May 18 vs Texas L 6-2

We just weren't destined to win tonight.

As both a fan and critic of the Yankees, I have a tendency to get worked up over every loss. You know something, we're going to lose some games.

Joe Torre showed unusual discipline in the 9th, allowing Villone and Erickson to eat up the inning so he could rest his normal bullpen guys. Erickson showed us all why no one would sign him to a major league contract over the winter. Straight fastball, 87 Mph sinker, and no control. Luckily, word on the street is Dotel could be ready by June.

After playing stellar defense prior to this series, Cano blew the game today. These things happen, but they don't get less frustrating.


Anyone see the outlier?
