Red Sox Weekend Recap

The Good

The Yankees scored a lot of runs over the weekend, and managed to avoid a sweep.  Overall, the Yankees were a huge disappointment.

The Bad

Two blown saves by Mariano led to one loss, and a near sweep this series.  It didn't much matter, because the Yankees looked dominated all series long.  They got some hits, and scored some runs, but the Yankees never seemed in control of a game, even when they had a lead.  It was embarrassing to watch this team over the weekend.

The Ugly

I was in the left field bleacher seats during the Saturday game this past weekend, and the one piece of advice I have is this: if a cop asks you to leave, don't tell them to make you.  This happened to a visibly drunk and belligerent fan sitting in my section, and at the end of the day, the cop can and will make you leave, and no one thinks you're a hero for taking a drunken stand against being tossed out. 

Were there homers at least?

Yes, one from Soriano.  The kids will have to feast on that for a little while.

This series marked the first time the Yankees ever lost three straight in which they scored at least 7 runs in each game. With that, the injuries, and the ARod suspension, this season is becoming historic for the wrong reasons.
