I’d never thought that I would say this, but, here goes: The Yankees could have used nine Nick Swishers tonight. Wow.

Wanger looked like Andy Hawkins out there today, didn’t he?
And, the boys in the YES booth – Flash, Kay and Conie – noted that Chien-Ming’s power sinker is MIA. So, the bad trend continues…
Oh, well, at least the Mets lost their first game in Citi Field…having to watch Duaner Sanchez and Heath Bell close it out for the Padres. Yeah, on nights like this in Yankeeland, that’s what it has come down to…in terms of trying to find something comforting…discouraging, huh?
