If Its Not One Thing, Its Another

The Yankees won today, ending a two-game mini losing streak, 8-7. However, it was 7-2 at one point. The offense finally showed up today, despite Jorge Posada, Robinson Cano (to start) and the 2008 MVP Jose Molina being out of the lineup. A-Rod hit a homerun, tying Ted Williams on the all-time list. Robinson Cano also homered while pinch hitting for the former attorney general in the eighth inning. The Yankees also got a quality start from Ian Patrick Kennedy, which was something that was much needed. So, seems like a good night... except for the bullpen. Billy Traber entered in the seventh inning, and gave up a two run homer to Carl Crawford. Brian Bruney also allowed a homer, and the bullpen as a whole gave up four runs in three innings. The bullpen had been good up to this point, so hopefully today was just an abberation.

I think Bruney will be fine. He was missing his spots big time yesterday though.

I agree that Bruney will be fine, I'm just saying that last night, the bullpen sucked, despite good performances from the starter and the offense.
