Game 154: Runs, Please

Want to hear something crazy? The Yankees are 1-9 in their last ten games against teams other than the Rays. They’re 5-2 against Tampa during that time, but yeah, 1-9 against the not-Rays is really bad. The Yankees have looked every bit as bad as that 1-9 record too. They’re not scoring, the pitching staff is held together by duct tape, and these days the defense hasn’t looked...
