I just wanted to post something so I don't have to reread the same NY series post. That left a bitter taste in my mouth, but I remind myself to check the current standings. Ah, safe for now with our 12.5 lead. Not to mention, the fact that the Devil Rays and Yankees are still tied!!!
There is no doubt in my mind that the Yankees will improve, but like the Red Sox I'd like to focus on what is ahead of us. Last night's game was a tough loss. However, I have to give our boys credit. They scored on the best pitcher in the league and they played through the end of the game, tying things in the ninth. Chavez has sucked all year and Synder got unlucky or threw a crappy pitch. Still after an exhausting series in Boston and an exhausting flight to Oakland, to be able to tie it in the ninth and force extra-innings is a good sign that our boys are playing their hearts out.
Again, it was dissapointing (especially for X who was there), but I am staying positive. Especially, when the Yankees still can't get a starter at the bottom of their rotation to pitch past the 3rd inning.
