It is insane to think if the league ended today Lady Loves Pinstripes would be post-season bound and Double G Sports would not make it.
Well, Double G Sports is kicking my butt right now, as my two heavy hitters Arod and Werth are both killing my batting scores. The Yankees are winning, thank god and Arod has been awful considering he was my first pick. Werth and the beat-up Phillies are sure to turn it around at some point.
Double G Sports has the three hot New York batters in Jose Reyes, Rob Barajas and Robinson Cano. He also has the struggling Mark Teixeira who looks worse each at bat and potentially might be moved until the injured Yankees return.
The Yankees knew what they had to do coming into the new Target Field. Following a disastrous two weeks of unlucky injuries and evident struggles, some wins were needed.
Hopefully, the team’s confidence is up after taking the first two games against the Minnesota Twins.
The Yankees are not the most graceful group right now, but they have pulled together enough to win. With Granderson and Posada returning shortly it will help relieve some pressure.
Fact is the Twins are a great ballclub; so beating them is not easy for any team. The Twins ‘M & M boys’ (Mauer and Morneau) are by far the best 3 and 4 hitters in the game and lead in most batting categories league-wide.
AJ Burnett and Andy Pettitte rocked on the mound in both wins. It was a far cry from just a week ago, as everything seemed hopeless so it was a comforting turn.
David Robertson was solid in relief for the third time, which is a good sign for the bullpen.
Derek Jeter, both offensively and defensively, has been superb. He looks locked in right now. The Captain is such a natural leader, and he plays the part to a tee. This team needs their Captain, and he knows it.
