Where Have All the Cowboys Batters Goooooooooone?
Monday, April 07, 2008
The usual M.O. for the Yankees teams of the 2000s has been to stack the roster with powerful offense and worry about pitching second, relying on the bats to propel the team to winville. The Yanks are off to a good start this year (especially compared to last year. And compared to the Tigers.), but it's actually been the pitching that's been winning the games while the batters swing and miss over and over again. Even though we're only one week into the season and obviously don't need to be rushing to conclusions, it's a bit frustrating to see the pitching produce while the offense struggles to provide them with run support.

After six games, only four starters are hitting over .300: MVP-Rod (.333), Matso Ball Soup (.350), the Melkinator (.364), and Abreu (.318); on the other side of the spectrum, there are four starters hitting under .200! Those losers are Jorgie (.143), Giambino (.083), Demon (.136), and Robby (.174). What's worse, the team is only hitting .146 with runners in scoring position! FOR SHAME!

Again, it's only been a few days. There's no need to panic (it's not like they're 0-6 or anything...). I'm confident that Jeter and Cano will end up with .320 BA's, Giambi will work his OBP magic as usual. Girardi will fire everyone up (he has something we haven't seen in a Yanks manager in 12 years: emotion other than sentimental tears and loving pats on the back) and all will be well in the world.

Let's just hope that happens before our pitchers get tired.
