The New York Yankees: The Most Confusing Team In Baseball

I swear every time I watch this baseball team, I get very confused. I was excited after game 1 of this series with Philadelphia after the hitting completely dominated Roy "Doc" Halladay, who many consider, including myself, the best pitcher in baseball.

Then the Yankees go on and lose to pitchers, that I called father, and son. Jamie Moyer, and Kyle Kendrick.  I just don't get how a team that is the highest paid in baseball gets completely shutdown by a 47 year old who throws an 81 MPH fastball.  Sometimes I think I am watching the Mets, not the Yankees.

Next day arrives, and then they get shutdown by a guy who looks like he's 10, and this guy has been pitching horrible all season. 

Sometimes I think the key to pitching good against the Yankees is being the crappiest pitcher in baseball.  I mean how else would you explain players like Brett Tomko, and Carl Pavano shutting them down last season?

I know I am complaining here, and the Yankees have the best record in baseball, but I am getting sick of the no run support for anyone except Hughes. 

Just once I'd like this team to play to their paycheck, of course if they did that, the Yankees would be undefeated every year.

The last thing I want to see is the Mets make the Yankees look like... well, the Mets.
