"Yankees hit a record 3 grand slams in a rout of A's" (Associated Press, August 25, 2011) ... to lose the series to the A's (59-71) in New York by only 2-1 instead of 3-0. In this context, I wouldn't necessarily say that the Yankees have it all together this week.

Another headline that could have been used and would have conveyed more information would have been, "Despite hitting a record 3 grand slams in one game, the Yankees have their worst series against the A's since July 1, 2007." They need to better than that to win the pennant. Just sayin.

I actually wore my A's hat to work today.

The stupid Yankees radio people were talking about how bad Coco Crisp was this year before the game. He then went out and hit two home runs and had 5 rbi.
