Yankees Hilarity Meter: May 30, 2013

HIGH

Just when everyone thought the Yankees would still be able to make the playoffs with their craptastic roster of cast-offs and former stars, they lost four in a row to the historic baseball laughingstock that is the crosstown New York Mets. The Yankees have now lost five in a row and seven of nine to fall out of first place — and it's not as though regulars such as Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay are going to improve as the season goes along.

Oh, and the Yankees' payroll is more than $200 million.
