3/19 Spring Training Game

The Yankees got beat 9-1 by Toronto today.

The hot Jeff Karstens took the mound after snowballing some hype for the 5th spot. Unfortunatley for him, he didnt pitch as well today as he did others. In 4 1/3 innings he allowed 6 hits resulting in 4 runs. It wasnt a shock as he doesnt have the stuff to be consistanly dominant.

Chris Britton also pitched for the yankees only to be belted. I asummed after looking at last years stats he was a lock for the pen but he has been disspointing in evry sense of the word as he let up 5 runs and only managed 1 out.

Although both Karstens and Britton were bad Proctor, Bruney, and Henn were all good each pitching a hitless, shutout innings.

The yankees didnt get much going offensively. Their only run came on a double play by the always bad Minky. Cano was the lone bright spot with a double. Minky is now hitting 077 this spring with phelps looking very good. Can you say 1st abse controversy?
