One minute they win and I’m up. The next they lose and I’m down. Right now I’m the latter thanks to today’s finale against the Tigers. Ugh. Tough loss. Tough series loss. They really need to win series, not lose them, especially against teams they’re trying to climb over for a Wild Card spot. Once again, the starting pitching was worthy of a win and yet….
Can the Yankees go on a real run – i.e. win more than a couple of games here and there? The offense has to do more damage than it’s been doing for that to happen. I keep wishing we had a monster power hitter who could come off the bench and muscle one out in big situations. We used to have guys like that. Instead we acquire relief pitchers, as in today’s signing of some lefty named Josh Outman. Ruben Sierra, where are you?
Bring on the division rivals, I guess, so we can know whether the Yanks are truly in this pennant race. The Blue Jays can hit and the Red Sox, while out of the race, are always dangerous. Thank God for the US Open. Watching tennis is fun without the stress.
Enjoy the Labor Day weekend!
