Schadenfreude 192 (A Continuing Series)

Kevin Kernan, Post:
Yankees' Bitter Truth: They're Broken And Not Good Enough

This is the reality of the AL East slugging the Yankees square in the jaw.

On a night they actually managed to score five runs, the Yankees still came up losers to the Orioles, 6-5 on Friday night at Camden Yards.

This is a stretch of 12 games in 13 days against the AL East and the Yankees are 3-7 over that span.

This is reality. The Yankees don't measure up in their own division.

They have become AL East patsies. They are 9-14 against the East. They are in fourth place in the division. The three teams above them — the Orioles, Red Sox and Blue Jays — have beaten the Yankees 14 of 19 times they have played this season, which is exactly one-third complete. ...

Yankees hitters are dead last in just about every offensive category in the American League, starting with batting average, at .233. They are the only team with an on-base percentage below .300, at .299. Their slugging percentage is last, at .374.

The Red Sox have scored the most runs, with 326. The Yankees have scored the fewest, with 203.

The Yankees came into the night averaging 3.7 runs per game. ...

The Yankees are brittle and broken and getting punched around in the AL East.
