Not Optimistic About This: Mets-Yankees Gamer III

In Johan Sanatana’s 3 losses this year, he has given up a total of 3 earned runs, though he was rough in his last outing, a win over the Phillies. A.J. is on the mound for the Bombers, coming off a horrid start at Fenway. He may well have to be exceptional for the Yankees to have a chance against the Johan.

  • krueg, I love your enthusiasm. You’re ready to kill after every loss, but you’re back at it the next day.

    Ellsbury drops a bunt single, gets in a pickle in a steal attempt, Howard throws it away and Ellsbury takes third. Speed kills, baby.
