Here’s Jack’s “Are you kidding me?” face.
Are the Yankees bad? Right now, yes. Will they be this bad the rest of the season? I highly doubt it. They’ve just hit a rough patch and I am certain they will snap out of it.
Okay, I hope they’ll snap out it.
They’ve lost five out of their last six with Andy Pettitte’s start on Friday being the only win during that span. The pitching staff needs to step up, the hitters need to stop hitting into so many m*****f****** double plays and, actually, I think that’s it.
Raul Ibanez wasn’t signed to be the offense’s savior but so far, he has been. He put the Yanks ahead with a towering two-run shot that gave the Yankees a 2-0 lead that seemed like it would stick with the way CC Sabathia was pitching. And then, it didn’t stick. Sabathia gave up two solo home runs and walked in the go ahead run in the seventh inning.
Up next for the Yankees, the always dangerous Kansas City Royals. I mean hell, the Yanks split a series with them earlier this month so you never know what will happen this week.
