August 26th @ Anaheim

The Yankees need a day off.

The team put up an admirable fight today. However, our biggest (and perhaps only) weakness was exposed by Anaheim: the inability of our 4-5 starters of going more than 5 innings.

For two days in a row, our starter hasn't pitched half a game. It's the kind of thing that has been killing Scott Proctor and Ron Villone all year.

But hey, let's talk positives. Octavio Dotel, ignoring the stat line, tossed the ball pretty well today. Mariano Rivera and Kyle Farnsworth are rested. Alex Rodriguez... managed one good at bat to finish the game.

Let's go Gil Meche!
