And The One Game Winning Streak Hits A ......



In the last two games, the Yankee offense has posted, on average, 1.5 runs per game.

Do we still have a hitting coach, by the way?

I see our new man, our first base savior ( though it is not his natural position ), Tyler Austin, only struck out 66% of his at bats.

But he is still hitting 200 points behind the guy we jettisoned.

Progress such as this can cause wars.

Now let's fast forward to the ninth inning.

Joe Girardi was at it again, eh?  He put on his thinking cap.

Our "favorite failure" is called upon to hold the Rangers in check, because there is still a remote chance of a Yankee rally ( the odds of coming back, down three runs in the ninth , is about 17% ).

Before any of us can re-fresh our mint julep, a giant 8 appears in the Texas run total.  Game over,  The odds of coming back from that deficit, with only three outs available, plummet to .007.

What does it take for the Yankees to catch on?

 Tyler Clippard is done.

Time for him to be traded for a ladyfinger, or put on the bus with Chris Carter.

These one game winning streaks are painful.  You start to get headaches.

Apparently, I was the only reader of this blog who thought that signing Chris Carter was a good idea.
Obviously, I was wrong.
Now I picture him hitting balls over the Green Monster in September, mostly against
the Yankees.
I hope I'm wrong about that, too.

Why, yes! Our hitting coach is Alan Cockrell. Why would you even ask?

Oh.

Never mind.

GIRARDI GIRARDI GIRARDI!!

HE MAKES IT SO EASY FOR US TO 2ND GUESS, DISAGREE, AND ULTIMATELY PROVE US RIGHT ABOUT HOW WRONG HE IS DOING THINGS!

OUR BEST HITTER YESTERDAY WAS BRETT GARDNER..... WE COULDN'T TOUCH DARVISH, BUT HE LINED A BASE HIT OFF HIM, THEN ULTIMATELY MADE US WIN YESTERDAY WITH HIS CLUTCH HOMER IN THE 9TH.

GIRARDI BENCHED HIM TODAY (AGAINST A RIGHT HANDED PITCHER, NO LESS).

GIRARDI ALSO BENCHED PERHAPS ANOTHER ONE OF OUR BEST HITTERS TODAY, GARY SANCHEZ.

TODAY, WE COULDN'T HIT, AND WE COULDN'T SCORE OFF A 30 YEAR OLD JOURNEYMAN THROWING 90 MPH FASTBALLS....

DO THE MATH.

Nothing new: Joey Blue-Balls-Binders has been doing this since he managed Matsui: gee, poor Gardy earned a day off with his effort yesterday - - and Sanchy had SUCH a rough day behind the plate (so true)...of course, it would never occur to him to leave Gardy to continue a hot streak, and put The Sanchise at DH

Shades of Emily Litella, LBJ...

Please, PLEASE, may we not play any more sub-.500 clubs!! Joey always wants to heal them, kind soul that he is. LB (No J)
