I don’t know about you, but the first 5 innings of yesterday’s game were almost unwatchable. When AJ is struggling to throw strikes, is all over the place, and allows 12 baserunners in 5 innings (5 via the Walk) plus a wild pitch, that is just ugly baseball. And it’s not as if he was getting squeezed, the strike zone was exceedingly generous at times last night. But there were a few positives from last night’s contest. First and foremost, this guy is my hero for more reasons than I could ever list. AJ righted the ship with his strong, 4 strikeout 6th inning and Boone Logan looked as good as he has all year in the 7th. It was also nice to see old pal Jason Giambi have a good showing for himself. Personally, it was a treat to watch guys like Ubaldo, Tulo and Car-Go up close after following their exploits from afar for the past few years. I know some don’t like interleague, but as a fan of the game I hope it stays around when they settle on a new CBA.
The Yankee news is pretty much all injury and rehab related. Matt already caught you up on Phil Hughes, Colon threw a 31 pitch bullpen session and Derek Jeter hasn’t made any progress with that injured calf of his. Even old pal Chien Ming Wang is beginning a rehab assignment in Hagerstown for the Nats. After last night’s game, I’m sure many fellow Yankee fans are nursing their bruised egos and cleaning the scuffmarks their shoes made to their respective TV sets.
Here’s your lineup, courtesy of Brien Heyman at LoHud:
