    Do you know how many times the Yankees have scored 5+ runs in one inning this season? Just once – yup, uno..as in one time. Do you know how many times the Yankees have allowed 5+ runs in one inning this season? The answer is seven times.

    Here’s how A.L. teams have done, so far, this season, in terms of having and allowing the big inning:

    Team	     5+ Scored	5+ Allowed         Diff
    Rays		8	      2		 6
    Indians		7	      3		 4
    A's		7	      3		 4
    Red Sox		4	      2		 2
    Tigers		6	      4		 2
    White Sox		6	      5		 1
    Twins		5	      5		 0
    Angels		2	      3		-1
    Orioles		1	      3		-2
    Mariners		3	      5		-2
    Royals		2	      5		-3
    Rangers		5	      9		-4
    Blue Jays		2	      6		-4
    Yankees		1	      7		-6
    

    If you have any questions as to why the Yankees record, and place in the standings, is what it is today, here’s your answer. It’s the big inning – something the Yankees bats can’t muster and their pitchers cannot avoid.

      [...] Me? All I can think about…watching those “plays” by Jeter, Damon and Abreu in the field is something that I wrote about yesterday…and, seeing that seven-run first inning by Baltimore on the line-score, reminds me of something else I wrote that same day. [...]
