Javier…I’m Sorry, Baby…
Yanks Lose, Javy Struggles
Last night’s game didn’t have too many positives. That could’ve been my fault. I wasn’t watching the game like I should’ve been. Instead, I was flipping back and forth from the Yankees to the Celebrity Apprentice. See, the Apprentice is on on Sundays, but I didn’t watch it last time because of Opening Night. So I figured I’d catch the rerun on Friday. But then I realized that Friday was Javier’s debut! How could I miss that? I only gave Javier half my heart last night. And he struggled. My fault, Javybaby. The Yankees lost 9-3 last night, and I am disgusted with myself.
Pitching Analysis: I watched the first three innings of the game without flipping channels, because the Celebrity Apprentice didn’t come on until 8. Javier looked very good…striking out Rays left and right. He didn’t allow a run through the first 3 innings. But after that, well…things fell apart.
Oh, Javier! I’m so upset…I’m sorry you struggled so much…you poor thing, you look flustered.
The 4th inning was gross. When I flipped back, the Rays had died the game at 2. By the end of the inning, it was 5-2 Rays, thanks to a homer by Carlos Pena. I was worried then, because I say how well Price was throwing. It was going to be a long night for the Bombers.
Back to the Apprentice I went.
When I flipped back, I saw Javy had completely lost it. It was 8-2. I didn’t know what had happened at the time, but the Rays were hitting him hard. Aybar hit a 2-run homer as well. Javy looked flustered, tired, and beaten. He was pulled for another sexy pitcher, Sergio Mitre. Sergio was not accustomed to coming in in the middle of an inning, and he surrendered another run. Aah! But other than that, Sergio looked good…very good
Offensive Analysis: There was not much offense last night, but I’m not mad at the Yankees. David Price is to blame. Congrats on your good pitching, David. We’ll getya next time.
The only offense came in the 4th and the 8th. In the 4th, A-Rod hit a 2-run inside the park home run! Okay, okay…it was a triple, RBI that scored Nick Johnson (who finally hit! Now we are just waiting on Tex), and an error which allowed Alex to score…forgive me for embellishing. I switched channels just in time to see it. That gave the Yanks a 2-0 lead, which would soon vanish.
The 3rd run came in the 8th inning, where Jeet doubled, and scored on a Nick Johnson double. I was annoyed that they didn’t score more. There were none out, and a man on second. But they couldn’t scrape across anything else. It was just 9-3…
It wasn’t fun last night…Let me apologize to my boys: Yankees, I am terribly sorry. You know how it is: you get hooked on those shows and look forward to them all week. And I didn’t watch in Sunday to see you guys. Last night’s episode wasn’t even good…it was upseting. Donald Trump fired Rod Blagojevich. I wanted Blago to stay longer because he’s funny. But no. Trump had to ruin everything.
”Governor, you’re fired.” LOL
I should have just forgot about the show. I betrayed you guys. I’m so so sorry…especially to you Javier. You were good when I watched you, but lost it when I left. Please don’t hate me.
And Granderson! Oh, I barely saw you last night…I miss you ♥ All I saw was the last pitch of one of your at-bats where you struckout. That left an icky taste in my mouth.
Yankees, I won’t ever make the same mistake. Better luck today, guys.
I’ll be watching.
