    That’s some bad hat, Harry.

    Tonight was a Bones/House night at our home. (By the way, if you’re a fan of House, and you missed it today, well, you missed a great one.)

    I was relegated to checking the game during commerical breaks from 8 pm ET until 10 pm ET. And, every time I flipped to YES, I either saw bad things happening against the Yankees or nothing positive happening for the Yankees.

    By the time I got to the game full-bore, Veras was pitching to Upton in the bottom of the eighth.

    Seeing the post-game, I now know that everything I saw in flashes, from eight to ten, was pretty much the story of the game – meaning it’s not a great night in Yankeeland.

    So, the Yankees are now 19-20 on the season. Last year, at this time, New York was 18-21.

    Really not much difference, is there?

      ******************************

      Last year, the Yankees were 18-21 and were 8.5 games behind.

      This year, the Yankees are 19-20 and are 4 games behind.

      When it comes to the decision, there IS a big difference, a 4.5 game difference.

      An utterly forgettable game, Steve. Pettitte got hit hard. Tampa is turning the corner.

      We’ll have to wait until the end of the season, but so far there isn’t. They seem to have arrived @ their record in a different way.

      At least the pitching hasn’t imploded yet *knock wood*

      One thing I should note, however is that last year they were underperforming their pythagorean w-l record. This time around, they’re matching it.

      Of course, the real depressing parts of last season came when they were 8 games under .500 at one point. It started bad, and only got worse.
