The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

April 28, 2010

Robinson Cano has been one of the few bright spots for the Yankees this year

The Yankees have hit their first losing skid of the season, losing four of their last five games, the last being a humiliating loss to the Baltimore Orioles, 5-4.

So with that, I’d like to shed some light on some of the good things I’ve seen over the past 19 games, some of the bad, and definitely, the ugly parts of this 2010 Yankees season. Read the rest of this entry ?

Consider the Mets, then, to be the anti-Yankees. If you’re a free agent and you haven’t heard from the Mets, you might want to make sure your cell-phone service (or that of your agent) hasn’t been canceled.
