Unfortunately for the Yankees, bad A.J. Burnett showed up in the bottom of the 1st inning tonight, yielding 4 runs on 4 hits before recording his first out of the game. Equally unfortunate was that John Lackey was on his game, making four runs seem like an impossible hill to [...]
My good friend and fellow passionate Yankee fan Eric backs Joe Girardi’s decision to once again start Jose Molina in the postseason as A.J. Burnett’s personal caddy. I still disagree with this move, so I thought it might be fun to do a little point-counterpoint.
Mollo: For the third time [...]
Talk about a heartbreaker. In a must-win game for the Angels that saw the Yankees jump out to a 3-0 lead, the Angels stormed back to win Game 3 of the ALCS 5-4 in the bottom of the 12th on a walk-off double by backup catcher Jeff Mathis.
The Yankees beat the Angels 4-3 in the bottom of the 13th of Game 2 of the ALCS on a Melky Cabrera walk-off groundout-turned-bizarre-error by Angels’ second baseman Maicer Izturis, which allowed Jerry Hairston to score the winning run on what was essentially a fielder’s choice gone bad.
I hate to keep ragging on our manager, as I do think he’s done a fantastic job this year. Unfortunately, these last two games haven’t exactly inspired a ton of confidence despite both surprisingly resulting in victories, mostly in spite of the managerial decisions that were made.
The Yankees took their first series from [...]
Joe Girardi apparently has zero interest in winning this afternoon and subsequently going into the off day on a high note.
SG at RLYW has the Yankee lineup under the heading “1962 Mets,” which may actually be generous. To wit:
The Yankees finally beat the Angels on Los Angeles’ home field last night, 6-5, in a game in which the Yankees led 5-0 at one point and wouldn’t end until nearly 2am on the east coast. The Yankees also clinched their 14th playoff appearance in 15 seasons during the game, as the Texas [...]
As always, TSJC of RAB commenting fame hits the nail on the head: “Forget the fact that Swish doesn’t bunt with great alacrity for a second. Frank Francisco threw 23 pitches last night. 10 of them were balls.
Think about that for a second. Nick Swisher collects walks like they’re going [...]
A four-run lead, even with 8 innings left to play, felt pretty good with Joba on the mound. It’s a shame that erratic Joba showed up, in a game that was very winnable. I gave up at 10-5 — as good as the Yankees have been at coming from behind this year, five runs seemed [...]
