Key To A Series Win:
Eliminate The Mistakes:
The margin for error has been so slim thanks to the anemic offense, therefore playing tight-knit baseball gives the New York Yankees the best, or only, chance to win.
In Thursday night’s 1-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, Starlin Castro represented the go-ahead run with Brian McCann at the dish and the Yankee second baseman committed one of the most frustrating baserunning blunders.
This is just one of the examples on how this team struggles with the most basic, fundamental baseball. And it’s beyond frustrating to watch.
It’s not fair to call out Castro, though. Severino’s two errors on Tuesday night cost the Yankees a run and ran his pitch count up and again, it can’t happen especially if the offense continues to dissapoint.
