humidoratorI think the Rockies must have had the Humidor set too high. Yeah, that must be it.


I just don't understand this team.


After 2 weeks of championship-like play against Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Arizona and the Mets, the Yankees went to Colorado to play in the best hitters park in the league and only managed to score 5 runs in 3 games. They gained quite a bit of ground on the Sox during their hot streak - cutting Boston's lead down to 7.5 at one point - but after this embarrassing sweep they are 10.5 games out again. To be fair, the Rockies have been playing well lately, so it is not as if the Yanks got swept by a team with a .400 record, but they had a big opportunity to show off their offense and simply failed to capitalize. They left New York on the highest note of the season after having won 11 of their last 12 games, and a couple wins in Colorado would have thrown their record to several games north of .500 and kept them in contention with the Sox.

Losing a series in such disappointing fashion is disheartening, but if the Yanks can recapture an ounce of the spirit the were playing with last week and hang onto it through the summer, I still maintain that they have a chance at a post-season shot. They're going to need that fighting spirit big time for the immediate future: Kei Igawa is joining the roster for tomorrow's game in San Francisco. Dust off those #29 jerseys and bust out your rally hat!

    I lent my rally cap to Carl Pavano and he hasn't given it back yet.

    The rockies have a pretty solid lineup, and the top-five is performing like the best in baseball right now. If they can keep this up, they have a real shot of winning the National League. It's weird thinking of them as contenders, but that's how they're playing. And their pitching over the past 3 weeks is pretty damn impressive.

    The Rockies are trash, too. Josh Fogg and Rodrigo Lopez are trash. The whole operation is fucking trash.

    Ugh.

    Anyway, refer to my scathing post on today's edition of The Frustrated Fan, where I suggest the Yankees' offense needs to be treated for bipolar disorder.
