As Audrey mentioned in yesterday’s comments section, this season’s Yankees have been the comeback kids – a different mode from last year’s model. And the guys responsible for the comebacks haven’t even been kids; they’ve been the castoff veterans in large part.
I listened to the last half of the game in my hotel room in New York and once again the Yanks went into the late innings trailing until someone – in this case, Lyle Overbay – came up huge. A very positive sign.
Also positive was Hughes. He just keeps getting stronger with each outing. Are we seeing the real Hughes at last? If so, I like it a lot.
Not positive was the fact that Youkilis was out again after one day in the lineup. It makes me verrrrry nervous that there’s no backup infielder right now. I would guess Cashman needs to get on this asap. Who plays if Nix goes down? No one, that’s who.
But the Yanks swept the highly touted-but-underperforming Blue Jays and that’s cause for celebration.
