Today is Polling Day

Over here in the United Kingdom, I have the chance to vote for the first time in a General Election and for the record I am a follower of the third party, the Liberal Democrats. Therefore it has been a very long day traveling back to my home constituency to cast my vote. This has led me to be grumpy and upon getting in I watched last nights condensed game and am not a happy bunny.

As Neil has already written, the Yankees are just not clicking at all and Robinson Cano's shocking error on a routine double-play ball just hurts. I know it is only one error, a big one, but still just one error but it just seems to be the way things are going at the moment.

Sean Henn had good stuff but after that play you could tell his head had dropped and he started to get hit hard. His fastball had some nice life to it and his slider has good movement but as with his change-up, the placement isn't up to major league level yet.

Henn has already been optioned as Tanyon Sturtze is coming off the DL. It says a lot about the state of the Yankees that getting Tanyon back is actually a really good thing. He is probably the best reliever on this team when you take Mo out of the equation, what is that all about?

This team is not very good. It would be good but there doesn't seem to be anything there. Maybe last years capitulation in the ALCS took out more than we previously thought.
