The Yankees might have an opportunity to move back into first place tonight. The Rays lost last night, putting the Yankees a half-game out of the division lead. Injuries could be catching up to Tampa Bay,especially now that they’ve lost first baseman James Loney. If the Yankees beat the Royals tonight, and the Rays lose to the Mariners, the Yankees will be back in first place.

Bull Pen  and Defense Numbers

So far this season neither the bullpen nor the defense have been strengths. Far from it, really, and this latest stretch of awful play has made it plainly obvious. The bullpen as a whole has a 3.23 ERA (3.51 FIP) compared to the 3.54 ERA (3.71 FIP) league average, but the relief crew is top heavy — Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller have been fantastic, combining for a 0.42 ERA (1.62 FIP) in 43.1 innings. The Yankees have a lot of problems. Those two aren’t among them.

  1. Yesterday Ricky and his crew came over for the holiday,we decided to break the Yanks streak by drinking BEFORE the game, and we had Jeremy Guthrie with us!! The Yanks outburst was as shocking as them getting swept.I never expected them to get swept by the Rangers,had not happened since 2003!! Its great to see Heathcott and Lindgren,they need to keep playing. Heathcott needs to be in cf while Ellsbury is out,
    use Young vs a tough lefty and he really should be in lf. Yanks only 1/2 game out-lol I just hope that what happened to them after they hit 5 homers vs the Rays doesn’t happen again!!

  2. hey Big D, I’m surprised Pirela isn’t in there vs a LHP

    good job drinking before the game, maybe that’s the mojo we need, what’s on tap tonight? lol

  3. Maybe Joey thinks they used up their Lhp out of the pen last night and there are only rhp coming to relieve Vargas

    So replace Pirela once Vargas comes out

  4. Back to 2 runs in the 1st inning then nothing
    Joey must think Pirela can’t handle the crafty lefty
    If he’s not gonna play vs s Lhp when is he
    There isn’t that many lefties as it is
