After a sadly blown opportunity in the Bronx against the D-Rays, we expect a lot of ink in the next 24 hours about how Mo has “lost a step” and how A-Rod failed to get the job done with men on base. Mo hasn’t lost it. He may be suffering from lack of work, but the runs he’s giving up are on dinky shit; he just hasn’t had much fortune out there, and he hasn’t had much help from his mates either on defense or offense. And why he was even pitching in the 8th, after the pricey new setup man blitzed through the 7th on only 12 pitches…. If you wanna point fingers for this loss, point at the manager, whose 1-run, sac-bunt strategies gave away a whole bunch of outs. Sloppy baserunning didn’t help either. And so 20-odd baserunners resulted in exactly 2 runs. And that is frustrating.
