• May 13th vs. The Tigers

    From The Lohud Yankees Blog :

    “We’re just not getting hits,” Derek Jeter said. “Every season it’s the same thing. There are periods when it seems like you get a lot of hits and other times it seems like you can’t find a hit, but that happens every year. If you could figure it out, then nobody would ever struggle.”

    I don’t think I could put it any better. Over the course of 162 games, every team goes through a rough patch. To get through it as a fan, I always remember the old baseball axiom, you’re never as good as your are when you’re winning and you’re never as bad as you’re when you’re losing.

    That being said, I didn’t watch this game because I was at work. Since I didn’t see the game, I won’t regurgitate the box score since I’m sure everyone reading this has already peaked. I will say this though, I really hope that Jeter doesn’t miss any time due to a Verlander HBP to the hand because a lineup that features a 6-7-8-9 of Thames-Golson-Winn-Pena is the formula for an extended losing trend.

      “you’re never as good as you are when you’re winning and you’re never as bad as you’re when you’re losing.”

      Very true. I’m glad you reminded me of that, because everything about this game just sucked.

      I look forward to when May’s session of the Dead Bat Society concludes.
