Twenty-One Skidoo: Jays-Yanks Gamer II

C.C. Sabathia returns to the rotation tonight with his team a major-leagues-best 21 games over .500, and nine games in front of the rest of the division, in which all teams are currently .500 or better. The Blue Jays sit right at .500 and have placed slugger extraordinaire Jose Bautista on the 15 day DL.

Brett Cecil pitches for the Jays at The Stadium. Comment away.

  • Brett Gardner has had ANOTHER set-back. I doubt we see him again this year, if ever. Bizarre and hugely disappointing. As potent as this offense and bullpen are, and as competent as the starting pitching is, I just don’t see a station-to-station offense of older, slower, sluggers going very far in the post-season, even if they rack up impressive win totals in the regular season. I really saw Gardner as a critical component and am very bummed about this.

  • It’s weird that they can’t figure out what is wrong with him?

    He was just starting to find his groove too. I have to think this is one of those guys that fades away…bummer indeed IH.

    Joba is almost back though and CC IS back tonight.

  • Did I mention I traded for CC in fantasy???

    Straight up for Cain. I have about 1/2 of the Yankees on my team.

    I’m not into it though, this is the first year and I don’t watch any other teams so it’s a lot of work.

    5-0.

  • Bases loaded with no outs for A-Fail…

    BUT, since it’s 5-0 and there is no pressure I GUARANTEE he knocks in a few here…

  • Swisher is completely fucking worthless.

  • Game-ending DP on a great play by Tex…

    Another save for Sori…

    Victory. Sweet, sweet victory.

  • Clay Rapada just bungled a likely game-ending double play and at least a sure second out in the 9th into a bases loaded one-out jam. They have to bring soriano despite coming into the inning with a 5-run lead. Rapada is a house of horrors when it comes to fielding bunts. But Soriano induces the game-ending DP line out to Teix. Sweet. Game. Force Rapada to field bunts every day for the rest of the year.

  • Won another series and the lead grows by the day…

    Good times.

  • I brain-farted that it was actually “23 — not “21 — skidoo.” And honestly, I spent the time to look it up because I was concerned it might be “skee”-doo, not “ski”, missing the idiom entirely. Dumbass.

  • You are too hard on yourself dude…
