It may not be what I expected, but the Yankees earned a split with the Indians last night, 5-2. The offense, despite their 5 runs, was somewhat lethargic, managing only a double and 4 singles. The mighty offense did manage to score as they used 3 infield singles, a walk, and some ground outs to push acrosss 4 runs in the 6th inning.
But on the bright side, the Yankees got the nwin as Mussina pitched well, throwing 5 innings of 2-run ball. The pen came through with 4 shutout innings and Mo notched his 8th save of the young season.
Looking around the league, The Rays and the O's are atop the AL East,m while Florida leads the NL East. Have I entered Bizarro World? It's probably just early season craziness, happens every year, it seems. It may have been Bill White, when he was Yankees announcer who explained it as the bad teams just don't realize yet that they stink. Though, I will say, the Rays are pretty impressive. Between Crawford, Upton, and a decent young staff, they may just be around for a while.
