As the Yankees slowly make their way back following the All Star Break, they are one and one against the Blue Jays with the rubber game this afternoon.  Luke Voit made his way back into the lineup but his comeback was a disappointment for the Yankee stud first baseman.

“I had good at-bats. Obviously the last two, they made good pitches, like big-league pitchers. I felt good overall,” Voit said after the 2-1 loss. “It’s frustrating because I had a chance to help the team win the game today and it didn’t come through, but that’s baseball and it’s going to happen sometimes,” according to the NY Post.

Luke Voit is tough on himself and rightfully so.  You don't get anywhere in life without giving yourself a good kick in the butt everyday.  Voit's commitment has gotten him where he is today; a starting role on a legacy team who is in pursuit of their 28th championship.  As Missy wrote yesterday, in her piece, WILL THE SECOND HALF LEAD TO RING 28,  pitching is the Achilles heal of this team, with an overused bull pen and not enough consistent starting pitching.

Voit just had a slow start after coming off the injured list and that's okay.  The Yankees are going to lose a game or two on the road to victory.  It is important to win series and for guys like Voit who give everything to this team, that has to be the focus.
