    Last I checked the Yankees starters have a lower ERA than the red flops. Both lester and buch have been inconsistent. the only one on your staff who has been consitent all year is beckett. Can you show me otherwise?

         Did you bother to read the article which I posted for you, above? Stick your head in the sand if you choose, Bambino. But the Yanks have been getting by with retreads, Freddie Garcia and Bartolo Colon. No way these guys will hold up over the course of the season.

         Not getting Cliff Lee in the off-season is haunting them. I'm not saying that the Yanks are a bad team. They'll win 90-92 games. But, it will take 94-97 wins to secure the AL East pennant. 

         Their only chance is to land a stud starting pitcher before the trading deadline.

    So you are going to use a red sox blog written by a sawx fan as your "proof"?

    Colon has been much more consistent than any of your pitchers not named beckett.

    As far as him not holding up, that's merely conjecture on your part. It remains to be seen.

    My "theory" is that our lefty-loaded-lineup is built to win in Yankee stadium.

    And it is possible that that is no accident. 

    Possible.

         Come on, Babe! Colon is, and always has been, a head case! Plus, he's 37 years old. Freddie Garcia's arm is attacked to his shoulder with duct tape. Are you seriously going to argue that you'd rather have those two clowns, than Lester (an "inconsistent" 8 game winner) and Buchholz?

    Doesn't matter what Colon "has been", it matters what he is now, very consistent and very efficient.

    I didn't read anywhere that Garcia's arm attacked his shoulder with duct tape. Sounds serious.

    I hear ya Tex.  Looks pretty good.  But, from my vantage point, not good enough to start counting chickens or counting out Yankees.  Maybe its the whole 27-7 thing.  I don't know.  But I think it altogether too early to assert any bragging rights.  The Sox are not without holes and, as we know, anything and everything can happen in a baseball season.

    The saddest thing for Yankees' fans is many are pinning their hopes on injuries to key Red Sox players.That could,of course,happen but if your only hope for success against your toughest rival is for said rival to suffer injuries to some of their best players,your evaluation of the Yanks isn't very high.

         The main concern for the Sox is their bullpen, not their starting staff.

    One dumb OP. 

    I hope we are better than they are and am delighted with what's happened to date, but really, truly don't like saying we've got their number this early in the season.  These are the Yankees, and they have been in the hunt just about every year for a very long time.  Plus, unlike the Braves, they actually win the WS now and then.  They've got money and smarts.  They've got some good players and a pretty good manager.

    Yankees pitchers are excellent ... keep up that excellence tonight please. 

    No offense, Babe, but why not post the Yankees ERA against the Sox, what do we care what they did against the Royals or As?   

    I will start you off .... CC has a 5.0+ ERA in 2 games against the Sox this year.

    A team is never as good as it appears to be when things are going well and never as bad as it appears to be when things are going bad.

    The Yankees have many problems.  AJ Burnett and Garcia in the rotation.  Garcia gets by with mediocre stuff and as the Yankee announcers like to say  for how long?  Against professional hitters like Boston has the answer is not too long.

    AJ is their number two starter and last night  he again could not make pitches when he needs to. 

    AJ." If anything’s different, I made pitches in Toronto. I didn't make pitches tonight." That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.





     AJ has proven that he is a big name starter in name only and not in production

    BC has pitched extremely well but how long can he go?  Not that he will get hurt but he has not pitched this many innings in years.

    Yanks do not have a lefty in the pen. Logan is showing this year why he has been a journey man through out his career.

    The bottom of your line up is a mess.  Martin can't hit and has reverted to the player he was in LA the last few years. Gardner is showing that he is nothing more than a fourth outfielder.  Speed was Gardner's game and he can't even steal a base.  Nick is at 222 with little power.  Yanks third place hitter is a 250 hitter.  Posada is struggling to hit 200.    CF is in a free fall.  In his last 10 games he is hitting 200 and striking out close to 35% of the time.

    It is close to impossible to generate any type of offense with this lineup.  I don't see this changing with the type of hitters they now have in their line up.

    The young shortstop has some potential with the bat.  The rest of the bench is lacking. It was a mistake for Cashman not to bring Melky back.  He would have 100 times better player off the bench than Jones.  In fact my guess is that he would by now be the starting left fielder.  

    Eric C has been this years Nick J.

    If Hughes can come back and pitch he will take one of the spots either from Nova ( which I think would be a mistake ) or Garcia.  That still leaves a AJ in the rotation.  Right now AJ is nothing more than a number 5 starter on a playoff team.

    Unless there are major trades (because the only player that can help the offense in the minors is Montero) this lineup will be filled with mediocre hitters for the rest of the year.

    Too many holes to fill during the season yanks will need to play the cards that Cashman has dealt them.

    Unfortunately, I largely agree. You also forgot Cano's lackadaisacal approach this year; here's guessing he's getting l--d too much. Also,

    Theo is much better than Cashman; let's not forget he was voted the GM of the decade.

    Ditto the Mgrs.

    The RS seem to prepare better and are more focused than the Yankees (i.e Gardner) ; their approach with Garcia (sit on the changeup, react to the 85 MPH fastball) was on the mark. Here's guessing the rest of the league shall catch on, rendering Garcia to ignominy.

    Cervelli has lost it. Ditto Swisher.

    Burnett may have good stuff, but nobody will compare his makeup to Bob Gibson.

    Jeter (aka Mr. DP) should not be hitting leadoff anymore.
