Sometimes teams just roll and go on an enormous winning streak. And sometimes they don't. Sometimes there's inconsistency, losing streaks and chaos. The Yankees are a damn good club with many, many problems. Tonight they got killed 10-2 by the Mariners.... and in Yankeeland, fans are literally going crazy! We're roaming the streets, and by streets I mean social networks, and we're screaming mad. We're bitching, we're moaning and we're wondering... What the hell is going on with our Yankees?
The Yankees scored 2 runs tonight. We had 9 hits leaving 5 on base all night. We had chances, but for the love of God, why does this continue to happen with David Phelps on the mound?
Now look, David is no saint in all of this. Phelps went 6 innings, allowed 6 hits and 6 runs. Now, you know me, I'm not exactly on the Phelps train, but he wasn't exactly stellar. But there is in fact more to it; We as a club need to explode with the bats too.
Now, on paper, Felix Hernandez beats Phelps in my eyes, but the Yankees have played well against Felix in the past. We could have handled it. Oh and Phelps wasn't the only one giving up runs tonight. Alfredo Aceves is totally lost lately. We may need to put him down to AAA for a few weeks to see if we can straighten him out. He gave up 4 more runs. Over all, it was not a truly great performance by our pitching. That being said, the hitters need to produce too.
The Yankees scoring went like this:
In the bottom of the 4th, Ichiro singled knocking in 2 runs, McCann and Solarte . Boom... that was it. I mean, you can't blame Yankeeland for being upset, annoyed, pissed and angry over this game and over the way the Yankees have played most of May. We're inconsistent. There are no winning streaks to speak of. There is no consistent hitting, or pitching together... it's enough to make me snap.
Come on Yankees... get the momentum going... it's driving me crazy!
Final: Mariners 10 - Yankees 2
