The New York Yankees.
At Coors Field on a warm night.
Against Josh Fogg.
And, what do you get?
Only 5 of the 26 batters that face Fogg reach base.
You either have to tip your cap to Josh Fogg or suspect that the Yankees, after a 48-hour layoff, were caught back on their heels by a Rockies team who has been playing great for a month now.
I’m going with the latter.
Here’s a little fact for you: On May 17, 2007, the Yankees were 9.5 games out of first. Today, after this game, the Yankees are now 9 games out of first. Therefore, in the last five weeks, the Yankees have gained only one-half game in the standings on the Red Sox.
When you think about that, in terms of the big picture, and then see Josh Fogg man-handle the Yanks, it tells you that New York cannot allow for games like this one to happen.
