I didn’t think the Yankees would win their first series of the season in Detroit. The Tigers were a red-hot team and we were not. They had David Price and we did not. They had “winner” stamped on them by all the sportswriters and we did not. And yet, we came out of D-Town with the series win. The pitching was great. The hitting was alternately powerful and just crafty enough to score a couple of runs. And the defense seemed to have come together. All of which was remarkable given the cold weather there. (I must mention that it snowed today in CT. I was not amused. It’s April 23rd after all.)
Will the winning streak be a fluke? Will the even-hotter Mets cool us off? Or is this team, weaknesses and all, just good enough to stay competitive?
No idea, but the Detroit series made things interesting enough for me to stay tuned.
