Teixeira or no Teixeira, this flawed team has to figure themselves out before they dip under .500 and the crap really hits the fan. A once promising start to the road trip has turned into the Yankees trying to avoid a six game losing steak against a team that hasn't reached the .500 mark all season.
CC Sabathia will be on the mound to try and stop the skid at five. However, the Yankees' jobs don't get easier as Jered Weaver makes the start against them for the Angels who are going for the sweep tomorrow. The Halos are feeling like they are playing with house money so there's no pressure on them in tomorrow afternoon's game. For the Yankees it's a hands on deck as they continue to find ways to lose on a road trip to forget.
