Searching for meaning in a meaningless whatever...

Should we be worried? The Yankees only score via HRs (Judge/Ford).

That could be a problem in extra-inning games, when each team starts with a runner on second. For us, it would be Tyler Wade, followed by a lead-off, pinch-bunter, to be determined. Do we even have a bunting specialist? Maybe CC should come out of retirement, after all.

Also, if 2020 is The Year of the Bullpen, the Yankees should be loaded. Last night, Nick Nelson auditioned.

Certainly, but this has been going on for almost two decades now. The team's management actually encourages swinging for the fences at all times. The money ball calculators have determined that this is the way to maximize scoring. Totally wrong, of course. Because we want to win, not maximize scoring. It makes no damn difference whether we win today 18-0 or 26-0, if we lose Game 7 of the World Series 3-2. This is exactly why I tend to think that we would have lost the 2019 World Series even if we'd got there. Washington Nats did everything we never do, like hit balls in holes, hit the other way, move baserunners.

At least it's nice to be complaining about baseball rather than the lack of it.
