That’s Baseball

That game certainly took you from the lows to the highs to the lows. The utter futility of the Yankees’ offense for eight innings, punctuated by a great home run and then Mo looking lost. As Mitchell said in a comment on a previous post “ugh”.

But, there were some very positive signs. Duncan has to be considered in the first base mix anytime a lefty is pitching and Ramirez showed that wicked changeup very well in 2+ innings. I know it is hard to lose a series to Baltimore, but since the All-Star break they are 18-13, definitely a team on the rise.

Now comes a huge test, four against the Tigers. Detroit has a great offense and we will learn a lot about the Yankees’ pitching staff the next four days.
