Back to .500 by Larry Mahnken
If you're inclined to overreact to a week and a half, you'll do so for the first week and a half of the Yankees' season. They're .500, but they could be 8-0. They had to come back late against the Royals on Tuesday, but they still won. They blew leads out on the West coast, but those were against tough teams on the road.
They're doing fine. Wang and Chacon were poor the last two days, but no matter what assumptions we might make going into the season, we can't decide that the worst has happened after just two starts. The bullpen doesn't appear to be much better than last season's, but Randy Johnson looks like Randy Freaking Johnson so far.
Really, they should have been expected to go 3-3 or 2-4 on the road this past week, it's really the 4-game losing streak that made it seem awful. They're supposed to win 2 of 3 against KC, and they've already done that. Win today, and they're at least on schedule, if not ahead of it. And they're sure to have a few unbeatable runs in them this year.
No sir, I still have yet to see a single thing this season that worries me.
Which kind of worries me. I'm supposed to be the pessimist. Uh-oh. --posted at 4:17 AM by Larry Mahnken / |
