Yankees Start the Break Early

Today the Yankees faced a pitcher, whose team had publicly said was on a pitch count. So what do they do? They let him pitch almost the entire game while keeping his pitch count under 100.

This was another game in which the Yankees just looked bored and in a hurry to leave. I'm sure that's not the case, but most of them looked like they were thinking ahead to what they had planned for the All Star Break.

Now the Yankees find themselves with 67 remaining games. Last year they played great in the second half, and this year they have to do it again. They should be able to do it again, but who knows. Baseball is always unpredictable in the end.

Hi dman,

The Yanks should gain ground in the second half. The Tampa Rays are evaporating and I do not think Oakland can maintain their pace. -mlm
