Well two games in the book and its two in the loss column for the Yankees. What in the world are the Yankees going to do? It seems as though they never will win a game.
This is the one problem with being a Yankee fan: you consistently have to worry about everyone jumping the boat as soon as the team loses a few games in a row. Now, it its important to get that first one on the board, but no one should look at these two losses as a sign of things to come from the Yankees. It just so happens that Sabathia and Wang had back-to-back bad starts. You would hope for more from the top two in the rotation, but sometimes these things happen.
Today it's A.J. Burnett on the mound and the hope that he can show up and give the Yankees the solid start that they need. It could get messy, as even though Burnett holds a 7-1 career record against the O's, he also sports an ERA of 4.97 against the Birds.
Here's hoping that Burnett's debut works out a little better than Sabathia's and that the Yanks might get a strikeout from a starter finally.
