A forgetable game tonight in KC. Zach Greinke, 21-year-old darling of Baseball Prospectus, looked eminently beatable but somehow escaped after five innings with only 3 runs on the board for the Yanks. He certainly wasn’t more impressive than Kevin Brown, who got tagged for a hard-luck loss courtesy of the anemic attack and the usual poor defense. Some observations.
- A-Rod’s useless throw across the diamond cost a run. The YES team neglected to mention it.
- Woemack. Terrible.
- Robinson Cano has a gun.
- Bernie just might be well suited to part-time duty. A pair of doubles, tonight. Robbed by a bad call in the 8th. But boy is he slow out there in the field.
- Was that really a clutch hit by Giambi?
- Kudos to Girardi for the aggressive substitution policy.
