A Small Sample Size Reminder

Some parts of the season seem to last longer than other parts.

On this date in 1994, Paul O'Neill played a disappointing game against the Blue Jays.

The right fielder went 1-3 with an intentional base on balls, and the Yankees beat the Jays 6-1 to maintain their lead in the AL East.

This was disappointing because it lowered his season triple slash line to a mere .471/.576/.835. I don't have footage to confirm, but my gut tells me that when O'Neill punched at least one water cooler after he struck out looking to start the 4th inning.

Some Yankees are off to miserable starts to their seasons. Some Yankees have set a blistering pace. Some are merely playing within expectations. It's such a long season that I completely understand if you're annoyed that I've taken the time to remind you (again) how long the season is. But then, I would remind you that it's a long season and a lot can change.
