    It just seems like they always beat us. You mean 4-3. I'll eat the plastic tip on a shoelace if we win this game.

    Is it me, or can you tell when the Yankees are going to lose a game by about the third inning, even if there's no score?

    Not like those great teams, that's for sure. You always felt like they'd win, even when they were down.

    The Yankees record when trailing after specific innings:

    When trailing after the 1st inning, the Yankees are 2-8.
    When trailing after the 2nd inning….2-8
    3rd inning….1-12
    4th inning….1-16
    5th inning….4-17
    6th inning….1-18
    7th inning….0-17
    8th inning….0-18

    (courtesy of Baseball-Reference)

    What this teaches you is that when the Yankees are behind at the end of an inning, you should go do something else.

    This offense is sickening. What ever happened to "the approach"? We used to be much tougher at running up pitch counts and wearing down pitchers. Now, we just frequently make mediocre pitchers look like all-stars.

    I'm sick of hearing about "hard hit balls". Hit 'em where they ain't. Score runs. That will impress me. Not hard hit outs.

    Teams have figured us out.

    STRIKES, STRIKES, STRIKES.

    We take pitches early, they get ahead of us early.

    Kazmir-Shields-Garza-Sonnastine-Jackson with David Price down below.

    The Rays suddenly have the makings of the best young staff in the AL East. I'd still give the current nod to Beckett-Lester- Buccholz for now but the Rays arms have very lively stuff with the exception of Sonnastine who relies on pinpoint control.

    We have been saying it for about 2 years now that they will be very very good.

    and that's the ball game. 1 run is too much to overcome for this team.
