Not Particularly Proud of This Win…

2010 Pretty In Pinstripes Challenge Tracker: Entry #42 – 5/21/10 – Yankees @ Mets

Final Score: Yankees 2, Mets 1.

… but I’ll take it.
Considering how crappy the Yankees have been this past week, I’m not about to get picky over how we win. I just want us to win.
Javier Vazquez pitched a 6-inning gem. He finished the sixth inning with 70 pitches, and could have pitched for at least another two innings. Why didn’t he? Because he hurt his finger while laying down a bunt. Boy, isn’t that the way this year seems to be going for Javy? Can’t catch a freaking break. If it isn’t the weather, it’s a bruised finger. I hope he doesn’t miss a start over this.
It’s a good thing our offense managed to score a couple of runs, because they were absolutely comatose after that.
Don’t get me started on our offense. I don’t understand what their deal is. Yes, I know that the team as a whole is suffering from injuries, but what does that have anything to do with the hitters that are healthy? They’re not producing either! 
The lineup isn’t like the bullpen. If a relief pitcher is injured, the entire bullpen suffers, because they’ll have to be overworked to compensate. In the batting lineup, our hitters are expected to hit every day, so an injury in the bottom of the lineup has no effect on the top of the order. I don’t understand what is wrong with our hitters, all I know is that it better get fixed soon.
Other teams are gaining ground, and we need to wake up soon.
I’m not going to go on any further. It was a win, so it was good. Like I said, I’m not particularly proud of it, but hey, when you’ve had the week that we’ve had, you’ll take a win any way you can get it.
