In the Hands of the Bullpen

Kei "Shades" Igawa's line today, as the Yanks go for 3 of 4 from the Twinkies: 5 IP, 5 ER, 7 H, 3 BB, 3 K. And one 5-2 lead blown.

I really miss Phil Hughes. Sometimes, late at night, it's like he's there in the room with me. I call out his name...but he never answers.

UPDATE: And on the flip side, the bullpen goes 4 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 5 K. Outudueling the Twins' bullpen is not the way I expected the Yankees to win this game.

Game ball to Hideki Matsui. It must feel great for him to come up with a big hit.
