Jeter and Meatballs

In the 1980s, the Yankees only had one good pitcher, Dave Righetti, and their pitching staff was known as Righetti and Meatballs. Now, they have one good hitter - Derek Jeter - and he's not playing again this year. (I'm not counting Raul Ibanez, who isn't going to get a hittable pitch from a righty again.) The best thing for the Yankees at this point might just be to get shut out again tomorrow and Wednesday, to really emphasize what kind of housecleaning is in order. The hitting coach, Kevin Long, has go to go, the Yankees have to let Swisher walk, see if they can get anything of value for Curtis Granderson, and put Joe Girardi on notice that things have got to change. A good team doesn't get shut out for 20 of 21 innings by a team's #3 and #4 starters and their shaky bullpen.


  1. I can't stand the Yankees... but I can't help but like The Captain. Hopefully he comes back 100% in 2013.

  2. Your wish pretty much came through. Hopefully there will be a major housecleaning. But who's going to take Arod?
