Too much money on the Yankees…what else is new?

In three games played at the new Yankee stadium,Guest Posting the NY Yankees have been outscored by a total of 37-12. And yesterday’s completely outrageous result even had the baseball pundits at a loss for words.

The 14 runs given up by the NY Yankees breaks the Major League Baseball record for most runs scored in the 2nd inning. That record stood for over 100 years before Yankees RH pitcher Chein-Ming Wang took the mound yesterday afternoon.Wang got pounded yesterday. He was charged with eight runs and eight hits in a little over an innings worth of work giving him a 34.50 ERA in three starts this year.In an Interleague game with the Houston Astros last year, Wang injured his foot while stepping across home plate. The Yankees would have to place Wang on the DL for the rest of the year; and, the Yankees pitching staff was never able to recover as the Yankees missed the playoffs for the first time in a number of years.

Nevertheless, the Yankee organization was very optimistic about Wang’s future with the club; and, with his foot 100% healed…Wang was expected to return to form and have another solid year in 2009. His first start was kind of shaky against Baltimore, but giving up 7 Earned Runs in Camden Yards is not completely out of the ordinary. The Orioles usually play the Yankees tough; and, final scores go waaay over the posted total more often than not.But, when Wang gave up 8 Earned Runs to the Rays in the first couple of innings, the Yankees pitching staff should have seen the red flag. Wang was obviously not capable of pitching in a Major League Baseball game and his sinker ball had no movement. Nevertheless, Yankees manager Joe Girardi put Wang out on the frontline yet again with only a round of ammo against an Indians team that took no mercy on the struggling right hander.
