Are the Yankees ever going to push the Red Sox out of the division lead? We win, we lose, we win, we lose. We won the series against the Rays with today’s “W,” but no matter what we do, we’re still 3 1/2 games back in the standings. It’s frustrating!
The good news is we’ve pulled ahead of the Twins for the Wild Card, so that’s something. But I’d still love to take the AL East. I’d also like to see Judge, Sanchez, Holliday (so glad he’s back), Castro, Didi and the rest of the gang get hits, hits and more hits. No more of these one or two-runs a game. Poor Sonny Gray gets no run support. I want runs, I tell you. Janer after Janer.
And I want pitching – from the starters as well as the relievers. Robertson had a great game the other night and Chapman seems nearly back to his old self. Girardi has had a quick hook with CC and Garcia, and I don’t blame him; these are all must-win games from here on.
Now it’s time again for the Orioles. They’re free-swingers but they can bash. And they’ve been on a slide. (How about the Indians, btw? Who wins all those games in a row? What a season they’re having.)
Not much else to say except it’s crunch time. I can’t believe we’re in mid-September already, but the leaves on the trees here in CT don’t lie. So let’s go, Yankees. For real.
