PSA Comments of the Day 8/10/15: Slumps are the worst

The Yankees got swept by the Blue Jays this weekend, which was not the best strategy to maintaining their hold on first place in the AL East. They should go back to the whole "series victories" strategy that worked so well the entire month of July.

This weekend did not exactly go according to plan for the Yankees. I mean, maybe getting swept by the Blue Jays was their plan all along. If so, it is a very questionable and concerning plan. We here at Pinstripe Alley have studied this closely over the years and we've come to the conclusion that winning is more advantageous to the cause than losing is, especially when trying to maintain a division lead. Even Andrew Mearns, known advocate for not winning every game, didn't think the Yankees should have lost every game of this three game series. Perhaps they will use this day off to reevaluate their strategy. It is this writer's opinion that they should go back to that whole "winning series" thing that worked well for them last month.

Comments of the Day

What doesn't Girardi have to do with that?

Because why not?

Welcome to Punstripe Alley.


Technically, I could/should have retired after callin' a Chris Stewart home run in 2013. He hit four that year. Nothing will ever top that.


Almost over the Mendoza line, our Stephen Drew is.

Way to ruin this, Girardi.

Honorable Mod Mention

Jason Andrew Caitlin had to write the recap for that frustrating loss. She wins!

Fun Questions

  • Where do you think is the best place to go sightseeing?
  • A classic (I think). What's the most useless superpower you can think of?

Song of the Day

What A Difference Your Love Makes by Basement Jaxx

It's Electronica Week on Pinstripe Alley. Next on our playlist is this song off the Junto album. If you look in the recommendations list, you should see a link to another Basement Jaxx song, which has a twerking robot in it. As always, please link us your song of the day.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. The Yankees have the day off before they begin a three game series against the Indians.
