This season has certainly had a Fellini-esque, circus-y quality to it. But we’re not here to talk about Italian film. No. Last night, the Yanks made up another game on the Sox, drawing to within the number above with a win over the DBacks, their 8th consecutive victory overall. The Yanks’ starting pitching seems to have found its footing against three of the game’s weaker-hitting teams: the ChiSox, the Bucs, and now the Snakes. Will they continue to roll against more potent lineups? We’ll find out soon enough. But as the Sox found out last night, even a suspect offense can put on a whooping if given the opportunity. The Sox gave the Rox just such a chance last night; Curt Schilling was roughed up, and when Francona went for the fire extinguisher he instead pulled out the gas can. Yankee fans know that feeling, for sure. Meanwhile, in the Bronx, Moose looked sharp, throwing strikes, and with a nasty curve. Alex continues to bomb. It sure would be nice to see this surge continue. We might even have a competitive division—by the All-Star break.

    That’s f’ing hilarious YF, and boy have we seen Torre do that a few times this year is right. On another note, a Sox fan friend of mine came up to me yesterday and stated, “before you get too geared up on this Yankee tear don’t forget it’s against the Chi Sox, the Bucs, and the D-Backs”.
    I responded by thanking him for his keen insight on the matter and then reminded him who has been the victor in the past two series between our two respective teams. To which his response was, “well, every dog has its day”. LOL.

  • Listen bottom line is let anyone say what they would like. The Yankees issue was that they were playing awful baseball and now it appears that they are on the road to improving that. If they had lost to the Chi Sox, Bucs or D-Backs, would we get a pass? No, of course not. Keep playing good ball fellas!

  • Actually, the game was already in full immolation when Francona came out to get Schilling.
    As for the Yankees doing against this against weaker clubs, it’s irrelevant, and demeaning to the Yankees. They are hot, playing great ball, and it doesn’t matter who it is against.

  • Are you not supposed to beat up weaker teams?
