Instant Analysis: An offensive offenseBy
Andy Pettitte wasn’t at his sharpest today, but a few of his hits were of the bloop variety. He’s not why the Yankees lost. They lost because the bats were 9 for 37 with one extra-base hit. They walked twice and struck out seven times. The Yanks find themselves at 2-3 because the team is hitting .228/.289/.382 with nine walks and 22 strike outs. But it’s five games at the start of the season. They’ll snap out of it, and if the bullpen and starting pitching keeps doing what its been doing, the Yankees will be a-ok. And that’s all there is to it today.
