Grading the New York Yankees 13-11 Loss to Cincinnati Reds

Sean SerritellaCorrespondent IMarch 1, 2009

The New York Yankees lost to the Cincinnati Reds by a score of 13-11 this afternoon. With a high scoring game, there are going to be very good grades and very bad grades.

 

A+ Derek Jeter

Derek Jeter had a perfect game going 3-for3 and scored two runs. Hopefully he'll stay healthy and have a big year so he gets closer to 3,000 hits.



A+ Robinson Cano

Cano had a perfect game as well. He went 3-for-3 with four RBI and one run scored. Maybe I should keep him in my fantasy baseball league keeper league.



A Brett Gardner


Gardner added another home run while going 2-for-3, scoring one run. It's not looking too good for Melky.



A - Alex Rodriguez

Alex hit a home run and went 2-for 3 with two RBI. He's exceeding my expectations thus far. It is only spring though.



B+ Mark Teixeira

Teixeira went 2-for-3 with one run scored. He'll have a big year since he'll be batting in front of A-Rod.



B - Cody Ransom

Ransom had an "OK" performance. He went 1-for-4 with 1 run scored.



D Xavier Nady

The whole team is scoring at will against the Reds and you contribute nothing by going 0-for-3 with a strikeout?! Come on Nady, get with the program! I'd like to give you an F but there are too many Fs to go around.



F The whole pitching staff

Not one Yankee pitcher got through an inning without giving up a run. Terrible, terrible job. All seven pitchers that were in the game gave up at least one run.

Alfredo Aceves pitched one inning and gave up three earned runs, Damaso Marte gave up two two home runs in one inning of work, Christian Garcia gave up three earned runs on three hits in one inning, and that's just to name a few. Yankees fans are lucky it's only spring training!
