FIFTY THOUSAND MOONS

Saturday, April 2, 2016

In their last two spring training games, the Yankees accumulate only 7 hits

Three yesterday. Four today.

Jacoby Ellsbury homered in our first at bat. Then... nothing.

Luis Severino gave up two runs in five innings - only one earned - and takes the loss.

Our biggest offensive eruption came in the ninth Friday, when Lane Adams - soon to be of Scranton - hit a two-run HR.

The other run on Friday was a solo homer by Brett Gardner; in the two games, we never manufactured a run. Just homers.

Three walks on Friday. One, today.

Of course, it doesn't matter... no, it certainly doesn't matter... soon, the games will count... one of these nights... one of these crazy old nights... we're gonna find out... pretty mama... what turns on your lights...

Get ready for more of the same during the regular season. We Yankee fans hope that nobody goes to the games and hurts the idiot Steinbrenners in the pocket book.

This isn't depressing. We're coming out of Spring Training in midseason form.

Lower case Anonymous is right. The only way to solve this is to not support the team. Attendance drops to 2.5MM, let's see what they come up with.

NY Times Magazine today: Cover story about venture capital owners of GS Warriors and their management techniques to create a championship team with staying power. Made me drool. Because the Steinbrenner/Levine/Cashman troika appears to be driven by fools, not Jeep.

Subscription might be req'd, but maybe we can get around that with this link:

I hope someone ( are you listening Mustang? ) remembers that I have already predicted that Severino will set records for losses as a starter with an ERA under 2.50.

Yesterday was simply a, " get used to it game." good for his mental toughness.

But if you don't start recalling the accuracy and insight of my predictions, I'm going to start writing fucking poetry.
