For those of you not on Twitter, one of the more popular memes of the 2011 season has been the ongoing ridiculing of the mainstream journalists that continue to assert that the Yankees’ home run-hitting proficiency is somehow detrimental to the offense (also known as #toomanyhomeruns).
Whether or not you feel the Yankee offense is too one-dimensional — and while I of course love all of the home runs, the team’s ongoing frustrations with RISP remain troubling — no one should be complaining about the Yankees going yard, as they did precisely that many times in a 7-3 win over the Mets Saturday night to knot the Subway Series at one game apiece.
A.J. Burnett was serviceable, throwing 6 1/3 innings of three-run ball (four strikeouts, three walks), and the Yankee end-game of David Robertson and Joba Chamberlain were lights-out, combining for 1 2/3 perfect frames. Also, Luis Ayala somehow threw a perfect ninth. On the offensive side of the ledger, Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez and Russell Martin all homered. More of that, please.
