Man, the run for the AL East is going to be great to watch!

Well, actually, today, not for me. 

The Yankees are quite honestly getting their butts kicked down in the Trop.

Wang was taken out very early (in the second) and gave up eight, count them eight, runs.

He looked more like Sidney Ponson than Chien-Ming Wang out there tonight!

But on a good note, Nick Swisher did continue his hot-hitting ways, blasting his third homer since opening night.  He is in the running for the AL Player of the Week.

Now, the bases are loaded and Willie Aybar up facing Edwar Ramirez.

Expect more runs before the sun is down.

Oh, wait, I guess you couldn't tell if the sun was up or down in the domed Trop.

Nonetheless, the Yankees should lose.
