The Bombers Bombed Again!

Yanks Blowout Mariners

Last night’s game was a nice bounce-back win. On Friday, the only offense for the Yanks came from 2 sac flies, 1 by Arod and 1 by Tex in that 3-2 loss. But last night was different. The Yankees went on another offensive explosion as they beat the Mariners 10-1.

Pitching Analysis: C “Cy” Sabathia was superb again last night. He went 7 innings of 1-run ball, and he struck out 8. CC now has 18 wins. I believe he deserves the Cy Young award. He has went above and beyond my expectations for him. Every week, he goes out there and throws 7 or 8 beyond quality innings. Even when he doesn’t have his best stuff, CC takes the ball and still manages to go deep into the game, allowing minimal damage. And his presence in the clubhouse makes a world of difference to this club. CC is as great a guy as he is a pitcher. I really think he should win the Cy Young, but that’s just me.

CC Sabathia allows only one run in seven innings of work for the Yankees.

CC was excellent. A liner hit him right below the Adam’s Apple, but he toughed it out. CC rocks!

Brian Bruney, who changed his number from 38 to 99, pitched a scoreless 8th. Jonathan Albaladejo pitched a scoreless 9th. His eyes are looking a bit better. The pitching was fabulous last night. It was fabulous on Friday, but A.J. did not get a win because of that blown save incident. But at least he is coming around. If CC and A.J. can be sharp going into October, I believe the Yanks have a great shot at going all the way. When they are on, they are the best 1-2 starters in baseball.

Defensive Analysis: The defense was solid once again. Arod made an error, but it didn’t cost anything. I remember he made a great play on a slow roller, which he barehanded and fired to Tex. But the runner was safe. It was still an incredible play just to make it close. My man Francisco Cervelli looked soooo cute behind the plate last night. Everything he does is cute. He showed off his arm last night, chasing Beltre back to second base. When Beltre tried to steal third, Cervelli used his cannon arm and fired a rocket strike to Arod. The ball beat Beltre there, but it got knocked out of Alex’s glove. That’s okay, Cervelli. “A” for effort, you cute thing, you!

Offensive Analysis: The Bronx Bombers bombed in Seattle last night, that’s for sure. 10 runs on 18 hits. Tex had 2 homers and 5 RBI’s. My Cervelli had a nice night at the plate; he went 2 for 4 with an RBI of his own. There was a lot of offense last night.

The Yankees played good baseball last night, and unlike Friday night, the results showed it with a “W”. The heroes for the victory are CC Sabathia for his stellar performance once again, Francisco Cervelli, just because I love him so much, and Mark Teixeira, for his 2 homers, his triple, his 5 ribis, and his cute face. The Yankees still have a 6 game lead over the Red Sox who cheat at Fenway. But those Smelly Sox were in Baltimore last night, so I guess they won fair and square. The season is winding down. It is very sad. I love baseball and I love my Yankees and I am going to miss them more that anything when the season is over. I guess they just jave to win the World Series for me, so the offseason is shorter. Hear that, boys? Go all the way this year. I want #27! GO YANKEES!!!!!!

Your sweetie Cervelli did a great job catching and was great at the plate too. He just got a little carried away trying to stretch that single into a double, but aggressiveness is good so I’m all for it. Let’s hope we close out the trip to Seattle with a “W” before moving on to Anaheim.

We needed a big game to come back from Mo’s uncharacteristic blip the night before. With our ace on the mound, we’re usually guaranteed 7 strong innings of pitching – we just needed the offense to wake up, and they did. Can’t ask for more.

Good win for the Yanks. Teix was incredible. Time to win the series today!

I was so happy Frankie got the start yesterday! He’s so friggin’ adorable. I can’t stop saying it! LOL. After the first game that felt completely fake because of the ending, it was high time our boys did some damage. I just wish they were doing the same right now! As I type this, they’re intentionally walking Ichiro to load the bases with one out. I am not amused! This better work out!!!

I must say, some of your Yanks are pretty cute!! But I still think Jacoby still is the hottest. Don’t you agree?

Nice post~

The Yanks had a shot today to clinch a playoff spot, but didn’t get it done. It must be fun watching a contender:(

Its great to see the Yanks bomb away. Today though, they got bombed themselves. It sucks but I know they will come back strong. They are the only ones who can beat themselves, they have the power. Hmmm.. maybe they will win an award at the Emmy’s for best baseball team? Huh? Its a possibility.

Hi! Thanks so much for the comment and sweet words! YES, we’re two pretty girls that can talk baseball ALL DAY LONG :] Last night was sad for us since they truly “bombed away” but Joba didn’t do so well for you guys today…which is good for us I suppose but at least you can keep rooting for your team post-season without having to change gears and cheer for some other team (which I’ll have to inevitably do! hehe). Awesome entry and awesome blog! Love it! http://diamondgirl55.mlblogs.com

I am crossing my fingers for a Yanks-Phils World Series! My 2 fav teams…that would be AWESOME!
