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

One Pirate helps, the other hurts

Xavier Nady tied the game with his fourth home run as a Yankee in the eighth.

On the other side of the ball, Damaso Marte walked three in the ninth inning leading up to a walk-off grand slam to Marlon Byrd. Why was Joe Girardi sitting on his hands, allowing Marte to walk the ballpark?

And I thought it couldn't get worse after watching the second Yankee pitcher in two years to leave the Texas mound due to injury.

What a terrible night to be a Yankee fan.

Oh, by the way, the Red Sox and Rays both lost, so tonight would have been a great opportunity to gain some ground.

I really have no idea why Girardi didn't pull him when he walked the bases loaded... it was like 110 degrees on the mound, he had thrown a ton of pitches and was obviously exhausted. And this after coming in in relief and pitching well the previous inning.
