Game 21: Where’s the offense?

I know that the Yankees have a bad habit of not scoring a ton after scoring a whole lot, but this lack of offense is starting to be disconcerting.  They score 15 runs in the 2nd game of the Baltimore series (first game was PPD by rain), then score 6 in the last game of the series, then zero, two and now three in the series so far with the White Sox.  The heck?  What’s worse, it appears all of our runs can only come via the HR, rather than “small ball”. 

At least we can say one good thing; during this whole stretch of rather putrid offense, we’ve been getting some great starting pitching.  So at least not everything is falling to pieces in one fell swoop.  Something else that’s been great to see, is how effective Bartolo Colon has been for us this season.  I certainly never expected it before the season started, and I don’t think anyone else did either…..except maybe Bartolo Colon himself.  His final line was 8 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K.  Mo came in for the 9th and collected his 8th save of the season, which leaves him with 35 to go before he holds the all-time saves record.  Keep it going, Mo. 

As I mentioned above, our offense these last four games has been awful.  We scored three runs in the 1st inning last night……….and then nothing for the rest of the game.  That’s sad, no matter how good our SP was.  Our only run production came from a 3-run HR by Robbie Cano.  No one else showed up.  Derek did get another hit, which means he needs 52 more to get 3,000, but nothing else of any import happened.  I’m glad we won, but come on guys.  Hit the ball.
