What is wrong with the yanks as of late?

They can't seem to buy a win. I am a true heart yanks fan but their chemistry or something is off!

No they can get wins. They can't get any consistency. They'll have a night like Sunday, big comeback against the Mets. Then Monday they have another nice comeback against the O's. Then they play a close game against Balt and blow it in extra innings. Then they get their ass handed to them by the Tigers. Then they come out tonight and have another good game, nice comeback.

There's no consistency, and the difference in the wins and losses is the starting pitching. RJ had a good game Sunday, kept the Yanks close. I think Pavano went Monday, had an ok game. Not thrilling, but he kept it within reason. Wang had a bad start Tuesday, wound up biting the Yanks. Friday, RJ was god awful, Yankees had no chance. Today, Mussina wasn't great, but was certainly servicable, and they won again.

It all depends on the starting pitching. You might say the offense isn't doing it's part when they lose 10-2, like last night, but when you look up in the 4th inning and its 7-1, you really don't give a crap. It's really not an acheivable goal every night, when you need to put up 12 runs to win. When the Yankees get good starting pitching, they win. There haven't been too many low-scoring games that they've lost. It's always north of 5 runs.
