Same lame line coming out of the Yankees locker room for the past 2 weeks..how many times can you tip your cap to the other pitcher before you realize that the real problem is that the yankee line is gawd awful when it comes to scoring runs!
It has as much to do with the opposing pitcher as it does with the Yankees punchless offense. If this team holds on to make the playoffs they will be beaten into oblivion and embarrassed again on a national stage.
"how many times can you tip your cap to the other pitcher before you realize that the real problem is that the yankee line is gawd awful when it comes to scoring runs!"
Is that why we're fifth in the league in run scoring?
<Don't you wish they'd just be honest with the fans and themselves?
"We f*ckin' suck. We're facing guys with ERA's in the mid 4's and we can't string together 2 or 3 hits to save our lives. We'll just show up tomorrow, lace up our boots, and try to knock the next kid out of the game early...."
I don't care how "good his stuff was"... When a team scores 3+ runs 42 consecutive games....and then THIS happens for 11 games...the pitchers didn't get better....your hitting got worse...stop pretending it's the former...
I think the difference is the hits and timely bullpen pitching that the team was getting during their winning of games has now dried up.
The hitters are not coming through in close games and the bullpen is losing the close games.
Thus the difference and why all these losses have been by 1 or 2 runs.
The starters have still held their own, barring CC against the Red Sox the other day, but the hitters and bullpen have slipped in the clutch.
you guys lost 8 out of 11 in 3 days?!?!?!?
I agree with you though. Yankee fans are front runnin cry babies.
AINT IT GREAT?!?!?!
For them to cry is takes one loss in a row. For them to puff out their NY chests it'll take a single win. A poster said something like "we're NOT the 1978 Red Sox". Well, we all know that '78 RS team was banged up over the 2nd half and the NYY had become healthy and slowly ate away at that 14 game lead. The RS lost out on the WS that year in game #163 by 1 run.
2012 could duplicate some of that, this time with the Yanks losing key guys. Pettitte, Tex, ARod are big hits for sure. Generally, the Yanks fill them in seamlessly. We'll be seeing how this time plays it out.
And while the RS are pretty far back, there are other teams out there with talent. The Os are what, 6.5 out now? With 9 weeks to go and with 9 head to heads left with BALT? Not to mention TB and Boston. Could be wild.
These Yankee fans are a buncha delicate flowers. One musn't upset them too much or they'll wilt.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm gonna go pee in the garden.....
