The Yankees' pythag is 25-18. Doesn't that make you feel better? Me neither.
Chris Capuano and AJ Burnett are the starters for today's game at The Stadium.
A blackout game for me. At least I get to listen to Suzyn and John, should I want. Down two runs in the first.
AJ all over the place here in the 6th. 3rd walk of the night and now 2-0…Rothschild goes out to remind him what a strike is.
Boone Logan warming.
What kind of a name is “Boone”?
Nice play by nunez to get the force at second. Then Cano muffs an inning-ending DP…ball took a bad hop, to be fair, and Cano got one at 1st. Then makes a nice play for the 3rd.
Looks like a good visit by Rothschild…
Granderson looked lost tonight against Capuano until that laser HR. 2 Ks and down 0-2, then BAM. 8 HRs this year off lefties. Remember when people said he couldn’t hit vs. lefties?
Teix Ks on a nice change.
A-Rod just hit an excuse-me HR. Bombers showed up tonight.
6-3 good guys. Capuano pulled.
AJ into the 7th. Ks Tejada. Reyes up.
Reyes gets his 3rd hit of the night – a single. He’s as good as on second. AJ pulled for Boone. Nice game for AJ on the whole.
Boone single – 1st and 3rd for Beltran – the tying run. Boone just sucks – please face it Girardi. He pulls him for Robertson – the Yanks’ version of Seal Team 6.
Ks Beltran on 4 pitches. Bay up.
Induces in-field popout from Bay. Another awesome job by Robertson. I gotta look up his stats on inherited runners stranded. He has been fantastic in tight spots all year.
joba – 2 groundouts and a K. Nice.
Ayala with two backward-Ks and then retires Reyes (finally). Yanks win. Nice night for AJ, Robertson, Ayala, and the bats.
I got to watch this one. I’m starting to wonder if Granderson’s improvement against lefties means he’ll reach superstar status by the end of the season.
Joba has looked very good the last few times I’ve seen him, and Robertson’s stuff is absolutely filthy.
