Bad News in the Bronx

By Dustin Racioppi

It's a month into the 2009 season and Cablevision assures me that there's no problem with the cable because I could swear that each game I put on is a re-run from last season. But no, the cable guys tell me, The Yankees are still losing. And yes, they are losing in the same fashion as they did in 2008, with inconsistency and a sub-par bullpen that looks like each member's arm is going to fall off.

The recipe is the same: When the pitching is good, the Yankee bats are anemic. When the bats are hot and the Yankees score runs, the pitching staff can't keep the ball in the park. 

The result, I fear, will be the same: The Yankees spent the last two years playing catch-up well before the All-Star break and got lucky one year and actually made it to the playoffs. After falling to Tampa Bay Wednesday night, the Yanks dropped a game below .500 and, even though Joe Girardi said during the post game that the one thing you can't do is panic, well, it's time to panic because 2009 is shaping up to be a catastrophe. 

In fact, if anybody should be panicking it's Girardi because he could soon be spending his time like a majority of America — looking for a job. 

If this trend of not being able to win continues much longer, we'll have to rename this new Yankee Stadium "Yankee Mausoleum." But nobody's showing up there anyway. Not even the Yankees.
