A few hours after I was bitching that the Yanks scored early and then not so much, the team exploded for 12 runs on 13 hits in a 12-3 rout of the ChiSox.
The Yanks, who earned a split with the Southsiders, scored two runs in the third inning, sixth in the fifth, one in the sixth and three in the seventh. They really spread the runs around, which I told them to do…so you’re welcome.
Also: Brett Gardner now has three times as many home runs as Carl Crawford and costs $14,327,642 less per year. Nick Swisher, who snapped a career-worst 0-for-19 slump on Thursday, has the same amount of dingers as Beantown’s $142 million offseason acquisition. Boston Red Sox: the best team money can buy!
