A Mini Yankees Rant

Hi Ya’ll! This is Veronica making my FIRST post on this blog. I am Super excited to finally get around to writing for you all! Unfortunately this first post comes on the heels on yet ANOTHER low point in the yankees season.

Does anyone have an explanation as to why this team is so bi-polar? I mean for Christ’s sake! We win seven in a row, look like a formidable team again and now lose five out of the last six games to fall in the division?

It is absolutely brutal to watch this team. Its become a mind bang! The starting rotation should be much more solid than it has been by this point in the season.

Nathan Eovaldi allowing eight runs in less than ONE inning is unacceptable! This man needs to get it together, or the Yankees need to get rid of him. His earned Run average is atrocious, and a disgrace. Same can be said for CC Sabathia.

I really hope Ivan Nova is the answer to the pitching problems. I dont have high hopes for that being the case, but the Kid is talented and threw really well the year before Tommy John surgery.

It feels like the only offense we can count on these days comes from Mark Teixeira. Brett Gardner has looked like a fool hitting in the leadoff spot, and I dont think Ellsbury’s return (who knows when that will be with his fragile ass) will impact things that much. Brett shows so many great signs early in the year with the bat, then goes into his frigid cold streaks. Is he even batting .270 anymore?

The Yankees Are Winning Again

What An awful 13 days of baseball from the New York Yankees. We just witnessed them go 1-10 in 11 games before the most recent two.

It was fairly brutal to witness, experience, and be a part of to say the least. Me and Veronica tend to live and die with each pitch, so you can imagine we must have 9 or 10 lives. We did a lot of dying, for those who didn’t pick that up.

The Bombers went from 4.0 games up in the American League east, to now tied for first with Tampa. And were even 1.5gb at one point just two days ago.

But, happier times abound and the faith is starting to creep back into the surface as they have now won 2 straight games against the league’s best team. The Yankees erupted for 14 runs last night, and the pitching FINALLY held a lead.

Tonight Adam Warren pitched a very solid 6.1 innings of only 2 hit ball. Yankees took the victory 5-1 on the back of Big Tex, Mark Teixeira.

Mark started the fray with a two run homerun in the first and a two run triple in the sixth inning. Funny seeing him get a triple, but we’ll take it!
