Randy Johnson showed up for work last night, punched his time clock, and got busy destroying the Yankees season. In the kind of game the Yankees got him for, he was a complete bust, allowing two home runs in the first three innings, allowing the Angels offense to get started, and once they got started, they were impossible to stop. After last night’s 11-7 loss, the Yankees find themselves hoping and praying for a second shot at Bartolo Colon.
The vaunted Yankee offense, except for a two-inning stretch, did nothing. A-Rod, Sheffield, Giambi, Jeter, pick a player. Nothing when it counted.
If Robinson Cano doesn’t hit that three-run double in the first inning of Game One, the Yankees season would be over. At one point, Benji Molina had out-homered the whole Yankee team, which says it all.
