Yankees lose a tough one

Andy Pettitte pitched well, and got them into the 7th inning, but once again, the offense was so puny they only pushed across 3 runs with 7 singles and a double. It's easy to blame Joba for the loss, as he did give up a 3 run HR after walking 2 batters, but it really was a cheap shot onto the RF porch. I don't mean to sound apologetic, and I'm not, but again, the Yankees need to put some offense up. 3 runs in a game does not cut it in the AL, particularly with a power team like the Yankees. With Posada and A-Rod still on the DL, it does hurt, but this is a team loaded with All-Stars. No excuses accepted. Many teams would be happy to boast a lineup with Damon, Jeter, Giambi, Abreu, Cano, Melky, and Godzilla. They are loaded even without Jorge and Alex.
Finally, some good news. It is thought A-Rod can start working out today. He may even make a start or 2 in Trenton or Scranton before returning to the big club.
Today, Wang (6-0) starts against Lee (5-0) in a match of unbeaten starters at the Cathedral. Game is on YES at 7:05.

Go Yankees
