Tyanks if there is any time in a baseball season where a 4-game losing streak is no big whoop, this is it. And remember that the game that started it was eminently winnable but Girardi didn’t want to play regulars in both games of the DH.
That’s right, Trisha, all the chocolate will be mine! Exciting. When we made our bet I thought it would be tough to thread the needle between my $ bet on the Socks getting under 95.5 wins and winning our over 89.5 wins chocolate bet.
If you don’t mind, I’d like to wait a few weeks to settle up. I don’t want all those Ritter Sports flying across the country in hot weather.
I think it would have been different had he not had that thumb injury. I think that was more significant than was reported, given the time off he needed and still having to have that tape on the bat to keep the pressure off his thumb.
I knew the thumb injury would be a problem…….but I didn’t think it would be this big a problem. Other players are going to have to pick up the slack. Swisher has to do a lot better this time around and Tex has to hit like the player we paid for. I expect big things from Granderson and Cano – and Jeter. Alex may have a moment or two, but physically he’s beat up.
Trisha, they’ve been playing the regulars who just aren’t hitting. I’m sure the Yankees will win tonight. They always win when my dad goes to the games and lose when I go, like Monday. As you know and most people on here, I dislike the Rays more than the Sox.
tyanks, that why I said I understood why you would want the win tonight.
The regulars may not be hitting but I don’t think that’s cause for worry. They’ve been here before and know how to prepare for the postseason. This is staying in practice and nothing more. Swinging the bats, getting work in the field. It’s batting practice. Which it is meant to be.
If the Yanks were playing a team that wasn’t trying to win the wild card, they may have won the last four games.
