This is probably the worst thing that culd have possibly happened for the Yankees. All of our competitors won and Rivera blew the game in the 9th. Not only this but Ponson really didn't pitch that well. He only struck out one and walked four. His defense saved him a number of times as well. If we`d gotten a win it would`ve been fine but we didn't. So now Ponson will get another start before Kennedy or Aceves gets called up. The offense was totally shut down as well despite Cashman's changes.
We desperately need the offense to come alive today. The odds are against it with Lackey pitching but they`ll need to score some runs. Rasner may be pitching for his job again and it would be a crime to send him down and have Ponson stay up.
