad to give you and the Yankees, Scott Proctor. The relief pitcher gave up four earned-runs today without getting an out. You can read more about his performance at the link provided below:

Yeesh, that's not good at all. Torre's years of abuse are finally catching up to him, it seems.
