Yankees searching for offense

I need to hustle up, finish my stories and catch a plane.

Not much to report from the postgame scene. Torre and the players said they were positive the offense would come around.

“I know we’re going to get better and I know we’re going to put a streak together,â€? Torre said. “Every time you win, you think this where it’s starting right now. But it hasn’t happened yet.”

Perception is not always reality. The Yankees went into the day hitting .276 and had scored 211 runs, the most in baseball. But they have scored three or fewer runs in five of their last seven games and lost on each occasion.

Now come six games against the Mets and Red Sox. Plenty of Yankee-haters will arrive at Shea Stadium tomorrow with shovels prepared to throw dirt on them. But you may want to hold off.

“Doesn’t this happen every year?” Ozzie Guillen said. “The Yankees have a bad spring and then when you look up in August they’re in first place.”
