Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Well, after losing the first game against the pesky Mariners, the Yanks split the next two. I'm really starting to think that the sweep of Boston means the Red Sox are really bad, not that that Yankees are that good.
Take out that Red Sox series, and the Yankees are a below-.500 team since Bubba was DFA'd. Not that I think those two things are necessarily related; call it a convenient marker. They were on a roll. Then they weren't any more.
For the most part, the offense has been great. Heck, even Nick Green is hitting. The bullpen has been pretty good; our bullpen is the reason we beat Boston, IMO. But starting pitching is spotty, and the defense isn't what it used to be.
Reason for concern. Pitching and defense are going to be even more important in the post-season.
