Time for the Yankees

Posted in Yankees on April 25, 2011 by EAST SIDE RYNO

For the past week and a half, the Yanks have been overshadowed by the Knicks and Rangers’ playoff woes. Now it’s time to get back to talking baseball. This past series against the Orioles was very impressive. On Saturday, CC pitched an outstanding game while Russell Martin led the offense to a 15-3 blowout victory. Then yesterday afternoon, the Yanks took a quick 3-0 with the help of Curtis Granderson’s home run. But, the Orioles would comeback and tie the game at 3 (another blown save for Mariano). However, in the top of the 11th, the offensive woke up and scored three runs. The Yankees would go on to win 6-3 and improve to 12-6 on the season. Derek Jeter had a four hit game yesterday, so I hope everyone can get off his back. He’s going to be fine this year. Don’t expect him to bat .300, but he will bat above .270. Last time I checked, how many shortstops are batting over .270? Exactly. He’s not supposed to be one of our main guys in the lineup so let him have a decent year in peace. Yankees come home to take on the White Sox tonight at 7pm on ESPN.
