Yes, I am aware that the Yankees lost the game 10-6; and that for the second time this week the Yankees share first-place with their current AL East hosts.
|Last 7-days - 08/29 - 09-05|
|vs. Orioles - 09/06|
Looking back on 2012, the Yankees didn’t claim first-place in the AL East until June 11, or 59-games deep into the season.
Games became irritating to watch until the Yankees started playing well.
The Yankees looked invincible until that dreaded July 18th West Coast trip where everything that could go wrong did.
And the Yankees find themselves here once again but please don’t throw in the towel just yet.
See if my theory proves correct, and if timing really is everything than the Yankees bats are close to getting scorching hot.
It was the first time I was actually overjoyed to see the Yankees leaving-men-base (LOB) because it means they are hitting the ball and starting to see pitches again.
Another positive is that the Yankee hitters did not lose to the Orioles last night, as you can chalk that one up to the bullpen.
Mind-you this is a bullpen that saved the Yankees from total implosion in May and June so they are allowed a bad outing or two without blame here.
Let me cut to the chase and admit that something happened to me as I watched the Yankees lose another game in Baltimore last night.
Call it a ‘Pinstripes Miracle’ of sorts, as the general uneasiness and disappointment the Yankees have forced upon their fans as of late just disappeared.
Instead a wave of comfort and assurance rushed over me as if something great is about to happen.
So with my new unforeseen mood, there will be no criticizing the many Yankee issues today.
Instead I am going to have believe in what I saw, which would mean the Yankees are about to get red-hot once again.
