Yankee bats are nearly silent

Maybe it's the injuries, maybe it's just one of those things, but the Yankees aren't scoring. 3 runs total in the last 2 games doesn't cut it in the American League.

Phil Hughes has been called up from Scranton to start tonight's game at Comerica Park. I'm hoping he can go 7 innings to allow the battered 'pen a rest. But it comes back to the offense. It takes a 4 spot every game to be in a game today, it seems. The days of 3-2 and 2-1 pitching duels are rare and vanishing quickly.

A-Rod is still making prgress with his rehab, and while May 15th is still the predicted day of his return, fans hope it will be sooner.

Go Yankees

Well, they woke up for an inning. And how about Hughes? Great work for the kid, maybe now they'll take their time getting Wang back on track.

Hughes really looked good. However, I want to see how he does against a quality lineup.

Burnett can't hold a 6-0 lead...freaking pathetic.

@ Chris: Hughes looked really good. Mixed up his pitches, and got ahead in the count.

@ Josef: Burnett had a bad game at the worst possible time. I wouldn't write him off.
