Yanks need to sweep

Normally, I'm "2 of 3", or "just win series", but the Daily News is right -- the inability to sweep is "one of their demons". The Yanks need a killer instinct, and right now, wins and losses are a precious commodity. They need to put on a long winning streak and that means sweeps.

Frankly won't be surprised if they lose, say, 8-1 today given their history, though I am hoping "past performance is no indication of future results."  Still, the premise is right.  They need to sweep a bad Marlins team.  They certainly didn't make it look easy in the first two games (one bad pitch away from Marlins being able to tie in the 9th both nights).  With the "easy" part of the schedule ahead (Orioles, Mariners, KC) they need to make hay while the sun shines.

Those "bad" teams are playing loose and easy. At this point they are playing the spoiler role.They would like nothing better than knocking off a team or two for post season aspirations.


Yankees shouldn't take them for granted. These days, no win comes easy for them. On most games it ends with a nail biter event.

They got the sweep.


They needed enormous help from the Marlins terrible defense, but they got it done.


Now, back home for the O's, and then the big 4-game set vs. the Mariners.

This could be a very big series when it comes to the Wild Card, it's early but like Yogi used to say it's getting early lait... We need to win as many games as we can, we still have a chance to do some great things...
