Chris Archer was brilliant against the Yankees the last they saw of him, but he’s been faltering as of late and the Yankees are sending Hiroki “Alligator Cyborg” Kuroda to the bump in St. Pete tonight as the Yankees look to gain ground on their divisional rival, who sit six ahead in the loss column. Comment away.

Nova gave up four in the second, but Esmil Rogers finally allowed Gardner to work a dribbling single up the middle with one away in the bottom of the third in (mostly empty) Yankee Stadium, followed by Ichiro getting his 3,998th hit as a baseball player, should one count those gathered with the Blue Wave along with the time as a Mariner and a Yank. Then Robi goes yard for his 200th bomb, making the game 4-3 with Sori coming to the plate. Yo-Ho me mateys and let’s go.

I am absolutely, utterly confused by this latest ARod flustercuck but at least I am grateful his inner circle got the lineups to me early. Just play some fricking baseball, because the rationalizing going on in both the media and the players about what is fair and right about PED use and the exposure of a few of their many, many users is a bigger joke than ever.
Andy Pettitte and Felix Doubront at Fenway. Let’s hope for a great game. Lineups follow, comment away.
Alfonso Soriano went 4-5, adding another RBI bringing his series total to 14, but Anaheim rang up 8 runs on Hughes, Kelley, Logan, and Chamberlain to prevent the sweep. I’m not sure what is in the water but whatever is happening, I’m glad to see it. The Bombers got some much-needed bluster back. We’ll see what’s in store later today as Pettitte and Doubront square off at Fenway.

Any home-town boos heard at Yankee Stadium tonight might as well be for the team as a whole, not for ARod, who makes his first appearance of the season in the Bronx. The Yankees are plummeting, and those truly responsible are more likely wearing pinstripe suits than pinstripe unis. Ivan Nova gets the rock for the Bombers while Rick Porcello is on the bump for the Central Division-leading Tigers, whose +151 rundiff is scary as hell. This could be a truly ugly series for the hapless Yankees. Comment away.

Matt Garza is making his debut for the Rangers, who host the Yankees tonight at Arlington. Andy Pettitte pitches in his home state. I’m really excited to watch this game, mostly because I’m having a hard time trying to take my mind off cheating in baseball since I started thinking about it at the beginning of this post. Okay, I stopped. Go Yankees.

Phil Hughes is on the mound facing Ofando and the Rangers in Arlington. But the big question is will ARod get back to action before getting injured again or before getting the longest suspension given to a player that didn’t involve gambling? Who else might be on Bud’s “special list?” It’s a mystery.

Phil Hughes gave up three dingers and the Yankees mustered only one run off of eight hits and three passes as the Yankees dropped game two of the final pre-break series. C.C. Sabathia gets the rock today as the Bombers wrap up their the set with the rubber match against Kyle Gibson and Minnesota heading into the break. Comment away.
