WE CAN'T WIN THEM ALL... BUT WE SHOULD
Shane Greene looked good, but part of the problem with the Yankees offense is helping the pitching stay in the game. Many times, only 4 runs against them still makes it impossible for us to win. That's exactly what happened last night. We, for some strange reason are only looking at the fence, I guess for a home run or something. Or, maybe we fans were just over sold on the team we had going into 2014. Yes, I'm being critical. You realize why I am, right? We don't score runs! We rarely score 5 a game and hell, we never score 6. Papa John's was smart to hold that special of 6 runs and half-off your next order there... that's because the Yankees don't score 6... it seems like EVER.
2 runs for us last night. Just 5 hits. OH... and 5 errors. FIVE. This is the sign of a championship team? I think not. We look miserable.
Greene went 5.2 innings last night and gave up 4 runs. That was followed by the three stooges, and I say that affectionately, Matt Thornton, Adam Warren and David Huff. Now they held the Rangers down which was great, but those 4 runs off Greene were enough.
The Yankees run scoring, or lack there of, went like this:
In the bottom of the first, Carlos Beltran sacrificed home Derek Jeter. In the 4th, Jacoby Ellsbury homered... a solo shot.
Blah, blah, blah.... Sorry, but as a fan, I want more! We deserve more... these are the Yankees for Christ's sake.
Final: Rangers 4 - Yankees 2
