Burnett has three wins. Comment away. ← Andy Pettitte’s Leverage Says “Hi” → Hip Replacement 37 replies on “Back Home Again” Though AJ is pitching a very good 2-hitter into the 7th, Humber is pitching a NO-HITTER…did you hear that? A N…O……H…I…T…T…E…R!!!!!!! Hello?!?!?! Bueller??!!??!! End this bulls%$t now! Thank you A-Rod – single with one out in the 7th. Now to end the shutout… Assuming AJ is done after 8. Very good start. I certainly can’t say anything good about the offense. I can’t recall a single solidly hit ball. Superb outing by Burnett. 8 IP, 1 ER, 2BB, 3H. His ball was moving everywhere without bouncing three feet in front of the plate or hitting anyone. And he never had the typical meltdowninning we’ve come to expect and dread from him… Yanks need to scratch a run out before logging 6 more outs… I swear Chavez comes up with a big hit every game I see him. Almost got thrown out, can’t be caught looking back to the plate when you’re stealing.. Jeter grounds out to the pitcher. Wouldn’t have scored a run but might’ve been an infield single with a little luck. Heart of the order up bottom 9, let’s see if he can do it. Soriano gets a go to try to hold CWS. AJ is really good in April. Let’s hope this season he stays that way. Wow, what was that? Soriano surrenders a popup infield base hit. Soriano really should’ve gotten that one, probably, Jeter races in but it was not popped enough to get to it, about 5 feet behind the mound. Hmm, looked like Jeter really didn’t want to dive. Fluky hit indeed. I swear, Soriano either needs a massive attitude-adjustment or his facial expression really micommunicates what’s on his mind. I don’t know if he could have made that play behind the mound, but man, he sure couldn’t look more disinterested if he tried. And he has looked like that all year. I have to imagine he simply always looks like that. Ya, looks like if he kept running full sprint and dove he might’ve gotten it, like the time he ran into the stands. I guess the stakes was not enough for him, or he doesn’t think he could get to it (the angle is questionable anyways).. Yeah, hard to tell, Lar. Let’s just say that Soriano’s indifference gave Michael Kay a way not to talk about Jeter’s slowness or lack of interest in diving… Rough throw from Martin, a slightly better throw or a better tag/catch by Cano would’ve got him out. Them are the breaks, let’s hold hold hold. If Cano holds onto that its a CS. Instead, man in scoring position with one out. Speaking of which, the only part of Russell Martin’s game that has bothered me is exactly that – he has a seemingly strong arm but it is not at all accurate. he has thrown multiple balls into the outfield (both going to first and to second) and has sent Cano diving for balls again and again. I always find it more amusing when the pitcher points at the ball, and it goes to the warning track, but at least those were usually caught. Lost him on from a 1-2 count, and the Yanks’ hole just doubled. “lack of interest in diving” SF, are you really trying to start BS here? Really? Jeter did pointed to himself my bad. I don’t have audio, by the way, so maybe this was brought up and I’m being obvious. Soriano is starting his NYY career by making his way on my Least Favorite Recent Yankees list… Massive extra run there resulting from one of the weakest hits imaginable and a CS that shoulda, woulda, coulda been. Oh well. Let’s see if we can get a couple more outs here Soriano before it gets any worse. And it is raining again. I swear the water is following the Yankees this year. Soriano possibly not getting that 2-2 pitch call. And walks Dunn, of the three true outcome. Now this is getting a little out of hand. Smooth and sexy DP to end the inning. Got out of that one, but the offense will have to pick it up for AJ and Soriano. Yanks turn two. Now the meat of their order has to plate two. At least. Well, Guillen has been complaining that he has no closer…it has been one of the White Sox’s biggest weaknesses. Let’s see if the Yanks can capitalize. Now there’s a solidly hit ball. Grandy’s getting a fan club. Leadoff man on. Curtis is monsrous this year when ahead in the count. Not so much when behind. Come on Teix. Wow. Horrific gut-punching DP by Teix just as Santos was looking wild. Damn. No, not at all IH. But it looked like Jeter stopped short, and all I am saying is that Soriano was the easier target, especially for Michael Kay. It was more media crit, I can’t say with any authority that Jeter should have dived. Great start changed in just a second. Ack! It’s up to A-Rod… I think Jeter was playing a little far back to get that and – if he did anything wrong – it was taking a hesitation step back when the ball was hit. But I honestly don’t think a dive would have gotten him anything. And A-Rod strikes out. Slowly. Rough one. But Chicago pitched them great. Oh well. And A-Rod was ready to go home apparently. “And A-Rod was ready to go home apparently.” Exactly. It’s baseball, you will lose at least 40 games, I’ll accept it, I guess. Great pitching obviously by CWS. Tough loss tonight. Had some customers with Yankees tickets in the legends section and many of the seats were empty. We had lots of cheap seats available on our website http://www.slickseats.com too. Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
