What A Boring Game

Yanks are 1-Hit Versus Jays

Last night’s game was the most boring game I have seen all year. Nothing good happened for the Yankees. It was very frustrating. Ugh. The Yankees’ winning streak was snapped last night as they lost to the Blue Jays 6-0.

Pitching Analysis: Joba Chamberlain had another short start for the Yankees. He did not pitch well. He went 3 innings and allowed 3 runs, 2 earned, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. He threw about 60 pitches. Do the math and that is 20 pitches per inning. That is unacceptible. After 3 innings, Mark Melancon took over and gave up 1 run in 2 innings. He was absolutely wild. He hit like 10 batters. He could not control anything he put inside. Jonathan Albaladejo went next, and he pitched a scoreless inning. Michael Dunn pitched next, and by this time I wasn’t watching. He gave up 2 runs in 2/3 of an inning. Last came Edwar Ramirez, who pitched a scoreless inning and a third. The pitching wasn’t great last night, but all the Jays needed to win was 1 run.

Joba Chamberlain allows six hits and three runs in just three innings of work.

A frustrated Joba.

Defensive Analysis: The defense didn’t help Joba out too much. There were plays that should have been made that the defense screwed up. In the first inning, Aaron Hill hit a ball to deep right that Hinske ran to get under. He jumped, and the ball went off his glove. Hill had a double. It was not the easiest play to make, but I am confident that Swisher would have made it, however silly he had to be to glove it. Later in the inning, Ramiro Pena made an error on a routine grounder. He lifted his glove, anticipating a high hop on the artificial turf, but instead the ball stayed down and got through, allowing a run to score. It was not a pretty defensive night for the Yanks.

Not a pretty play.

Offensive Analysis: Where were the Bombers last night? The Yankees looked dead at the plate. The only hit was off the bat of Ramiro Pena. That was it, accept for 3 walks scattered into the lineup. The Yankees failed to make adjustments last night. They stared at strikes, fell behind, and wound up striking out. It was awful and upseting to watch, which is why I didn’t watch the whole game. After 6 innings I called it quits. 1 hit? Come on.

It was an ugly game all around last night. But luckily, the Red Sox lost. That must kill them. The Yankees finally lost a game, and then they lose too. Ha. I guess the Yankee loss was not so bad. I mean, they didn’t play well, but it didn’t cost them anything. It cost me time, though. It was boring. Whatever. I am sure the Yankees will bounce back with another 7 game winning streak. It seems like they always do. 1 loss in every 8 games? Hey, I’ll take it. GO YANKEES!!!

I hate boring games like that. Especially when the opposing pitcher is no-hitting you while your pitcher is getting hit like crazy. UGH. Well, hopefully the Yankess will play a better game for you tonight!!

Boring was pretty much the word of the day during the game. It sucked because we’re better than getting one-hit, but it was Roy Halladay not someone like Mitre.

I’m sure the offense will come tonight for Andy, at least it better. I can’t see Chicago getting lucky twice. LOL

Melancon “hit like 10 batters.” LOL! It did feel like that. I know they weren’t intentional, but I was watching via the Toronto feed and the announcers were saying they’re sick of Yankees pitchers hitting Jays batters and there might be retaliation today. Uh-oh.

Boring games that suck. Especially when they get you like that. Hopefully you will bounce back. It’s the Jays after all…
How is Mitre doing these days?

That Hinske play was kind of infuriating, I can’t lie. But still, it was Roy Halladay. It seems since the bats were dead, we fans were dead as well. It was pretty dull to watch. Ah, well. You can’t take anything away from Doc. He pitched an awesome game. Now it’s Andy’s turn!
