    [Randy Jackson voice] “Hmmmmmmm. Aw right, aw right, yo, check it out. I dunno dog. Me for, I dunno. It was, well, it was kinda weird. Yeah, it was just really strange, for me. I’m just keepin’ it real, dog. Yo, it was weird.” [/RJV]

    This game left me feeling like a confused Randy Jackson. It was not a good night in Yankeeland. Mussina struggled. The Yankees left 10 runners on base. Jeter got banged up. In the end, New York still just lost by two runs. This should sting, right? But, it (the outcome) doesn’t hurt as much as it seems like it should – to this fan. Maybe it’s because last night’s game was so bad that this contest, albeit still a loss, feels like it’s an improvement (of sorts)?

    I know, it seems bizarre to say that. But, yo, dog, I’m just keepin’ it real.

    Big game for Igawa tomorrow – with Ranser facing Bedard on Sunday. If Igawa pitches like Pavano, Pettitte and Mussina, did before him, there’s a good chance that the Yankees may be looking at a 1-4 start to this season. On the bright side, it could be worse. Johan Santana is scheduled to pitch on Sunday for the Twins. So, the Yankees will just miss facing him on Monday – when New York might just need a win in the worst way.

      I kind of feel the same way Steve. But I still feel out of sorts.

      (warning: shameless plug ahead) I went in to a bit more detail on why in my game recap.

      We started 1-4 last year too if you forgotton already, and people were calling to send CM Wang to the minors after April (4.80 ERA)

      Who gives a damn, so the Yankees lose a game because they had like 6 hard line drivse hit right at the O’s defense. and because all their hits didn’t string, it’s not gonig to happen everytime.
