When 21-4 Isn't a Blowout

Wanna know why we have to keep scoring runs no matter how large our lead? Why did we have Pettitte keep pitching through 6 full innings despite being up 14-3 after 5 innings?

Well take a look at that fat oaf pictured on the left. That's why. With "relievers" like Brian Bruney and his 9.45 (!) ERA in his last 10 games, no lead is safe.

Torre wanted to bring him in today's 21-4 win and I had to call him (on my iPhone) and tell him NO! He had the bum get up twice in the bullpen; both times I called and told him to sit his fat butt down.
