AAAAAUUUUUUUGH!, Part Deux


Well the Yankee woes continue on in California. Brian Bruney was awful yesterday. Really if a guy isn't good enough to make it in the 'pen of the D-Backs in the last couple of years then he shouldn't be good enough to be in the Yankees bullpen. Note to Cashman, get another arm for the pen in the next week before the trade deadline. The overuse of the bullpen throughout the regular season is alarming to me. We seem to have, at least in the last five years since winning our last series, our bullpens burntout by the time the postseason rolls around. I feel like we are on that same path this year. It is difficult to fault Torre because of the reality of how long in the tooth our rotation is and the lack of innings that reality creates makes alternatives few and far between. Oh well the saving grace is that the Sox are again matching our futility loss for loss. I can't believe that they are now 5 back in the wild card as well as the division. It is looking more and more like there will only be the division winner in the east being lone representative in the postseason. As long as that team is the Yankees that will be even sweeter. I would not feel any sympathy if the Sox didn't make the playoffs.
