While the Yankees offense is having a groovatious Spring Training, the pitching has been less than stellar. Far less, to be exact.

The Moose had a pathetic outing on Monday, and yesterday's game against the Twins was even worse pitching-wise. The Wangster gave up 6 earned runs, walked two, and didn't strike out a soul, and later in the game Rasner allowed 4 ER in 2 innings. The offense did their best to help Wang and Rasner out by scoring 8 runs - including a homer by Abreu and a grand slam by Porter (don't worry, no one knows who the F that is, but way to go, kiddo!), but they still lost 8-12.

A team's Spring Training record may not matter, and generally speaking the performance of the players during ST doesn't necessarily mean that their regular season action will follow suit. All the panickers out there proclaiming Wang is dunzo need to simmer down and remember that it's better for him to be working out the kinks now rather than at the beginning of the season. That doesn't mean it's not a tad disconcerting, but panic-worthy? Methinks not. With the exception of some sub-par post-season gigs, Wang has been dependable and steady for 3 years now, which is more than we can say about a LOT of the other pitchers we've had to suffer watching.

On a positive note, the offense is still rockin'. I'll have to give out some more YCPOSTTF awards later today.
