The Yanks pulled out a must-win last night, behind Pettitte and Jeter. Boston lost, so the Yankees are back within 5.5 games. So why do I find myself even more frustrated? Because when the Yankees stay somewhat close like this it makes me lament even more all of the games they gave away this year. If they had pulled out even 3 or 4 of those terrible losses, they’d be right there.
Instead, they are relying on Ponson to beat Halladay tonight.
