of the AL East.

And with only two AL teams having a worse record than them, KC & Seattle, that’s where the 8-11 Yankees find themselves this morning.

A 0-5 road trip, starting with a 3-0 whitewash in Beantown and then being swept 2-0 Tampa Bay, for only the second time in 52 series against the D-Rays.

It didn’t even help having one of the star starters back last night as Wang took the loss giving up 4 runs on 9 hits in his first start of the season.

That and A-Rod’s hitting streak ended at 18 in 2007 and 23 from last season. Still got a few days to break the home run record for April that he currently holds with Pujols, but that ain’t going to count for much if the starting rotation can’t put in quality starts and the bullpen have to keep up the amount of innings they’ve pitched so far this year.

It’s the batters that need backed up by some decent starts as they haven’t exactly failed to score during this losing streak.

Pettite to face the Blue Jays tonight and then tomorrow wunderkind Phillip Hughes is scheduled to take the mound in the Bronx. Cashman says it’s just for the one outing but if that’s a good outing can they send him back to Scranton?
