Yankees Not Sucking Streak Broken

The Good

On Tuesday, the Yankees offense emerged with a 14 run barrage led by Alfonso Soriano who drove in 6 runs and hit 2 homeruns in the process.  The Yankees came back out on Wednesday, and nearly repeated the process.  They scored 11 runs, Soriano drove in another 6 including another 2 homeruns, and Nova pitched a masterful 7 inning, 3 run ball game.  Yesterday, that win streak ended unfortunately, but a good sign is that Hughes pitched 6 innings, and only gave up 3 runs.  We in the industry call that a quality start.

The Bad

Though Hughes pitched decently, our bullpen did not.  Between Kelley, Logan, and Chamberlain 5 runs were allowed.  At least the Yankees scored 4 runs showing that their run support for pitchers may actually be there.

The Ugly

Due to an increase in work, we haven't been able to update as frequently as we would like.  Luckily, that is starting to slow down, so we should be back to posting more regularly.  We apologize for making all 4 of our readers wait.

Finally, Some Charity

Soriano has provided this Yankee team some offense and the kids over at the CHF some hope.  Can he be the best trade acquisition in the history of baseball?  Yes.
