Well, since I last posted, a lot of things happened in Yankees Universe. On Monday, Dustin Moseley wasn't great, going only 4 and 1/3. He had given up 4 runs, and Girardi had seen enough. He took him out and brought in... Javier Vasquez. I know, I know, it's him. But he was actually very good, going 4 and 2/3 innings and saving the bullpen from getting depleted. He got the win, while giving up only one earned run and striking out 6 on the way.
Teixeira, Cano, and Thames all hit home runs in that game, and Trevor Cahill, the supposed Cy Young contender, was horrible. He gave up 8 runs and pretty much stopped talks of the coveted pitching award.

With Phil Hughes on the mound, I was hoping he could get his 16th win, which would be the second most in the league. Imagine it, later in the year, you could see this headline. C.C. and Phil, 20-game winners, and the 2 most wins in the AL.
Alas, it wasn't meant to be as the Blue Jays beat the bombers 6-3. Phil Hughes started the game by giving up 2 runs early, with Vernon Wells being the catalyst, having a triple and scoring on a past ball. Then, in the third, he hit a 2-run shot making the score 4 nothing.
However, in the top of the 4th, the Yankees used some of their own firepower, with Marcus Thames homering, scoring Robinson Cano. But then, in...

Well well well, what can I say? The night after Jose Bautista hit 2 home runs and absolutely showed off; mocking Cervelli by fist pumping; and then came at Nova with a bat, thus causing a near brawl; the Yankees repaid him. How, you ask? They did so by scoring 11 runs on 17 hits and keeping the homer happy Blue Jays, homerless.
Mark Teixeira started the scoring by having an RBI single in the first, but he wasn't over. After Nunez got an RBI groundout to score Jorge Posada, Teixeira came up again and he went DEEP to left to make the score 3-0 Yanks. Robinson Cano followed up with a walk, bringing up Thames; who would also hit a home run to left, where 4 of the 5 Yankees bombs went....

The Yankees quite frankly, dominated the Mariners yesterday. C.C. was a beast, the offense had 3 home runs, and we won the series, 2 games to 1. To start the game, C.C. didn't give up a hit until the 5th, and I was wondering, with the rain, what would happen if Sabathia was throwing a no-hitter, however the rain delay was too long for him to come back out. This reminds me of David Cone's perfect game, but that game's rain delay was only 33 minutes, whereas this one's was 57 minutes. Seeing what Girardi has said about near perfect games or no-hitters this year, (remember C.C.'s almost no-hitter on April 10, when Joe said even if he had gotten Kelly Shoppach out he would've taken Sabathia out of the game).

Look at the picture, have you ever seen that man holding the ball?

With the pitching match up being A.J. Burnett versus Felix Hernandez, you kind of knew that the opening game against the Mariners might be a loss. Might be. Well look at the picture.
That man in the background is Russel Brayan, and today, he killed the Yankees. He started the game by hitting a 3-run home run, and then later in the sixth hit another home run. The Yankees got shut out by Hernandez, so there isn't much to talk about. Casey Kotchman and Ichiro Suzuki both had RBI's with them coming in the 3rd and 4th.

Well, it seems the Yankees just love to mock me. I wrote about how the Yankees bullpen was being as good as ever, and then the next day they give up a run. I wrote how the yankees offense had come back, and then they score 9 runs, making me have to think long and hard about a title for my next post; and yesterday, they scored 11 runs, 11! That meant I had to think of yet another title about how to describe the offense; with 9 of the runs coming in the 6th! Unbelivable. Well, on to what actually happened in the game; it started with yet another home run by Miguel Cabrera, which was his 4th this series and 31st overall this season. However, Phil Hughes calmed down giving up a hit in...

Well, the yanks game could be described by one word: rain. There were two rain delays that amounted up to a total of 2 hours and 41 minutes. Dustin Moseley, the yankees starting pitcher, didn't do so well. He went 4 and 1/3 while giving up 8 hits and 4 runs. Now, was some of this due to the rain? I don't think so, seeing that he gave up the runs in the second inning, before the rain even came, and from there on didn't give up a run; but, since there was a rain delay for so long, it was the cause for Joe Girardi to pull him out of the game after the longer delay of the two.
