I watched Kelu struggle with glove placement. What’s a hit if someone goes 2 for 20 over 3 games?


Kelly Johnson was one of two who got a hit tonight and an extra base one at that, and stopped a run from scoring by blocking that throw from Beltran, so not a bad night. CC had his usual bad start and got the Yankees in a deep hole early. Yankees offense not too good either. Like Betances relief work. Hopefully Kuroda can get a win tonight and the offense can get untracked.


Yikes. I give Kelly Johnson a month before he’s back in Tampa.
