We're not used to seeing the Yanks knock around the Angels' bullpen, but that's exactly what the Bombers did last night. Posada and Cano were the heroes in yesterday's exciting come-from-behind victory. Both players have been great from day one, which is very encouraging since they were two of the bigger question marks going into the season. Cano has looked downright dominant and Posada's hitting and throwing seems unaffected by his shoulder surgery.
That's not to say the Yanks have done a great job overall this season. The bullpen has been inconsistent. The starters have been blah. Our old friend Pythagoras thinks the Yanks have been a bit lucky. As Brian Cashman says, “The pythagorean theorem would throw us out the door right now. We’re
thankful that between the injuries and the inconsistencies that no one
has run away from us.” Still, Pythagoras is all theory. The reality states the Yanks are very much in the mix. In fact, they're on a nice little winning streak. Today they try to make it five in a row. The big guy is on the mound. Comment on all the action here.
