Schadenfreude 96 (A Continuing Series)

June 29

Mark Feinsand, Daily News blog:
7:15: If there was any concern about Hughes not being sharp after his nine-day layoff, it's no longer a concern. A scoreless first for Hughes ...
Brian Costello, Post:
Well, at least Phil Hughes kept his inning count down.

The Yankees starter had his worst outing of the season ... Hughes gave up a season-high six earned runs and a career-high 10 hits in 5.2 innings in his first start in 10 days. ... [T]he pitcher who has been nearly unhittable on some nights this year was battered by one of the worst-hitting teams in baseball.
Feinsand, Daily News:
Seattle, which entered the game ranked last in the American League in runs scored, rocked Hughes for seven runs in 5.2 innings. ...[O]ver his past four starts, the 24-year-old's ERA is 6.29, making this more than a one-start issue.

Jay Greenberg, Post:
Hernandez, who threw a complete-game, two-hit shutout in the Mariners' 7-0 win over the Yankees last night at the Stadium, would have been untouchable in any year. That includes 1927, and 1961, let alone 2010, when it hasn't necessarily taken such wicked movement on a fastball for a pitcher to get the better of the Yankees' better players.

Derek Jeter has an on-base percentage of .346, 30 points below his lifetime average. Mark Teixeira, who had the only well-struck hit last night, is hitting .231. Because Jorge Posada has been hurt so much, the only number fair to report may be his age, 38. ...
July 2George A. King III, Post:
The Yankees flushed A.J. Burnett's best outing since May on the way to a 6-1 loss to the Blue Jays in 11 innings that was witnessed by an impatient Yankee Stadium crowd of 45,729. ...

Chamberlain's inconsistent season continued in the eighth. ... After the final out, Chamberlain was heavily booed as he left the field. ...

[The Yankees lineup] is 0-for-21 with runners in scoring position and hasn't had a clutch hit since the ninth inning Tuesday ...
Roger Rubin, Daily News:
And with a lineup built to provide fireworks fit for Independence Day weekend, the Yankees shot off nothing but duds. ...

The Yankees are 7-8 and have averaged 3.7 runs over their last 15 games. ... The guts of the lineup - Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano and Jorge Posada - were a combined 1-for-17.

I was waiting for another one of these. Thanks.

The only problem is that when I really start reveling in their woes, they go on a winning streak.

And we have enough woes of our own. I get little joy from Yankee pain these days, given our own circumstances...

It is always good to enjoy their misfortune.

Seize joy wherever it is found. Last night's win was a joy. Being 0.5 GB is a joy - in of itself, no matter how long it lasts or doesn't last. And NYY Schadenfreude is its own special joy.

The team-on-the-DL is awful, but today, right now, we are only 0.5 GB!
