Offense, pitching don’t show up

This game was the exact opposite of yesterday’s game.

Despite recording 12 hits, the Yankees could only score three times.  They also left 12 runners on base.  Meanwhile, Joba Chamberlain only lasted four innings, throwing 84 pitches in the process.  I can’t wait to hear what Mike Francesa has to say tomorrow.

I’m not sure why Alfredo Aceves was brought in in the fifth inning.  It could’ve been a nice opportunity to give Chien-Ming Wang some work.  Oh well.

A.J. Burnett and Derek Holland start tomorrow’s rubber game at 8:05 p.m.

Wang is not going to turn back into his old self if he never gets the opportunity to face major league hitters.
He's a career 54-23 starter for God's sake. You can't treat your back to back 19 wins pitcher like a piece of garbage!

The Yankees screwed up in calling up Wang when Joba got hit with the liner. Now they have someone who they clearly do not want to use, just sitting out in the bullpen delaying his way back to being effective. In the end this is just a case of a knee-jerk reaction to call up Wang before he was ready.

Yes, I do believe they panicked in bringing up Wang. The only way they can send him down is to make up another mysterious injury. I really don't think they thought this through at all.
