RJ Beats Up on AAA Team

This is from an ESPN chat:

Seymour, Brooklyn: So what do you think about the Yankees chances at the title with a dominant Unit?

Rob Neyer: (11:28 AM ET ) He looked great last night, albeit against what was, with the exception of Richie Sexson and Raul Ibanez, essentially a Class AAA lineup. Even if RJ's healthy, though, what about the rest of the rotation? Right now it's Wright, Leiter, Chacon, Small. The Yankees always have a puncher's chance, but considering their rotation they could also 13-17 down the stretch and watch the postseason on TV.

A "minor-league" team taking two out of four from The Great Yankees? Kudos to the Mariners. And if Boston wins tonight's game vs. the D-Rays, so much the better.

man, i would hate to be RJ. when he pitches badly, it's cuz he's old and terrible. if he pitches well, it's cuz the opposing team is AAA level.

Since when is Ichiro and Beltre considered AAA? Maybe a weak line-up overall, but with four good hitters.
