It had been a very hot and cold start to the season before the Yankees coming into the 100th anniversary party for Fenway on Friday. They were getting more bad starts than good, and the offense was nowhere near clicking on even half its cylinders. A year after we had to deal with the stupidity of the "too many home runs" theory about the offense, the Yankees came into this weekend not hitting very many at all, at least not from the guys you usually expect to hit them. Well, after this weekend, I think anybody who was thinking of commenting on the lack of power from the Yankee lineup will have to reconsider, even if the pitching inconsistencies still linger. Here's my take on the 2 games I didn't get to watch over the weekend.
