New York Yankees: Four times is not a charm

The New York Yankees are once again playing with fire, as for the fourth time in a week they are tied atop the AL East with the Baltimore Orioles.

Losing in walk-off fashion, 3-4, to the Red Sox is about the most feasibly cruel way this game could have ended.

Skipper Joe Girardi looks like fire might come out of his ears but you can’t really blame him.

Inevitably Girardi’s job security will be in jeopardy if the Yankees are not playing baseball in October, on top of having to endure such a draining second-half.

Why doesn’t Joe Girardi inject some of the youngsters brought up when the rosters expanded?

Does Girardi know I am referring to the group of guys in Yankee uniform, who are sitting on the extra folding chairs to the right of the dugout?

I am specifically referring to starting Chris Dickerson who would bring some much-needed oomph to what looks like a bunch of deadbeats.

Ohhhh what’s the point anymore?

The bottom line isthe Yankees better start to hit the ball NOW.

It is the best way this 2012 Yankees team can win games.

Last night the Yankees stranded nine runners on base but drew eight walks, which in the light of everything I see as a positive.

So if this team is as predictable as I think they are, the bats should hit their stride within the week, and start to consistently hit for a month.

And you can book that.
