Yanks Lose (Again)

Someone wake up Joe Torre! The Yankees signed Roger Clemens!

Since the re-signing of Roger Clemens, the Yankees are 0-1. The Red Sox lead the post-Clemens Yankees by 0.5 games. Apparently even the great Roger Clemens can't prevent the Yankees from losing by playing golf in New Jersey.

The Yankees can sign all the 45 year old Hall of Fame pitchers they want, and they can make all the over-done announcements during the seventh inning stretch they want, but maybe they should, at some point, consider winning a game. Mariano Rivera was hittable again, this time giving up a ninth inning two out homer to Adrian Beltre, who was last good in 2004. The solo homer broke a 2-2 tie in the top of the ninth. In the bottom of the ninth, Derek Jeter and Bobby Abreu were unable to do anything with JJ Putz, even with the tying run in Johnny Damon on first. The Yankees lost (again) to the Mariners 3-2.

The Red Sox lead the Yankees by 6 games, Tampa by 6.5, Baltimore by 7.0, and Toronto by 7.5. The Yankees are two games below .500, while the Red Sox are ten games above .500.
