MLB: NY Yankees Lose 24 – 4 to Indians in the House that Ruth Didn’t Build


OUCH!!! Think the Yankees might want to go back to The House that Ruth Yikes2built?

It would appear that the new $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium is hardly providing much of a home field advantage to the Bronx Bombers these days. The Cleveland  Indians scored a record 14 runs in the second inning, most ever against the Yanks ever in any inning, on their way to destroying the Yankees, 24–4.

Asdrubal Cabrera hit a grand slam and an RBI single in Cleveland’s 14-run second — the biggest inning ever against New York — and the Indians set the bar for Yankee Stadium’s new record book, coasting to a 22-4 victory.

Could you imagine paying $2500 for a seat to watch this? Well, I guess if you were from Cleveland it would be heaven.

The Tribe actually trailed NY 2–0 after the first inning and then when on to scored 12 in the second, 1 each in the third and fourth, 4 in the fifth and single runs in the eighth and ninth inning on their way to the colossal blow out.

Yankees’ ‘ace’ is in hole: Chien-Ming Wang

Check out the pitching box score for Yankee pitching in the early going of the baseball season. YIKES … HOLY COW!!!


New York Yankees
C Wang (L, 0-3) 1.1 8 8 8 0 1 1 52-34 34.50
A Claggett 1.2 9 8 8 2 2 2 60-34 43.20
E Ramirez 2.0 3 4 4 3 4 2 58-34 8.44
J Veras 3.0 1 1 1 1 2 1 43-26 8.53
D Marte 1.0 4 1 1 0 1 0 23-14 21.00
Totals 9.0 25 22 22 6 10 6 236-142

The Yankees find themselves with a .500 record in the early going and with a roster salary that almost equals the price of their new ball park. Bring back the House that Ruth built.

      Betcha once Obowma’s henchmen (and henchwomen)
      get a hold of that salary schedule they’ll make it look
      like a tax tornado ripped through it.

      not sure what this has to do with Obama but Im sure you can spin anything into a critique of him…

      On a baseball note.I think that the Yamkees problem is that they think that they can just throw money around and the team will just be good.The players have no chemistry.They are all pitchmen for one product or service.I think the players do not give real efforts and think that they can just put on the Yankee uniform and the “Yankee Magic” will just kick in.Proof that money is not the problem solver are the Marlins.They have the lowest payroll in baseball and the best record in baseball.

      The Obama reference is to the fact that they all make over $250K and will be on the Obama tax hit list.

      Yanks problem is they have lost the vision of what makes up a team. When they were winning World Series they had players that were team men, not high $ players.

      Alex Rodrigues is the kiss of death.

      A large payroll does not make a team. It is no different that when creating an All-Star team or Olympic basketball team someone has to spread the ball to other players to shoot.

      Yanks have lost the vision, the very one that the Red Sox have gained over the last couple of years.

      Go Marlins! Fresh faces and attitudes, when the players get too big for their britches clear the house and start over. Kind of like term limits for ball players. Maybe we should try that in congress and senate.
