This was supposed to be in honor of the All Star Game winning American League, but that didn't happen yesterday. The NL killed us. Matter of fact, our only hit was from a filthy Red Sock, Adrian Gonzalez. And while Mr. Weaver over here didn't disappoint, David Robertson ended up giving up a a homer to Prince Fielder. And it always seems to happen to the poor Yankees. But the AL lost, 5 to 1. And in a way, I'm not too surprised. Because the NL was barely altered due to the Sunday rule. We lost a few strong pitchers in Sabathia, Hernandez, Verlander, Rivera and Pirce (only he was actually injured), and of course, Jeter, A-rod, Ichiro and Lester. So we were shorthanded, and the NL took advantage of that. But if this turns into a Boston-esque "Beat us every year" kinda thing, I'll give up the All Star game for good.
Tomorrow- In lieu of my two extremely busy days, I post a card of a Yankee who's also been busy lately on the mound.
