The Yankees Won a Game!

Not that it’s been that long since they won a game. It just felt that way tonight against the Blue Jays, especially after Reyes’ leadoff homer against Kuroda. But Hiroki settled down and pitched well, and Robertson got the save after having been AWOL for a week.

What to make of this team? They looked so awful lately. The defense was embarrassing and the offense has been, as John Sterling put it, “sporadic.” Plus Chase Whitley came back to earth and Phelps was back to being a guy who isn’t a front-line starter and Nuno…well, there’s not much to say there.

Still, as the Yankees get tomorrow off in preparation for the series against Boston, the rest of the division has problems too so if the heart of the order would start hitting and we could snag a decent starter and Brian McCann would find the bat he left in Atlanta, things might be all right. I’m still hopeful.

    The defense was the scary part of that series, Jane. Glad they have a day off today and HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY, DEREK JETER!!! Now we play Boston…I know they are doing badly this season but things always change when these 2 teams meet. There’s so much history and even the new guys seem to get it very quickly. Let’s hope The Yankees bring a broom…and their gloves and bats. GO YANKEES!!!

    The defense was definitely scary, Diane. I was wondering if Jeter’s mind was on his big birthday and everyone asking him about it during this series, but I think he just had a brain freeze a couple of times. Also it seems clear that Solarte has gone from a godsend to a liability, poor guy.
