Slim Pickins’

It’s not so much that we’re watching a non-gluten Yankee offense, that would imply trying to be healthy for the sake of winning. Maybe something like what George had in mind with his misbegotten Bronx Burners project in 1982 (never mind power, we want speed). This Yankee team is more like offensive crudite: Zoilo, Ishikawa, Romine, Luis Cruz, Alberto Gonzalez. There’s just not much there. So you can’t blame them entirely when they’ve got situations set up nicely but don’t follow through. Last night the most dramatic scene came in the 9th with the Yanks down 5-1. They loaded the bases with nobody out and then the next three hitters struck out and the game was over.

That’s just the pill we’ve got to swallow right now.

Final Score: Royals 5, Yanks 1 [2].
