Like the Yankees, Joe Girardi's mind was some where else. Who knows, maybe he was thinking about the Cubs job (SIKE, he's definitely going to stay.)
Last night's game was terrible. A.J. was horrendous, giving up 8 earned runs and not even making it past the 4th inning. The 4th! Unacceptable by a guy who's supposed to be our No.2 starter. The Yankees defense was sloppy, though they only commited one error. The bats never really came alive, with half of the runs scored coming in the 9th off of Nick Swisher's homer.
There was one bright spot of last night's game though, Sergio Mitre went 4 and 2/3 while giving up only 1 hit. He was masterful yesterday, and if Andy Pettitte doesn't make it back, he could definitely give Dustin Moseley a good fight for the replacement job.
At least the Rays lost, but they were playing the Red Sox so they pull even closer to us and the Wild Card/Division lead. C.C. Sabathia takes the mound as he tries to get his major-league leading 18th win and gives us a lead over the Rays.
