Yankees 35, Spankees 13
Guaranteed your Tuesday was better than the Texas Rangers.
Josh Hamilton back on the disabled list. Another reminder why they can never ever trust Vicente Padilla. Allowed a 7-run inning to the Yankees, biggest against them all season. Even TV analyst Tom Grieve suffered a hamstring cramp during the telecast.
After four games so far this season, it's not unfair to say the Rangers don't belong in the same class as New York. Cumulative score: Yankees 35, Rangers 13.
This one looked hideously familiar. Padilla hit batters. He balked in a run. The Rangers' defense failed to turn a key double play. The offense produced its only runs came via a home run.
One game doesn't denote a trend. Does four?
