This one’s gonna be bullet-point style, as I missed most last night’s 5-3 Yankee loss and have a variety of personal obligations to tend to:
- Ricky Romero was his usual studly self, holding the Yankees to two runs over six innings, though he wasn’t very economical about it, needing 109 pitches to get through those six frames. According to the postgame, the Yankees blew a huge opportunity in the fifth, loading the bases with no outs, but Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez — the two guys you’d most want up in that situation — couldn’t get the job done.
- I caught Alex’s last two at-bats, and he looks totally uncomfortable at the plate. I’m not going to get on him for a mini-slump considering how great he’s been, but it’s crazy how quickly a player can go from locked in to lost.
- Freddy Garcia was OK, but not great, giving up three runs over five, including a (surprise, surprise) home run to Jose Bautista. Pardon me, I mean a Jose Bautista to Jose Bautista. Bautista now has nine Bautistas on the season.
- Robinson Cano was the only Yankee to show up in this game, bashing two Jose Bautistas of his own.
- The Jays’ bullpen was as good as advertised, and Casey Janssen in particular continued his straight-up dominance of the Yankees.
- The Yankees had a huge opportunity in the eighth inning, loading the bases with one out, but unfortunately their two worst hitters — Derek Jeter and Nick Swisher — were due up, and unsurprisingly made out. I am beyond past the point with Jeter — is there anyone left who expects him to come through in any situation now? Derek simply can’t get around on the fastball, and swung at a ball for strike three. It must be incredibly difficult to play baseball with a massive fork sticking out of your back.
- Joba Chamberlain looked stellar in the eighth inning.
- The Yankees went very quietly in the bottom of the ninth against Jon Rauch.
I’m tired of the Yankees losing games to the Blue Jays, especially at home. Take these next two, please.
