Yankees Starting Pitching Could Always Be Worse

The New York Yankees pitching has quietly been really good this season, it could get a lot worse. The Yankees come into player yesterday with a team ERA of 3.88 including a 27.00 ERA from Cesar Cabral, 22.50 ERA from Chris Leroux, and a 18.00 ERA from Dean Anna. What got me thinking of the Yankees pitching staff was what happened on this day in 2005.

On this day in 2005 the Boston Red Sox beat the crap out of the Yankees, there is not other way to put it, by the score of 17-1. The Red Sox beat us so bad the scoreboard went blank for a few minutes because the operator could not keep up with the Red Sox barrage. Boston had 27 hits, one shy of the Yankees record for hits allowed, which were the most collected by the Red Sox since tying the team record of 28 in Hune of 2003.

The ironic part about it all is that Carl Pavano was on the mound on this day in 2005 and on the mound in June of 2003 when the Red Sox beat the crap out of the Florida Marlins.

I said all that to say this. We got the crap beat out of us by our division and most hated rival and we still won the division that season. So what if the Yankees give up a run or two or twelve, we will be there when it matters. Patience Yankees family.
