What stands out the most in my mind, this past week, is that, if not for having to face Doc Halladay in one game, this could have been a perfect week for the Yankees. Still, while 6-0 would have been sweet, there’s nothing to apologize about when you go 5-1, right?
Yet, it was a “close” week for the Yankees – three one-run victories and three walk-off wins within those five victories. One could make a case that the Yankees were lucky not to go 3-3 this week. It will be interesting to see how the next two weeks go for New York – and where their record is on June 1st.
It would be nice to have a bit of a cushion in their record by then – as, to start June, the Yanks have to play Texas, Tampa Bay, Boston and the Mets. And, that’s going to be a tough road. Therefore, it would make sense to try and pile on some more wins over the next two weeks.
