Yankees Offense Sputters Again!

Rain ManCorrespondent IJuly 11, 2008

Once again, the Yankees lose the game, because the Yankees offense was like a horrible train wreck. Joba Chamberlain didn't get any support from his offense at all, he tried the best he could, striking out 9 Blue Jays, but it wasn't to be. Roy Halladay showed that he's one of baseball's elite pitchers two-hitting the Yankees, and kept them off the scoreboard, striking out 8 in the process. Alex Rodriguez and Derek Jeter got the Yankees only hits in the game.

On the Blue Jays side of the stats, Lyle Overbay had a great game, going 3-4, with one RBI, and scoring once. Matt Stairs was 1-4, but had three RBIs, 2 on a homer that put the ! on the game. Rod Barajas hit a solo HR.

Boston, and Tampa Bay lost as well, we sure could have used a win the last 2 days, if we won those games, we would have been 4.5 out of first place, and I believe 3.5 out of the wild card. The Rangers won, so they are only a half game behind the Yankees in the wild card race.

I am so sick of the Yankees offense not doing their job. I'm surprised we are 6.5 games out and not 16.5 games out with this pathetic offense. The pitching and fielding is saving us big time.
