It behooves the Yankees to beat "not good" teams like the Rangers, especially when they have a really good team named the Royals coming in to town afterwards.-I'mGivingYouARaise
While it may have behooved the Yankees to beat the Rangers, Pineda, Carpenter, and the defense essentially "dehooved" their chances last night. Yes, "dehooved" is not a word. It should be though, cause last night was just brutal to watch. The Yankees have had offensive struggles lately, so scoring nine runs and losing is just a righteous kick in the teeth. The vaunted bullpen, which was damn near untouchable in April, has been lackluster as of late. David Carpenter, who seems to give up runs whenever he's brought it, is on the list.If we are to take any positives from yesterday it's that the offense scored nine runs, Slade Heathcott has a stellar first outing, Alex Rodriguez tied Babe Ruth on the all time RBI list, and that's about it. Slade deserves more playing time, so keep giving it to him.
