    Yankees have slacked off their insane pace and are gradually falling back to earth. Tonight begins weekend visit
    to the unaccommodating St.Louis who are on a 5 game home winning streak. I am not very optimistic to think
    the Yankees will snap out of their doldrums. We shall see.

    Not sure if anyone else noticed, but yesterday, Joey Gallo, unlike his days in NY, in his Dodgers debut, intentionally went the other way and copped a clean single to LF...anyone surprised?

    And I also wonder if anyone here will be surprised tomorrow if the Yanx are shut shut down offensively when we face Jordan Montgomery?

    The bad vibes I get about this team may totally be unfounded if they can turn things around. Until then……
    I want their shaky pitching to make positive strides. St. Louis has uncanny knack to correct a pitcher’s woes;
    Yeah, I can see them helping Montgomery.

    Pretty classy showing by the St Louis fans, giving Carpenter a standing O.

    Jesus, Torres, that pitch you struck out on was a foot off the plate.

    Donaldson comes alive. RBI single in 3rd. Yankees up 2-1 one out.

    Yankees continue to leave runners on base. So far 5 in three innings.And this is against a 6-6 pitcher’s record with ERA of 4.25

    And Torres sabotages another scoring opportunity.

    If this team does not make it to the WS, Cashman will have a wheel n’ deal off season.

    You get the feeling with the Yankees out-hitting Cards 9 to 1 with only a 2 run lead ……one mistake and poof!

    Again, another starter who cannot pitch thru 6. Pitiful. Yep, BaBoone just has no clue
    about pitchers.
