Hey, look at the bright side. The Yankees paid Darrell Rasner a lot less in this game to pitch brilliantly and lose 2-1 than the Mets paid Johan Santana to pitch brilliantly on the same day and also lose 2-1.
O.K., that’s about the only positive thing that I can think to say about this one. With 101 games left to this season, the Yankees are now 24-31 this year when playing teams not called the Seattle Mariners.
This Yankees team has a long, and tough, climb uphill just to get to the point where you can call them decent…and a bigger one to get to being called good.
