We'll have to take the split

I guess a split with the Yankees in a four-game series in April isn't the worst thing. But after taking the first two games of the series (and winning 5 straight) I was hoping for at least three out of four. We were done in by Chien Ming-Wang on Sunday, but encouraged by CC's solid outing. Then last night, we were done in by a bunch of infield singles by the Yankees in the 6th inning. Aaron Laffey did pitch 5 no-hit innings, so that is something to take away from this one.

I'm still more than a little concerned about Travis Hafner. And basically the entire bottom of our batting order. But I'm hoping we can escape April at .500 by taking the next two from the Mariners tonight and tomorrow night. Fausto gets the start tonight and then the amazing Cliff Lee looks to continue his hot streak tomorrow. I like our chances with those two guys on the mound. Hopefully they can get some support from the bats.

Laffey was solid in his spot start Monday night
