What a weekend

Saturday, the Yankees stunk up Yankee Stadium with a terrible 22-4 loss as Wang got lit up. The next day, with AJ Burnett on the mound things looked better, but then the Indians mounted a comeback, and with the lead at 3-2 in the 7th inning, they had the bases loaded and one out. Oh no, not again.

Enter Albadelejo.

And this time, Girardi's call to the pen worked, as he shut the door and picked up his first win of the year. Bruney then came on the register a hold, and Mo nailed it down with a perfect ninth.

Posada belted a pinch hit home run, and the Yankees managed to come out with the win.

Homers continued to fly out of the Stadium, as a record was set for the most HR in the 1st games in a new stadium, ever. It seems as if a ball hit to right center just sails out. Talk already is that an engineer may be called in to correct this flaw. Hopefully, not until after A-Rod gets back and gets going. Right center is his favorite place to hit the long ball.

Go Yankees

A-Rod must be chomping at the bit thinking about that wind tunnel out in right field.

Great thing about baseball is you play the next day...that 22-4 loss didn't really mean shit. Yankees won the next day and split the series.

@ Josef: Exactly. It bothers the fans more than the players.
