Expected but still disappointing

Yesterday's game went pretty much as you would expect. 17 strikeouts by Yankees batters - ugh! Still, they played with a lead for a few minutes, thanks to the fourth postseason home run by Darth Bader. Pretty much the only way the Yankees are able to score a run is if one of their big wild swings happens to hit a baseball. Bader's probably more lucky than good but he's been the Yankees' biggest highlight this October.


  1. I'm sure somewhere deep in the recesses of their minds, Yankee hitters have the memory of how to swing for contact. Hopefully they'll apply it!

  2. 30 strikeouts in two games seems like the new norm. I miss the days where at least a fraction of the hitters hit for contact.
