The Yankees dropped their third of four as a late rally fell short, making a game that was not really that close for nine innings read significantly more interesting on paper. The Yankees turn to their horse to earn the nod in the rubber match against the Tigers. Since C.C. Sabathia last took the mound, none of the other Yankee starters have left the game with a lead. Max Scherzer is 3-0 in his career against New York. Comment away on your Sunday afternoon baseball action.

Freddy Garcia brings his 9.75 ERA to the mound as the Yankees face the Tigers.
You think we need one more?
You think we need one more.
All right, we’ll get one more.
Didn’t actually click publish when I wrote this earlier today..At 6-1 before getting out of the second, looks like 11 might be too soft as well.

Pineda may start throwing off the mound within a year, which is infinitely different from never.
Jesus Montero has only one home run more than Russell Martin.
The Yankees get to rest a day before heading to Detroit to face Verlander.
Phil Hughes doesn’t start again until next week.
Okay one real one:
Derek Jeter leads the league in hits and has a .642 OBP. Six. Four. Two.

Quick: anyone remember the last time the Sox swept a series? Bzzzzt. Time’s up. It was last July against Seattle, which is like saying you have a girlfriend who lives in Canada.
Clay Buchholz gets the nod for the Sox, while Aussie Liam Hendriks mans the mound for Minnesota. Yahoo doesn’t even have a head shot of Hendriks, but with a bit of digging, I found one. Comment away.
I have no problem admitting that I enjoyed watching Yu Darvish pitch last night. Yankee batters were off balance all game long, chasing 96 mph — sometimes wild — fastballs only to be flummoxed by Bugs Bunny 78 curves, rendering a fine start by Kuroda for naught. The Captain and Cano (nice ring, that.. sounds like a light-hearted crime drama) each doubled and singled but Yu ruled the night.
Phil Hughes has been decidedly mediocre and received a gift win his last start against the Twins. I suppose the highlight of his outing was he lasted for 103 pitches. Scott Feldman gets the rock for the Rangers.

So. There I was, at Macy’s — of course — when I saw the most GORGEOUS man walking by, and right then I wanted to have his babies. His musk smelled like bergamot. I would go bergamot-shaped for him. Hand to God, yes I would. He made me tremble at the knees. TREMBLE, I tell you. And ivy leaves and coriander, like pastrami sandwiches eaten on a blanket in the park. There was blue sage, not that whorish purple mind you, but Hampton Blue. And Orange flowers with geranium, because somehow he just knew I like geraniums best. They don’t bother. And I swore I smelled patchouli and sandalwood, mixed with suede! It was just like when I surprised Charlotte in her dorm room at Vassar while she was knee-deep in “study” with her history professor who couldn’t wear out the corduroy elbows on his jacket for the suede.
Will I ever see that man again? Here, sweetheart, put this on.

On double super secret probation? Road trip. Not sure what the Dexter Lake Club has to do with anything, but just try and look shocked when you learn of the kiln explosion, Otter.
Jon Lester tries to get the Sox back on track at Target Field, while the Twins send Jason Marquis, who was roughed up by the Bombers in his only start this year. Comment away.
