So I’m watching the ESPN game and Jon Miller mentions the Yankees haven’t been getting good pitching.
“Surprise, surprise,” Joe Morgan says. “That was the problem they had last year.”
Really? The Yankees were tied for sixth in the AL in ERA last season at 4.41. They were fifth in quality starts and fourth in batting average against and OPS against. Chien-Ming Wang was second in the Cy Young voting and Mariano Rivera had a 0.96 WHIP
So pitching was “the problem” last year? Oh, and they also won 97 games.
These guys have it right.
