Sidney Ponson -- Fat Sid -- blanked the Yankees, today. He ruined a pretty nice outing by Mussina: the Moose went 7 innings and allowing only 2 runs. The game was 2-0 until the 9th, when Torre brought in Mariano Rivera to keep it close, and got rewarded with Rivera's worst performance of the year: 4 runs, a homer to Raffy Palmeiro, and only one out.
The Yanks' impotence against Ponson, after only managing one run yesterday, and the Big Humiliation of Which We Shall Not Speak on Tuesday ... these are the bad times.
Stay tuned, and keep the faith.
