Yankees Lose to Mariners, 9-2

Yes, they lost to Felix Hernandez, but they lost because Joe Girardi has only scrubs in the back of his bullpen, and because he arranges his bullpen management by the inning and whether the Yankees are ahead or behind and not by how likely they are to win the game.

You would think that after watching CC Sabathia devour the M's last night, that the pitchers would have decided that, yes, it is possible to throw strikes.

I'm disappointed, but the Yankees won the series.

Usually, that's enough.
