Abreu's double in 10th keeps Yankees on a roll

Full story: Newsday

A week ago, the Yankees were worried about a whole different kind of "walk off." They had appeared ready to walk off a cliff, down some pretty steep slope, far from the top of the American League East.

a win is a win granted but not for nothing, this offense really needs to start hitting the ball and scoring some runs. scoring them consistently, not 13 in one game and then 1 or 2 the next day. i not expecting blowouts every day but theres no reason why they struggle to score 1-2 runs. their pitching (which most felt was their weekpoint) has been holding up their end, but the offense is askin them to be perfect each time out. they should be averaging 5-6 runs per game.

You're right! I think the absence of Matsui hurts but there are a lot of other proven hitters in that lineup. Someone needs to step up!
The pitching has surprised many, including myself. With few exceptions, the pitching has been fantastic-at least over the last 6-8 weeks!

I agree about their lack of scoring, and with matsui and Damon out, it hurts. But Cano is finally coming around, and hopefully things will fall into place. I can feel it coming, and I'm sure the Rays can too.

Dont bother hunting down stats, it's a waste of time with those guys. I'm convinced that TAP SAN IN LIC is forced to watch Jeter do his woman, at her instructions, and then gets to clean her out. That must be very humiating, and I can understand his "dis-taste" for Jeter.
Personally, I think Reyes is a good ballplayer, but a bit of a head case. At this point in his career, he does not belong in the same sentence as Jeter.

I agree Jim. The pitching has been much better then I expected. The bullpen has for the most part been very good. I really like that Veras kid. He can bring the fast ball. Then freeze them with his change up. Lack of clutch hitting has been the issue. Carbera is hitting less then I thought he would hit, as well as Cano. Matsui being hurt and Posada not hitting the long ball like last year. ARod not coming close to last years production. All of this in part has helped to contribute to the offensive problems. This team however is dangerous.If They can turn it up a notch or two, they have the capability to string some long winning streaks together. Hopefully, that will be the case.

yup, that's the poster that keeps running his mouth. i agree w/you, i dont take anything away from Reyes, i just dont think he's at Jet's level yet, in performance, in clutch situations or in maturity.
i think i'll take your advice and bail out of that forum.

Doesn't really matter! Jeter has already been to places that Reyes will never see.
Reyes has a bunch of potential that will never ever be realized because although he's talented, he's as dumb as a stump and as immature as a 3 year old. You'll never see Jeter get thrown out trying to steal 3rd with no one out and a run down late or any time in the game for that matter. He gets picked off too many times and makes a lot of mistakes on the bases in particular. A guy with his speed shouldn't be popping up as often as he does either. He should be hitting the ball on the ground and using his legs. He's capable of hitting about 50 points higher but never will because he's too dumb to figure it out and won't listen to those who point it out to him.
He's a raw talent that hasn't grown up and doesn't seem too anxious to do so! He's more focused on the little girlie antics then the game itself.

The Mess fans just react out of jealousy. Every SS they get is better then Jeter in their not so knowledgeable opinion. The Mess were so high on Reyes and thought so much of him that they brought Matsui in from Japan to play SS and moved the boy wonder to 2b. That worked out real well!!!
