The Yankees got destroyed by the Tigers, 8-4, today to fall to 1-4 on the season. Starting pitcher/massive bust Phil Hughes got lit up for 4 runs and 8 hits in just 4 innings, and fellow massive bust Joba Chamberlain bookended the game by getting torched in the final frame. The Yankees got outhit, 17-6, and Robinson Cano the only legitimate major league starter in their starting lineup is now hitting .111 on the season. The loss keeps the Yankees mired in last place. And one more fun fact: their minus-16 run differential on the season is dead-last in Major League Baseball. Yes, worse than even the Astros and Marlins. Ha!
Oh, and the Yankees' payroll is more than $200 million.
