CC Sabathia held back after Astros' Brett Oberholtzer throws at A-Rod (VIDEO)

Houston Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer got rocked early by the New York Yankees on Saturday, allowing a grand slam to catcher Brian McCann and a two-run dinger to outfielder Chris Young — all before he was out of the second inning.

Without A-Rod in the Yankee lineup, should anyone expect more than three hits?

Some basic rules of life.1. When showering with Satan, don't bend over to pick up the soap.2. When gazing up to heaven, you're most susceptible to getting your throat slashed.3. When your No. 3 hitter is Brian McCann - batting .260, with the lightning speed of Ethel Merman needing to pee - don't expect to score runs.OK, nothing personal against McCann.. but No. 3? Yikes.

New York Yankees: best and worst of the week

However, the downward trend is starting to kick in, as they were on the losing end for the last two. Let’s take a look at the best and worst performers of the week.

Just Off A Sweep of AL-Best Royals, Yankees Can't Master AL-Worst A's

I just started reading Greg Prato's book,  Just out of Reach--The 1980s New York Yankees,  about the decade when not much of anything around the Yankees made much sense. Seems as if not much makes sense around the 2015 Yankees either. In case you missed it, the Yankees returned from a 2-7 road trip, dumped three straight at home to a mediocre Texas team, only to rise from those...

Royals Drop Four Straight, Swept By Yankees, Lose 4-2

About a month back, the Royals wanted to fight everyone while having a, “Royals Against the World” type of attitude. Now, they are struggling and no longer in sole possession of first place. When you check the standings though, you’ll see a team that is 28-18 and 6-4 in their last ten games.   Chris Young pitching in Yankee Stadium sounds like a terrible idea. In...

Jacoby Ellsbury Turning Into The Leadoff Man The Yankees Hoped For

As May Begins, Yankees Still Waiting For Some To Hit Their Stride

The month of April is in the books, representing just shy of 15 percent of the season. On the season the Yankees record stands at 13-9, a .542 winning percentage. That translates to a full season record of 88-74, perhaps good enough for at least a wild card berth. While we can assert that it's still early, which it is, we can identify some early season trends.   The Good The...
