Running out of Adjectives

This Yankee team is becoming unbearable to watch. From bad hitting in important situations to not being able to hold leads, the Yankees are an all-around disaster at the moment. They don't look like they will be coming out of this drought anytime soon. In addition to all facets of the team performing awfully, the Yankees suffered another injury tonight. This injury could be devastating as Mark Teixeira left tonight's game with an injured wrist which was the same wrist that he injured in spring training and kept him sidelined for three months. Now, Teixeira will visit with a doctor in New York and figure out what the next step will be. Teixeira's health is vital to the Yankees success. If Teixeira needs season-ending surgery the Yankees season is in jeopardy if it already wasn't before the Teixeira injury.

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.
