That's Strike One

At least as far as Sergio Mitre's chances of holding down the 5th spot in the rotation for Andy goes.

7 runs allowed, 5 earned, in just 4.1 innings?  That ain't gonna cut it, kid.  Especially not against the lowly Royals.

Now I'm not going to start sounding the Ivan Nova alarm just yet.  I'd be willing to give Mitre another strike before re-considering his role.  We'll see over the next week if the Yankees feel the same way.
