HFS that 6th was crazy. AJ through the Rays like butter w/ 2ks, you-know-what intact. command of the zone with the fastball, wicked curve. awesome.

Six innings over. Time to start not-talking-about-it.
If Burnett’s at 100+ pitches after 7, do you keep him out there? This early in the season, with his history?

I always fear something like this will happen the day after the Yankees get their asses handed to them. I wonder if this is just my selective memory, or if they do bounce back in a big way.

Yeah YF, 22 pitches will put him in triple digits, and that’s not hard for a strikeout pitcher like Burnett to do in one inning. I think I’m with you, 120 is my limit for him.
FSP, it does feel like this always happens after a blowout doesn’t it? Whenever the Sox score 10+ runs, the next day they’re always struggling to take the donuts off the board.

Booooo that’s lame, my hasn’t caught up yet so I still see Crawford at the plate.
Swisher did the right thing. It’s a close game, you don’t want to try to dive and possibly let it go past him.

I don’t know how “WTP” caught on, but I like it. Well, here’s the crucial 8th inning.
Zobrist fouls out to left – it’s amusing with the bullpen in the foul territory..

My brother played on the varsity highschool team as a sophomore, and everyone used to yell “WTP” (warning track power) whenever he would hit it deep. At the end of the season he finally hit a homer, and after that it all seemed to come easier for him. That’s my earliest memory of the term.
Burnett mows through the 8th with only 10 pitches. There’s really a huge difference in his performance from the stretch and from the windup. Mo should be all ready to go for the 9th.

Haha, actually, the same thing happened to me.. more of a speedy/gap hitter back in high school, so I’m all too familiar with the term.. just wondering how it caught on here at YFSF! ;)

Nice Lar. I was strictly a singles hitter in high school; I could take pretty much any pitch and tap it over the infielders’ heads. No power though, and only average speed. I was a rocking pitcher for a while though, until I went to varsity and totally stunk up the place. Shoulda done more long-toss.
Jeter and Tex have sub .250 averages, and everyone else on the team is overachieving. This is not right.

Gardner driving it to center field, and totally could’ve been a triple if it was not a ground rule double.
4-2 Yanks and maybe Gardner will earn some respect. Jeter trying to add to the lead with 2 outs, men on 2nd and 3rd.

Wow, they used a Ortiz-like shift on Teixiera batting from his left.. it worked though since he grounded out right to the “2nd baseman”.

Bruney strikes out the side with what seems like nothing but fastballs. Though it looked like the 4 run inning and 5 run lead demoralized them a little bit..
