The Yankees have lost 9 of their first 14 games this season. The last time they had a start this bad was 2005 – when they also started the year at 5-9.
That season, on April 30th 2005, Chien-Ming Wang made his big league debut. And, on May 3rd 2005, he was followed by Robinson Cano (when he got into his first major league game). That boost turned it around for the Yankees and they went on to win 95 games in 2005.
How are the Yankees going to call up this year to give the team a much needed spark? Anthony Swarzak and Nick Swisher? And, yes, I am kidding.
