Wow...If you read the accounts in the NY papers, all the Yankees keep saying is that they didn't lose ground last night. If that is their attitude then I really like our chances this weekend.
They got crushed. They admit to that. Then they talked about how they saw that Boston lost. Scoreboard watching (although that happens everywhere, but rarely admitted). But then to say they didn't lose ground. The same papers, by the way, claim that Boston blew a golden opportunity to take control of first place...Meanwhile, and correct me if I am wrong...Didn't Boston technically make up ground yesterday? Sure, they could have taken first place, but they started the day in second place, and played a double-header against a better team.
Schilling gave up 5 in 6+ innings...Mussina gave up 5 runs in 5 outs...They face Bedard and Cabrera...Not lights out guys, but guys that are capable...It comes off like they feel that they were lucky, and not totally in control of their destiny. If you don't believe me, go check out any Yankees article in any NY paper...
Let's just take care of business in Boston prior to this weekend, and we will be fine.
Go Seth McClung!!!!
