The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

The Good

Wang looks awesome. In winning half of the Yankee's games so far The Wang has shown no ill affects from his post season meltdown against Cleveland. A heavy sinker, good velocity and has even shown a better than usual k/9 ratio of 5.54.

Matsui is off to a nice start hitting .357 with 2HR and 6 RBI.

Bobby A - .379BA, .438 OBP

Bruney - 3 games no ER and NO WALKS! Maybe there IS something to this 'in-shape' stuff!

The Beast - 1 hit and 4 Ks in 4 IP, future staff Ace, but current bullpen dominator!

Mo - 3 games, 3 saves 1 hit and 4Ks...just Mo being Mo!

A-Rod - Before the dreaded 'Golden Sombrero' yesterday, Alex was at .320 with a .930 OPS; not blistering, but definitely contributing

Melky - His .294 average is overshadowed by his .400 OBP.

Molina - Seems to hit the ball hard every time up.

Ohley - A 3.86 ERA is ok, but he sustained a bunch of that 'taking one for the team' in yesterday's 3 inning stint in the loss

Moose - 2 starts, a 3.09 ERA; I'll take it

Farnsworth - 2.70 ERA, 3.1 IP, 5 Ks

Traber - 2.1IP, 4 Ks 0ER. Looks unhittable vs lefties so far

The Bad

Cano - .188, 1 RBI 0 walks
Damon - .200 avg, .294 OBP, 0 SB
Hawkins - 7er in 14ip

The Ugly

Betemit - 2 for 13 with 7 Ks, he looks lost at the plate right now
Giambi - 1 for 14...ouch!
Jeter and Posada - Each are out with injuries that we have no idea how long will take to heal.

No Grade

Hughes - 1 good start, 1 bad...I have a feeling that the weather has something to do with his poor outing yesterday vs KC, but we can expect more of the same (inconsistency) at least in the early going from the majors' youngest starting pitcher

Kennedy - It was a bad one, but I'm not gonna grade a kid on 1 start

Overall the pitching has been fair and the offense terrible. Sounds like 4-4 to me.
