Yankees don't suck

For Boston it was less "veni, vidi, vici" and more "we came, we saw, we got beaten up."

Larry Mahnken tackles the "we're better than you are" question and concludes that things are closer than they look.

In addition he would also seem to have the last word - at least for now - on New York's shaky starting rotation:
Mike Mussina's September ERA is 1.20, Orlando Hernandez's is 1.88, Jon Lieber's is 2.96. They gave up a combined 5 runs to the Red Sox this weekend.

Next person to complain about the Yankees' rotation gets a punch in the face.
You have been warned...
