I could watch Aaron Judge hit tape measure homers all day long. Talk about bombs. The flip side of Saturday’s bomb against the Pirates that even elicited a tweet from Dave Winfield was yesterday’s strikeouts and the team’s overall offensive futility against Ivan Nova of all people.
Part of me was glad to see Nova pitch well and I’m sure he was really up for facing the Yankees. The other part would have preferred a win, of course. When we only manage to scratch out a run, it’s disheartening.
Back to the positives, this team has shown a lot of guts the way they come back from being several runs down. They don’t give up, and I love that.
This week should tell us even more about what they’re made of. We’re facing the Red Sox at Fenway, the team that’s supposed to win the division, maybe win it all, so let’s see how we measure up. If we’re lucky, Greg Bird will finally fly.
