Did we give up?
But we always worked things out
And all my doubts and fears
Kept me wondering, yeah
If i'd always, always be in love

Let's look a the positives from yesterday:
The Jays got out to an early 4-0 lead
Menechino has a 0.00 ERA

If you want to know more you can read the game stories:
Jays left stranded vs. Yanks - Fordin
Yanks jolt Jays for nine in ninth - Ryan
Blue Jays hit bottom - Rutsey
Bronx Bombers hammer Blue Jays - Millson

Catcher has different take - Fordin
Mixup caps off bad day - Rutsey

* Rich Griffin is fired up today in Jays making it easy for Yanks to hurt 'em.

Reasons to get mad as a fan? There was Alex Rodriguez, the first to cross the plate ahead of Ruben Sierra's grand slam, waving towards Reed Johnson, who flipped the ball into the stands, already calling for the 300th home run ball to be retrieved for his teammate. Obviously, individual milestones were uppermost in Yankee minds, not the game. Do that pseudo-leadership crap from the dugout with a phone call. You're competing.

A-Rod stepped in for the first time since leading the call for Sierra's memento. Was he forced to move his feet or lean back ... or worry about anything? Nope. He smoked a Ligtenberg pitch into the stands. That was the end of the reliever's horrendous day.

* Today's Game - Mussina vs. Batista, 1:05 pm. I'll predict less than 7 total runs today.
