The Yanks took Beckett's embarrassing performance last night (5.1 IP, 9H, 3BB, 9ER) in stride, and when the dust had cleared they were up 9 runs against the big red beaver. However, the bomber lineup will be icing a series of bruises this afternoon from Beckett's divaball. What's a divaball? Its a combination of a fastball and throwing said fastballl directly at anything in a Yankees uniform.

Meanwhile, "Big Philly Style" Hughes is right where Beckett wishes he still was as a pitcher, upping his season record to 4-0 with a 1.69 ERA. I know Girardi said Hughes was going to have to prove he belonged in the starting rotation, but this is ridiculous.
