I looked at sunday;s lineup. it looked more like Scranton than the Bronx.
then that lineup gets 16 hits.
going into Friday's game, the yanks had statistically the 2nd worse bullpen in baseball.
the bullpen was to be their strength.
ugly leaving men in scoring position in extra innings.

Food for thought from DN

But seriously, for all of Stanton's struggles, the Yankees have still managed to average 5.5 runs in their first 10 games, which ranks fourth in baseball. This despite Gary Sanchez getting off to a 2-for-32 start and the early injuries to Greg Bird and Aaron Hicks, who is slated to play his first minor-league rehab game for Triple-A Scranton on Tuesday, and could be back by this weekend in Detroit.

Plus, Stanton started off his NL MVP campaign in 2017 slashing .226/.300/.415 over his first 14 games. He proceeded to hit four homers in his next three games before going into a 3-for-34 funk. Again, this was a year in which he changed his stance during the season and finished with 59 homers and 132 RBI. He's streaky. He's trying to figure things out. By comparison, J.D. Martinez is hitting .226 with a homer and four RBIs for Boston.

This thread is about the Yanks, so it doesn't include my self imposed ban until may 30th. lol

There's still 152 left, so not worrying like some. I still say it would be nice to win this series at Fenway to let them know: "We'll be in the race all year long with you guys for 1st place in the east."

Mark Feinsand-
Here's why I laugh when people talk about how big a series in April is: In 2009, the Yankees lost their first eight games to the Red Sox and trailed by five games in late-June. They won the AL East by eight games.

As a Mets fan who doesn't hate the Yanks, you can't just homer your way to the WS anymore. It's not the late 90's. The pitching is much better overall and you have no name guys throwing 96. Yanks need pitching to win consistently. Can't rely on 3-4 HR's every night.

They have a solid rotation and a good bullpen that has just, so far, underperformed.

5.5 games out now.
Time for the Yanks to start playing like we belong in the same sentence as boston

Go atleast 7-2 on this homestand, I mean hell boston is 13-2, and we cant go atleast 7-2 on the home stand??? combined with fridays win that would be 8 wins in last 10.
That's a start.

Need help from the hot Angel, and cool off those bastards from boston. Takes atleast 2 of 3.

I was starting to worry about the pen with the starters not even going 5 innings, but with the 2 snowout in Detroit, and Sev doing his thing, the pen is a none issue now.
