The Yanks are sinking, and sinking fast.
In April they were able to take advantage of teams still shaking off the cob webs but with the rest of the league ready to play now the Bombers find themselves losing early and often.
Hitting has gone ice cold - when Brett Gardner is one of your "hottest" hitters. . . . there's a problem. A-Rod has had 1 HR for the month and his batting avg. has dropped by 90 points since May began.
Pitching, relief pitching is not too bad (Pendelton real deal?) - I can't tell if the starting pitching has been disappointing or they're just not getting the run support . . maybe both.
Posada - Girardi and the Yanks should let him rot away on the bench. When you're hitting on the Interstate you thank the manger for putting you in the lineup, you don't complain about your spot.
One derivative of the Posada situation is another example of Jeter's leadership - or lack there of. Just how I thought Jeter's leadership was in question around the 04-07 seasons, I feel he has let the team down yet again this year. As captain he should have stood up said Posada we go way back, but F-You. Instead, he seems burdened to be asked the question about it. The team needs him to show some emotion and get fired up.
How many more losses before we reach the tipping the point of either calling the season or making dramatic changes to salvage it?
Switching Sports: I"m not much of an NBA fan these days, but I do find my self pulling for a team over the other. Or rather teams. I want the winner of the West conference to go all the way, and not the Heat or the Bulls. Here's why: Jason Kidd has been a long time player, may not have a chance again, I'd like to see him win one. Why Oklahoma? - Kevin Durant. When James went to the Heat he called him and Wade out saying be good enough to build your own championship. I like the attitude. So go Thunder, go Mavs.
