The 09 Chien-Ming Wang Act Is Getting Old

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Last night the Yankees were dependent on their former ace to bounce back, find his old form. Sitting at 0-6 on the season versus their rival they were hoping to avoid further embarrassment, to restablish their division lead and mostly to reestablish a pitcher their hoping will return to be double digit game winner. All of this hope was shattered, and shattered quickly.

Instead of regaining form, Chien-Ming Wang was his typical miserable 2009 self. He gave up hit after hit and even threw in some walks for good measure. He lasted just 2 and 2/3s innings giving up 4 runs via 6 hits and 3 walks. The 2009 Wang has been so bad that giving up 4 runs in 2.2 innings actually lowered his ERA.

The Yankees valiently fought back later in the game against the Red Sox bullpen, but the damage had already been done, and the Red Sox and their fans are laughing and loving every minute of their 7-0 record versus the arch-rival.

For Wang this makes it back to back poor starts after his return to the rotation. How much patience can the Yankees have with their former ace, especially with Phil Hughes waiting in the wings? How long can you deal with a 14+ ERA and Zero Quality Starts?

There isn't a Yankees-Sox rivalry in the division anymore. It's Rays-Sox until the Yankees can put together a coherent effort.

Thats arguably the most retarded comment ever made on this site.

So what your saying is from the time Babe Ruth was traded there was no Yankee Red Sox rivalry because the Red Sox never really stood the chance to win.

The Rays are 6 games back, the Yanks are 2 despite losing all 8 games to the Sox.

Celebrate now but don't make cocky retahded statements.
