• September 27th vs. The Red Sox

    Posted by on September 27th, 2009 · Comments (5)

    You can now write story of the 2009 A.L. East standings, with six games left on the schedule…because it’s over. And, the New York Yankees have won the division, have locked up home field throughout the post-season, and have turned out the lights on the regular season for the rest of the A.L. East – including the Boston Red Sox.

    I’ll be honest…I’m a little worried about the Yankees offense right now. In their last 12 games, including this contest, they’ve scored 54 runs. But, 10 of those 54 runs came in one game where they beat up some pitcher by the name of Douglas Wildes Fister. Take that contest out and they’ve only scored 44 runs in their last 11 games. New York will have to score more runs than that in October to have some hope of getting past the ALDS.

    But, in any event, right now, there’s only one question that’s really important in Yankeeland: Twins or Tigers? And, that’s because the Yankees have wrapped up the regular season, now, and the next step is who will they play in the ALDS.

      I look forward to seeing Shelley Duncan’s name in the lineup everyday.

      Have to agree with you, Steve. The Yankees looked really flat the last week, going just 5-1 against LA and Boston. Seriously though, the offense hasn’t been all that and a bag of chips of late; but you’d have to be more worried if you reside in RSN. Just 7 runs in 3 games is pretty pathetic. And you’d have to say their bullpen was rather shaky in this series. Then there’s all the SBs they allowed.

      Are we really gonna pick out negatives after the last 6 games we’ve won? This is what good teams do. They find a way to win even when the hitting isnt there. The bullpen may have looked “shaky”, but not as shaky as Boston and Anaheim. Their bullpen couldnt pitch out of the trouble like our guys did. All 5 of our starting rotation pitched quality innings against 2 of the best offensive teams in the majors.This team flat out found ways to win. Soak it up guys..you’ve earned it.

      Now, you’re just fishing for things to be negative about, Steve.

      The Yankees win 100 games, clinch the AL East against their biggest rivals, sweep the Red Sox, and get home field advantage, and you’re worried about their runs, even though they still won five of their last six?

      There’s being a realist, and there’s being a Debbie Downer. I appreciate your realism most of the time, but I think we should just enjoy today. No need to fret about the runs.
