Bronx Baseball Daily:
The Yankees got Angel’ed last night as Dan Haren got help from the umpires and some great defense to stifle their bats and Andy Pettitte got no help from Albert Pujols, who put an exclamation point on his only bad inning, en route to an easy 5-1 Angels victory. Here is the recap and graph.
Here is what the Yankees blogosphere has been discussing.
River Ave Blues discusses the Yankees problem with the bases loaded this season. Last year they hit .337/.354/.604 with the sacks loaded, this year that’s down to .151/.222/.302.
The Yankees Analysts talks about prospect Tyler Austin and says that he could crack the Top 100 prospects in baseball this year.
NoMaas.org hates umpires and explains to everyone why they suck.

Andy Pettitte's 400th career start with the New York Yankees wasn't the worst of his lengthy career by any stretch, but that didn't stop the left-hander from showing plenty of frustrating following the 5-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. Pettitte, who had pitched stellar games against the Reds and Royals during his two previous outings, was hit for five runs on nine...

The May 31st, 2012 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels ...
In need of starting pitching last season, the Angels reached down to Class AAA and promoted right-hander Garrett Richards, asking him to make his first major league start in New York against the Yankees -- and then his second start against the first-place Texas Rangers. Things didn't go so well. Richards was roughed up in the Bronx, then suffered a groin injury in the first...
The one good thing I can always take away from all the games the Yankees lose in Anaheim is that I usually sleep through the carnage. It was no different last night, as I was ready to go to sleep even before the first pitch was thrown.So I didn't see them lose 5-1 to the Angels, their second loss in as many games against Anaheim. I didn't see them go 3-11 with runners in...
The Tuesday Takeaway
Albert Pujols went 2-for-4 with a home run in the Angels’ 5-1 win over the Yankees last night, giving him seven big flies in his last 14 games. It seems the $254 million man is going to be just fine. But the recent resurgence of Dan Haren is equally important to Mike Scioscia’s team, which will be without Jered Weaver for 3-4 weeks because of a lower-back...
In an effort to get back in the win column, I am doubling up on my beloved Yankees:
Yankees +122 over Angels / Over 7.5
Bet $150 / $100
In yesterday’s contest, these two teams combined to score 17 runs on 25 hits. There is no reason to suggest they won’t do the same tonight, especially since they were forced to use a combined 11 pitchers, weakening both bullpens. Despite...
