Shaky Start: Yanks-Tigers Gamer II

CC is giving up early hits and the Yanks are already down 2-0 to the Tigers, who are trying to break a 7-game losing streak.  The Yanks' recent play has been sloppy but successful.  Cano is back in the line-up and Jones is in – giving Swisher his first break of the year.

Enjoy and comment on all the action here.

  • I don’t even know who is starting for Detroit because I tuned in late, but he is taking half an hour between each pitch. Gardner up with Posada on in the 2nd with one out.

  • Gardner walks. He has been putting on good ABs lately. It’s Penny pitching. And Sterling “reports” that he is upward of 49 pitches – can that be right??? I don’t think I could have heard that right. There are 2 outs and Jeter is up. He has a hit already tonight.

  • Jete grounds out. To the bottom of the 2nd. Hope CC can settle down. Sounded like he was throwing meatballs in the first.

  • CC in trouble again. 1st and 2nd, two out with Austin Jackson up. He nearly hit it out of the park last inning, but he is also a regular strike-out-victim. Let’s go CC – it’s bend-don’t-break time for the ace…

  • Those balls are finally finding holes for Jorge. I don’t know if anyone saw it when I posted it yesterday. But his BABIP was .082 prior to yesterday’s game. That’s gotta be frustrating.
    Gardner is putting together lots of quality at bats lately. He had a string of getting on base 8 plate appearances in a row before Girardi called for him to bunt late in yesterday’s game. Jeter’s looking better too.
    A-Rod is slumping badly, though.

  • Yanks offense anemic vs. Penny so far.

  • Yeah Dusty – the stat on Jorge is a great one – that’s pretty rough. And yes, A-Rod is horrible right now. I think he’s 3 for 31 now, or something close to that.

  • Sizemore with his second hit – a bloop. No outs. CC is really scuffling.

  • Penny’s thrown 60 pitches through 3 innings. Even if we can’t do much against him, he’s going to have to be pretty economical to last past 6 innings. And Detroit really don’t want to use their bullpen, which is last in the AL in just about every category.

  • Yeah, I’m feeling good about the long-term prospects of this game – just need CC to settle. Cabrera almost hit that one out. On to the 3rd…

  • Austin Jackson triples to drive in another run. Tigers up 3-1.

  • CC getting the s*%t kciked out of him now. 4-1. Sizemore 3 for 3 off him. I’m going to sleep. Good night.

  • Sometimes it’s as simple as Tigers taking advantage, while the Yanks do not..

  • Good stat on the radio: Through his first 6 years with the Yanks (this is his 6-year anniversary), Cano has more hits than any other Yankee over their first 6 years except DiMaggio. Awesome.

  • WHAT THE F%$K!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!
    Cano takes off for second inexplicably and gets thrown out. Then Posada singles.
    Then Posada takes off for second inexplicably and gets thrown out. Posada. Did the yanks flub TWO H&R plays in one inning??? What the hell? I don’t understand how this team has this record with the way they are playing.

  • I had to turn it off…day 4 of no cigarettes and I’m literally about to go on a fucking murder spree.
    No need to go into how fucking piss poor we have been playing…because we have been winning…and I hope we win but I just have to turn it off. It’s best for everyone in this area.

  • Our lineup is so damn hot and cold. Aside from Martin, no one has been consistent. It’s been crazy hot streaks or nothing at all.
