A Three Game Win Street Awaits

It is going to take some serious concentration, and possibly some risk taking, but the Yankees have a chance for accomplishing something they have, thus far, failed to do.

Post a three game win streak.  Start to accumulate " wins over .500."

But they have to get over some ( previously ) shaky footing to do so:

















Nonetheless, we are structuring a team that can do that.  Duque said it best;  we finally
have ( except for Bird ) the infield of which we dreamed all winter and spring.

The following are all possible;

1.  Andujar solidifies his spot at third ( 4-4 always helps)
2.  Gleyber begins to rake ( his defensive looked elite yesterday )
3.  The pressure comes off Stanton and he joins the offense ( making two fine defensive plays yesterday )
4.  Same for Sanchez.
5.  Tanaka is shamed into a fine performance.
6.  A fresh bullpen feels young again.

The sun shines in NYC and on the Yankees.

It snows in Boston.

I will say this;  " I look forward to watching this team play."

Bird may be on the Nick Johnson treadmill to DL immortality. But all is not lost, because Ty Austin isn't chopped liver. He's not Bird--or at least the potential Bird we've long hoped for--but he's not bad. Until/if Bird returns, I'll be happy with him in the infield.

And I wholeheartedly agree, this team is much more fun with the kids playing. I'll add that the Red Sux still crying about Tyler Austin only adds to his appeal for me, LOL!!!!!

I like Tyler, too ( And Tippecanoe).

The only thing is; he is going to have to sit for 5 games, eventually (maybe 3 or 4).

So Neal Walker stays until that occurs.

Bird is much better, however, and he can stay alive it helps us.

Then there is the Princeton guy......at Scranton?

OK, BUT HERE'S THE RUB.....

JUST WHEN WE THINK WE HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS, COOP CHANGES ALL THE QUESTIONS.

THERE IS A PROBLEM WAITING TO STICK US RIGHT IN THE RUMP.

THE PROBLEM'S NAME, (BROUGHT IN UNNECESSARILY BY COOP) IS.....?

BRANDON DRURY.

IS COOP DUMB ENOUGH TO TRASH THIS ANDUJAR REVELATION IN FAVOR OF A GUY WHO STILL ADMITS HE CAN'T SEE STRAIGHT?

WILL HE DESTROY ANDUJAR'S CONFIDENCE JUST AS HE IS BEGINNING TO ASCEND? (SOUNDS FAMILIAR RIGHT?- BRIGADOON REFSNYDER)?

WILL COOP EXIT OUT OF THE VERY REAL POSSIBILITY OF SAVING THE FRANCHISE $350 MILLION OR MORE DOLLARS BY NOT CHASING MANNY MACHADO)?

REMEMBER, PRIDE AND EGO MAY REAR IT'S UGLY HEAD HERE....

DRURY IS CASHMAN'S BOY.

I HATE HOW HE CALLS ALL THE SHOTS FOR US.

......SORRY ALPHONSO, I DETECTED A SENSE OF "OPTIMISM" IN YOUR POST.

SO I HAD TO SHOW MY NEGATIVE COUSIN THAT I'M ALWAYS HERE, ALWAYS WATCHING, ALWAYS LURKING....

WE NEED TO STAY BALANCED.

CHEERS. (CLINK)-GJ.

I agree ALL-CAPS; Cashman as always scares me to death, particularly when it comes to "his" finds.

All Andujar can do is keep hitting like he has been, which is great.

But the question looming over all this remains...pitching.

What will that drive Coops to do? Deal Drury, I hope. But it could just as easily be something much worse.

I was disappointed the Red Sox didn’t have a game today... because I was hoping everyone could go three in a row.
