Weekday Day Game: Jays-Yanks III

Yanks down 3-2 in the third with CC looking mediocre and the Yankee defense looking even worse with two early errors. ¬†Happ is on the mound for the Jays in this series finale before the Yanks get a rare late-season home-off-day and the dangerous O’s come to town on Thursday.

  • If Cano is so good…he should be able to carry the team for a few weeks…

    So far. Total, abject failure.

  • Kurtis???????

    BIG 2-out 2-RBI double…

    krueg August 29, 2012, 2:14 pm
  • 2nd and 3rd, no outs…nothing from Nix, IBB to Jeter, horrible K from Swisher…

  • 2nd and 3rd with no outs…

    Bases loaded with 1 out for the #2 and #3 hitters…

    ZERO FUCKING RUNS.

    This team is so terrible with men on base. It makes no sense.

  • And then a K from Cano. What a failure with RISP…

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 2:38 pm
  • Through 4 innings each, Happ has thrown 92 pitches and CC has thrown 53…that SHOULD bode well, but we really need CC to settle down…

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 2:40 pm
  • Both Happ and CC have incredibly efficient 5th innings throwing 8 total pitches each…onto the 6th. We need insurance runs and/or a strong complete game from CC, esp as Robertson is unavailable and Soriano may very well be unavailable…

  • Way to give a strong ace performance CC…5-4 Jays on a 2-run HR by Escobar.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 2:56 pm
  • CC blows another lead…

    I love this team. They really want it bad, that’s what I love the most…

    krueg August 29, 2012, 2:56 pm
  • …and this lineup is pure power for the Jays. I mean, playoff-caliber…

    OH WAIT. They are the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of that…

  • No outs, man on first. CC getting pummeled. Gave up 5 hits in the 3rd inning and has given up 3 hits so far here in the 6th.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 2:59 pm
  • CC gets the second out on his seventh strikeout of the day. To bad he has given up almost that many runs to go along with the Ks…

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:03 pm
  • Heccevarria-ariagopolous-pompadour singles. A one run-deficit vs. 4 innings of the Toronto bullpen is not insurmountable…but you gotta hold them here CC…

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:05 pm
  • 8th K. finally ends the inning. So he has given up 9 hits, all across two innings. Very, very un-CC-like. Not a good time to slump CC.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:09 pm
  • Nix with a no-out double off the wall. Let’s do this Ichiro…

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:14 pm
  • Thanks to the Yankee defense CC’s 2 earned runs turned into 5 total runs for Toronto.

    Please don’t break my heart again with no-out-RISP failure…….

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:15 pm
  • Ichiro Ks faster than I can say I should be working. Chavez pinch hitting

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:15 pm
  • Ground out moves Nix to 3rd. Jeter with 2 outs…

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:16 pm
  • Jeter Ks. Leadoff double and they get nothing. Men on 2nd and 3rd and they get nothing. If this team were a pack of lions you could throw baby lambs in their cage and they’d starve to death. Yes, it’s a stupid and non-sensical metaphor. I’m too annoyed to think straight. I’m starting to fear the Baltimore Orioles. And that just makes me more annoyed.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:21 pm
  • Ichiro makes a great catch on Lind’s deep drive to end the inning. Runs please.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:26 pm
  • One pitch one out. Cano up with Jones on deck. May be the last shot that the (rancid) meat of our order gets today…

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:30 pm
  • Cano with a double. That is halfway to home for most teams.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:31 pm
  • Jones Ks. UN-BE-LIEV-ABLE. How many Ks is that with RISP?!?!!?!?!

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:34 pm
  • Weak groundout to 1st by Granderson ends the inning. Great job fellas.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:39 pm
  • 2nd with no outs…

    Down a run at home in the 7th…

    Involved in a suddenly heating up pennant race…

    Still cannot score a single, fucking run.

    Boy, look out for this juggernaut in October baby!

  • 4 pitches by Lowe: 2 hits, no outs. Game about to get out of hand.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:44 pm
  • Logan comes in to try to mop up Lowe’s mess.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:47 pm
  • K. Nice job Boone. 1 out – not nearly out of the woods yet. Girardi bringing in Eppley. I’m out of here. I’ve got to work and this is just depressing baseball anyway.

    IronHorse - YF August 29, 2012, 3:50 pm
  • Bases loaded in the 9th…with a 1 run deficit…

    2 outs.

    Joba in.

    I wonder how many he will give up?

    This season is over.

    krueg August 29, 2012, 4:33 pm
  • Game.

    Jones blows a play, Joba gets rocked…

    Fucked. Totally fucked.

  • Today’s story: Let down by 1. our defense; 2. our ace; 3. our hitters with RISP.

    With Teix and A-Rod out, we may encounter #1 a fair amount in the coming weeks.

    We shouldn’t encounter #2 much – CC is solid.

    We have been dealing with #3 all season long and there is no reason to think it will improve now that some of our best hitters are out.

  • Sox are in an absolute spin dive. Not that it particularly matters or is surprising given THE TRADE or anything…just mildly annoying now.
