April 21st vs Baltimore L 6-5

Another loss. Not a bad loss, but a loss. I wouldn't be too worried about tonight. A few of the close calls go our way and we easily win that game.

Positives: Jeter continues to "party like it's 1999", Sheffield had a nice night, Matsui had his first big game in awhile.

Proctor looked good for a little bit, until he started to walk the ballpark. He's allowed 9 walks in just over 11 innings this season. If his control problems don't recover, he will end up looking a lot more like the Scott Proctor we all know and hate. At least he's eating innings for now.

Was it just me or did Wang fall apart each time he had to pitch out of the stretch? That is something that Guidry needs to address. He looked good until he fell apart in the 6th. He just lost the strike zone with men on base.

Andy Phillips is quickly proving pundits like myself wrong. Maybe he can't hit at the MLB level after all. Refer to my a prior post of mine about our need for a real DH.

Oh well. Now the onus is on Chacon tomorrow to keep the Yankees in the game tomorrow.

Amount remaining on Joe Torre's contract: 12,572,839 dollars
