Not Quite What Was In Mind: Yanks-PaleSox Gamer II

The Yankees blew leads of 3-0 and 6-5 last night to fall to Chicago despite four hits from the Captain and two hits from Mark Teixeira in his first game back from a brief layoff. Tonight, Ivan Nova gets the go while the Yankees face Francisco Liriano. Comment away.

  • Captain leadoff home run. Someone really needs to remind him about how washed up he is.

  • Back to back walks loads the bases for Granderson.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:22 pm
  • Granderson grounds to first; they get Jones at second but Cano scores. 2-0 Yanks.

  • Jayson Nix down swinging to end the first.

  • Well, 2 runs is better than none…right ag????

    It would be awesome if Nova got back on track tonight.

  • Top first that is. I wonder if Jones might get a payback for the takeout slide on Ramirez…

  • 1.5 day workshop….goal is to knock it out in 1 day. We already swung an extra night in Sin City, so a second would be ridiculous.

    I may be calling you and IH to come bail me out?????

  • Wise grounds a single past a diving jogging Jeter.

  • Is it just me, or has out pitching staff completely fallen apart…Hiroki-san aside????

  • Nova walks Youk. Ruh-roh.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:32 pm
  • No sense wasting time watching this one either.

    Nova is finished. Another Yankee bust pitcher.

    Oh well.

  • Wild pitch.. Martin throws to second and gets Youk by a mile. Wise takes third easily.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:34 pm
  • Would have been a wild pitch that is.. Then Dunn does what he does whenever he doesn’t go yard.. K for the second out.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:35 pm
  • Roller to Jeter on the far side.. long throw, gets Konerko by about.. oh.. 10 or 15 minutes. Man he is slow.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:36 pm
  • It was a wild pitch since it let Wise get third.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:37 pm
  • Nice job for Nova to get out of that mess somehow.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:39 pm
  • Rios triples to right-center.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:44 pm
  • AJ flies to left, deep enough for Rios to tag and score. Good throw by Jones, but to no avail. 2-1 Yanks.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 8:47 pm
  • Konerko ties it with a solo shot in the 4th.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 9:19 pm
  • Grand slam for Youk. Fuck. I think I’ll go yell at my dog for a bit.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 9:45 pm
  • Didn’t help.

    attackgerbil August 21, 2012, 11:26 pm
  • As expected…failure.

    Look, I’m not just being negative here. This team is not good enough. Period.

    Old, slow, average defense, average AT BEST pitching, and WAY too dependent on the HR.

    I really hope I am wrong obviously, but pretty much everything is pointing to another first round exit. Hell, we could blow the East with the stupid Rays breathing down our necks.

    OH, and with this new payroll bullshit, coupled with the utter failure of Cashman to put any good players in the farm system. The 80’s are right around the corner my friends.

    Fact.
