The fourth bullet point from Corey’s recap says it all: the Indians are a lousy team and the Yanks should absolutely sweep a team like this. But you can throw that right out the window whenever David Robertson and Joba Chamberlain come in to a game.
If you watched this game, there’s nothing that I can say in my recap that can describe the embarrassment that each and every Yankee should be feeling when they go out to dinner tonight. If you didn’t watch this game, be thankful because it was pathetic.
I’ll end with this: when it appeared as though Chamberlain was the presumptive #5 starter, I spent the entire off-season making the argument that he belonged in the minor leagues to start the season (for a number of reasons that I don’t need to rehash at this time). Now that he’s a reliever I’d argue that he should be sent back to the minor leagues simply because he’s just not a very good pitcher anymore.
