Yeah, I know, going 14-12 in your last 26 ain’t terrible. But, when you take out going 5-1 against the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees record in their other games is 9-11 (during that 26 game span).
It’s been a rough four weeks in Yankeeland.
Yes, there have been some injuries. But, Andy Pettitte only missed one start with his elbow issue. Therefore, the Yankees starting pitching has no excuses. And, Granderson has been out – but he wasn’t doing anything when he was in there either. Ditto Nick Johnson. Ditto Chan Ho Park too. What does that leave? Aceves, Swisher and Posada.
So, does that mean this Yankees team can only play .500 baseball when it’s missing Alfredo Aceves, Jorge Posada and Nick Swisher? Really?
