It’s only two games

The Yankees in the last two games:

3 runs
15 of 68 (.221)
2 walks
11 strikeouts
0-9 with RISP
1 home run

Could today be bust-out day? Meanwhile stealthy MVP candidate Derek Jeter is 9 for 20 on this road trip and is up to .327 with a .392 OBP.

Meanwhile, two things to note from the division. Dustin Pedroia left the Red Sox today to be with his wife for the birth of their first child. Good luck to him. And Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon dyed his hair jet black. The Rays are having a “Ring of Fire” road trip. The players all have to dress in black as they travel and Maddon is paying tribute to the great Johnny Cash.

Last year Tampa had a trip where they all wore Ed Hardy t-shirts. How great is that? Every manager, at least the good ones, knows how to keep his team loose. Maddon certainly finds unique ways.

UPDATE: 5:59 p.m.: He’s a photo of the “new” Maddon:
