Schadenfreude 154 (A Continuing Series)

John Harper, Daily News:
It's getting more dire by the minute in the Bronx, as the Yankees, who may or may not be considering changing their name to the Walking Wounded, absorbed yet another injury on Wednesday night as well as another ugly loss to the Red Sox.

Who knew that two games into the season, the reality of the situation would make the preseason predictions of doom and gloom look tame.
Mark Feinsand, Daily News:
The Yankees were already hurting when Hiroki Kuroda went down.

In fact they have yet to appear healthy in this already distressing season. ...

The Yankees have dropped two in a row against their rivals to start the season, failing to go out to a lead in either game. In fact, the Bombers haven't had a lead in a game since Game 5 of last October's AL Division Series against the Orioles, as they never led at any time during the four-game ALCS sweep at the hands of the Tigers.
Ken Davidoff, Post:
Life presents us with warnings to ignore and warnings to heed. Storm clouds that will soon dissipate and icebergs that won't be bypassed.

In which column would you put this Yankees season so far?

With their second straight loss to open 2013, 7-4 to the Red Sox at a chilly Yankee Stadium, the Yankees looked about as inept as their most pessimistic observers envisioned. And this one can't be shrugged aside, not with Hiroki Kuroda — arguably their best pitcher of 2012 — exiting in the second inning with a bruised right middle finger. ...

Deep breaths, everyone. Read and repeat: It's two games. Two games. ...
