No Margin for Error: Yanks-Blue Jays Gamer

After carrying the Yankee rotation for much of the year, Hiroki Kuroda has crashed back to earth, pitching to a 5.29 ERA in his last 5 starts.  His only previous start at the Rogers Centre was his worst start of the season.  Meanwhile, A-Rod is carrying a 1-for-16 slump into tonight’s game.

These are not good indicators.

The Yankees have frittered away what little cushion they bought themselves and now must outpace the O’s over these final 6 games if they are to secure a spot in the post-season without a one-game play-in.  Meanwhile the Rays are once again making a stunning late-season run as the surging Angels go to Texas for the match-up of the night.

October is right around the corner – great time for baseball.  Comment away…

  • Guess we can forget about Boston helping the cause. Giving up 6 runs to Balttimore in the 1st inning. Nice work.

  • Yanks load the bases with no outs in the second and come away with 1 run on jeter’s GIDP. Great job.

  • AL Central tightened to one game tonight and looks like both LAA and Oakland will gain a game on Texas. Yanks just a game off of best AL record and a 3-game swing with Oakland from missing the playoffs altogether. Great drama in the AL that will probably come down to the last day of the season. And we look to Pettitte once again for a playoff-type performance tomorrow.
