Swept. A five-game losing streak. Looking back was never so hard.

 

Highlights

Bartolo Colon had a good outing in Game 1. Other than that, unless you want to count a few insignificant Yankee home runs, all the highlights in this series came from the Red Sox.

Moving right along...

Lowlights

1. Colon's outing notwithstanding, the pitching was horrible. The starters couldn't make pitches when they had to and the bullpen simply stunk.

2. What happened to the Yankees defense? Errors and passed balls ruled the weekend. The low point? A ground ball through Alex Rodriguez's legs. I was ready to turn off the TV at that point.

3. Once again, the offense failed to show up.  The Yankees left a ton of men on base and the bats remained cold with runners in scoring position.

 

Looking Ahead (Glady!)

The Yankees play two in Tampa Bay and two in Baltimore before coming back to the Stadium this weekend to host the Mets. 

Everyone knows how easy it is for players to turn the page. We'll find out this week if they can turn it on.
