Thanks to Melky Cabrera’s 10th inning single, the Yankees were able to pull out an extra innings victory against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday. Although they won, this was a somewhat painful game to watch. There were a lot of ups and downs but it was surprising to see the Yankees bullpen surrender eight runs in two innings. Lately the Yankee bullpen has been on fire, posting strong outings and looking ready for the playoffs. This poor bullpen performance left a bad taste in the mouth of Yankees fans and question marks continue to linger.
This was an important victory non the less, especially since Boston won against Tampa Bay. Now the Yankees remain 2 ½ games out of first place. They have the momentum and confidence to take first place from the Red Sox, they are not the type of team to settle for the wild card. I think the Yankees can win the division and have one of the biggest comeback seasons in baseball history. Regardless of how the Yankees finish this season I think all baseball fans have learned one thing, never count the Yankees out.
