I think it was Eugene V. Debs who said, "Desperate Yankee losses cry out for desperate Yankee measures," and last night's brain-gouging Yankee defeat by the Host Twinkies - in another era - would have sent 10 Bobby Meachems to Columbus lashed onto the back of an open-air flatbed. When you waste a) a great outing by Phil Hughes, b) a home run by Andruw Jones and c...

With the failures...
