Game 80: Dang, I missed the halfway point by one game.

Hughes (3-7, 4.82 ERA) vs. Lake Deduno (4-2, 3.32 ERA)

Ugh, I'm not sure if the demoralizing defeats were worse back when the Yankees actually had a scary lineup, or if its worse watching Gardy trot out what I assume (without being able to see) is a Jared Burton with a lingering health issue followed by a Deunsing who can't get righties <em>or</em> lefties out night after night. I think the latter is worse when taking into account the number of pitchers on the roster.

On the bright side, the Yankees and Twins are similarly behind the leaders in their division, so we got that going for us.
