May 23 @ Boston L 9-5

Terrence Long sucks. Oh dear god, he sucks. He probably missed two if not three balls in the outfield that should have been outs. He allowed a key runner to advance by throwing to the wrong base. He didn't even manage a hit off of Keith Foulke, who allowed five straight balls hit hard enough or nearly hard enough to be home runs.

This was the one pitching matchup that really favored us. Wang looked great for some of the game, but was not able to keep the ball low in the zone near the end of the game. The Yankee defense (*cough* Long) didn't help him out, but Wang allowing all those hard line drives and fly balls isn't helping himself.

We need to take an unexpected win in this series. We cannot lose three games. Steve at WasWatching.com believes that there is a chance at Steinbrenner taking a shot at firing Torre if the Yankees continue to lose. I don't see that happening, but I can dream can't I?

Maybe that last inning against Foulke (who we absolutely own, don't we?) sent a message to the Red Sox. Gary Sheffield may be in the lineup again tomorrow. Wouldn't it be nice to see Damon-Jeter-Sheffield-Rodriguez-Giambi again?
