There is a reason why the Yankees signed Feliano from the Mets in the offseason. Boone Logan is NOT the lefty relief answer. If he was the Phils would have kept him. Mitre is a BUM. Again I ask why Joe why? They dumped this clown on the Brewers for Dickerson then buy him back. Why? The guy is pitiful. I’ve watched the O’s 1st round draft pick Dylan Bundy down here in Oklahoma. That 18 year old has better command and know how then Mitre. Release this bum & get Nova back up here NOW.

Sorry Seek, Nova’s more valuable staying stretched out as a starter!

And Logan came from the Braves!

Looks like we got outplayed all around tonight. I’m always nervous when the Yankees get so many hits and runs like they did last night because they usually have nothing left in the tank the next night and play a stinker. They’re going to have to get it together for the Rays. This could be a real critical series depending on what the Sox do.

I knew we would get 3 in that 9th…we hit the ball hard this whole game and the indians played like a 1st place team…just outstanding defense…logan and MEAT TRAY gave them an additional 3 runs in 2 innings and that lost the game…Cleveland is hurting on offense also….MEAT TRAY walked the whole team and Logan (I will hit the first batter)…gave up a homer to a rookie with 2 outs nobody on of course…bad ab by posada early in the game with the infield back…2nd and 3rd, 1 out and he strikes out…thats should of been a run…

It looks to me like Logan could be as good in the second half this year as he was last year!

We have a few more weeks to see!

Looks like we’ve lost this series to the Indians. Where’s the offense? You can’t win a game with only 2 runs unless your starting pitcher is going to pitch lights out. We have opportunities to widen the lead over the Sox and Rays but fail to do it. By All Star game we could be sitting in second place. Hughes seemed to have pitched a fairly good game after coming back. Was it Mitre and relief that cost us the game tonight? I just got in and only catching up on Gameday.

I like that The Meat Tray, cracked me up.

Well unless there is dramatic 9th inning comeback there is a virtual tie for first now. Yankees have to be concerned about its pitching, starting and middle relief. After CC there has to be concerns, altho right now Colon and Garcia have pitched well. After Robertson there are question marks in middle relief. Cashman NEEDS to be working the phones to store up those areas. July 31st is right around the corner.

Boy does that crappy inning by MEAT TRAY hurt now…first 2 on and no out with swisher up….would of been tying run

Why the *ELL in God’s name does this team have Sergio Mitre on its roster? this guy is the reincarnation of Javy Vasquez for God’s sake. Send Nova downstairs and keep Mitre on the roster? Are you kidding me? GET rid of #45, he STINKS and get Nova back upstairs.

I see Girardi got his 8th inning guy in there at just the right time….THE MEAT TRAY!!!…Nice…
