I don’t have any stats on this – I’m sure someone must – but haven’t the Yankees dropped series openers a lot this year? It certainly feels that way. It’s as if they have to get comfortable with a new team before they do any damage.
Of course I probably jinxed us with last night’s post about Giambi hitting a homer. Groan.
On second thought, it wasn’t my fault. It was AJ’s.
You can almost hear him muttering, “I coulda stayed in the game, but now I might have to punch some glass doors.”
He’s such a puzzle. On one hand, he became the first pitcher in Yankees history to strike out four batters in one inning. He also walked five batters in two innings. How can one guy have such a split personality?
He had help with tonight’s loss. Our offense was in sleep mode for the most part.
Not much to say except that there was a little good news: the Red Sox lost to the lowly Pirates. That made me smile.
