I've seen some beatdowns in my time, but this.....My God.....
Fourteen runs given up in the 2nd inning???
And the final tally adds up to the Indians embarrassing the Bronx Bombers 22-4??

Wang (0-3) was charged with eight runs and eight hits in 1 1-3 innings, giving him a 34.50 ERA in three starts this year. He went 5-0 with a 3.23 ERA in six April starts last season.

“Actually, I thought he threw more good sinkerballs today but that inning got out of hand and we need to fix that,” Girardi said. “We have some time. We have a day off I think Thursday and we’re going to have to decide what’s best for Chien-Ming Wang and the team.”

The Yankees could skip Wang’s next turn in the rotation but Girardi said the team hasn’t made a decision yet.

Peralta doubled in two more runs after Wang left and Asdrubal Cabrera hit a drive to right on a 3-1 pitch for his first homer of the year. Sizemore followed Cabrera’s shot with his fourth homer to make it 14-2 as the crowd booed loudly.

And yet, that's not the half of it.......

By then, the party was on in the Indians’ dugout.

“There’s some funny stuff that’s said,” DeRosa said. “Obviously Garko made the first out and didn’t want to make another out in the same inning.

They're the best team money can buy.
They've got a new, 1.5 billion dollar ballpark.
And the Tribe smacked them around worse than when Ike smacked around Tina.
The Yanks really do suck this year, don't they?

Jonathan do you know how long the second inning lasted? I have sports to write about as well if I ever get some sleep to clear my head.
