Big Unit's Lament

I'm sure that when Randy Johnson forced a trade from the Diamondback to the Yankees, he thought that he was going to a contender and his days of pitching complete game and despite only giving up one or two runs still losing were over. Turns out he was wrong. Last night Johnson pitched a two-run complete game and still lost to Toronto's Roy Halladay who threw a shutout. Incidentally, the Yankees are in 4th place in the AL East looking up at the 3rd place Blue Jays while the D-Backs are tied for first with the Fighting DePodestas out in the NL West. This could have massive Ewing Theory potential. A-Rod has already become the new Ewing already (3 HR game aside; hey, Dmitri Young did that opening day) and now Johnson is adding to it. Plus Jaret Wright is hurt. Poor Joe Torre.

A recap of teams above .500, a mark the Yankees are not at (just because I can):

Atlanta Braves

Arizona Diamondbacks

Baltimore Orioles

Chicago Cubs

Chicago White Sox

Florida Marlins

LA Angels of Ridiculous Names

LA Dodgers

Minnesota Twins

St. Louis Cardinals

Seattle Mariners

Toronto Blue Jays

Washington Nationals (who are really the Expos, remember)

Also missing: Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros, and NY Mets. Eat that, media machine.

I am going out of town for a week starting tomorrow. Whether I will get a chance at Internet access will remain to be seen.
