What can you tell about a team from two games? After four, Sox fans are concerned about their team’s anemic offense, but one would think Boston will have plenty of offense this season. However, in these first two games, Yanks fans might be already witnessing in exaggerated form the problems that will plague the Bombers in 2007. The Yanks have put up enough offense. The problem has been on the run-prevention side of things, and most specifically the infield defense. As the Yanks’ roster is contructed, sloppy and aesthetically unpleasing games might be the norm this season, which is not to say the Bombers won’t win a lot. It’s just that, they’re going to win a lot of games ugly.
Tonight, one of the worst-run franchises in baseball comes to town. The Orioles do have an exciting trio of young starters, however, and one of them, Adam Loewen, starts tonight. The crafty veteran, Mike Mussina, counters for the Bombers. This is your game thread for comment. Go Yanks!
