    A-Rod, Damon, Rasner and Girardi talk about the Yankees tough loss last night. The video via SNY.tv:

    Johnny Damon makes an excellent point. The Yankees offense does need to start showing up earlier in these games – and allowing the Yankees pitchers to have some room to work. Otherwise, the whole nut falls on New York’s pitchers to win the game – with little margin for error. And, that doesn’t work for guys like Ponson and Rasner…and sometimes Mussina.

    And, with the way the Yankees rotation is set-up now…with Ponson, Mussina and Rasner all lined-up in a row…the potential for more three-game losing streaks is there…unless the bats start scoring more runs during the first five innings of a game.

      Did Girardi explain why Betemit was allowed to face a lefty instead of Sexson?

      In fairness, and you may have touched on this in a previous post, Rasner did well last night. Quite a frustrating game.

      Yes you did mention it.

      Also, it doesn’t matter who’s starting, as long as you have 3 games in a row, you have the potential for a 3 game losing streak.
