Need to Get Back on Track

After really closing the gap on Boston in a hurry, the Yankees have lost 5 out of their last 6 games and stand 11 games out heading into tonight. Needing a win very badly, the Yankees must be glad to see Andy Pettitte on the mound at Baltimore, a bad team that’s getting worse by the day.

However, Jeremy Guthrie is on the hill for Baltimore sporting a 2.40 ERA. No one really talks about this guy but he’s a quality pitcher. Not to mention the Yankee bats are once again in a slumber, at least when it counts. They stranded a ton of runners in San Francisco, and really had some poor at bats (particularly Abreu and Matsui).

It’s important for the Yankees to get off to a good start in this series with a win tonight. I just wish I would stop seeing Johnny Damon in the lead-off spot…
