No Defense To Go With No Offense

May 6, 2011 – 12:30 am

Detroit 6, NYY 3. What an ugly series this one ended up being. The Yankees started out not being able to hit with runners in scoring position, then got to the point where they couldn’t hit at all, then threw in some terrible base-running, and capped it off in the last game of the series with some shoddy defense that probably cost them the game. So now they take a three game losing streak to Texas where they play the defending league champions. About the only good news is that Texas, 3-7 over their last 10 games, is also playing pretty badly. The way things are going for both of these teams, we could be in for a lot of bad baseball this weekend.
