Close, But No
No victory pie last night. They tried to be The Drama Club. I thought they were going to do it. Ah, well, at least they lost to the Rangers. I still want to win, though. Whatever. The Yankees lost to the Rangers 10-9.
Save it for some other time, A.J.
Pitching Analysis: Joba Chamberlain pitched again on wacky rest, and I think it is because of that that he stunk. Joba only went 4 innings, threw 96 pitches, and gave up 7 runs in 9 hits. It was gross. The Yankees had a 4-0 lead. Then Joba made it 4-2 thanks to an Andrus double. The 4th inning was utterly disgusting. With 2 out, Pudge walked, and that started it. Joba could NOT get the final out. 4-3. 4-4. Before I knew it, it was 7-4 Rangers. Not at all a good performance by Joba.
He looks pissed, and he should be.
Chad Gaudin pitched 3 & 2/3 innings, allowing 3 runs. Damaso Marte was the only good one. (I can’t believe I am saying that!) He went an inning and a third of scoreless ball. Obviously, the pitching (or lack of) was the reason the Yanks lost last night.
Defensive Analysis: The defense was pretty good last night. In the 1st, Joba was in one of his many jams. 1st and 3rd with 1 out. But he got Byrd to ground into an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play, which was turned beautifully by Cano. Nick Swisher made another great play in right. In the 3rd, Michael Young hit a sharp liner to right, which Swish caught backhanded while sliding. Yeah, Swish!
Offensive Analysis: The Yankees jumped out with 4 runs in the 1st. It was all done with 2 outs. A 2 out walk for Tex, followed by an Arod single. Matsui’s double scored them both. Jorge hit a 2-run homer. If anyone else was on the mound, I think we would’ve won that game. (Well, maybe not Mitre..OH! I’m sorry, sexy! jk,jk…) The Yanks tacked on one in the 5th via a solo homer by Cano to shorten the defecit to 8-5.
The 9th is where it got interesting. I had the TV on, but I wasn’t watching. I was talkng to fellow blogger EJ on Facebook. The Yankees got the bases loaded with no one out, and scored a bunch of runs. I thought I smelled a walkoff. My man Melky came up with the score 10-9, and 1st and 2nd with just 1 out. I was so nervous for him. He hit a ball right on the screws, and I started to say, “YES!!!” But before I could finish saying it, I saw that Andrus somehow caught it, and he stepped on 2nd to complete the game-ending double play. You should’ve heard me. Not the kind of stuff a lady should say :) But on the replay, I don’t remember who, but that Yankee was safe sliding back to second. Poor Melky. He couldn’t have hit the ball any harder. A 10-9 loss.
It was a tough, tough loss last night. But if the Yankees HAVE to lose, I’m glad it’s to the Rangers so the Smelly Sox who cheat at Fenway don’t gain any ground. The Yanks now have a 6 game lead over those Sox. Not bad, but I’m insatiable when it comes to a division lead. I always want more. I just have that feeling that the Yankees are going to win tonight. I sure hope I am right. MAKE ME RIGHT, YANKS!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
I’m sure we’ll see it again.
And They Brought The “Big Fly” With Them
Now that was more like it! Those were the Yankees I wanted to see. They smashed 5 homers off Beckett. And now CC leads the league in wins with 15. And the Yankees won the series in Fenway. My Grandma and I watched the game together. Ahhh. We can breathe again. She is a big fan, and she gets angry when they play badly, so we were both happy yesterday. The Yankees beat the smelly sox last night 8-4.
Pitching Analysis: CC Sabathia, our expensive ace, pitched for us last night. Once again, he earned his money and did a great job. CC went 6 & 2/3 innings and allowed 4 runs, 3 of which were earned, on 8 hits, 0 walks, and 8 strikeouts. I love CC.
Hear that, CC? I love you :)
In the 2nd with 2 outs, the Red Sox started hitting. They were obviously cheating like they always do in Fenway. Lowell doubled, Baldelli singled, and Varitek doubled. Now it was 2-2.
CC gave up an unearned run in the 4th due to Cano’s stupidity. In the 6th, Pukilis led off with a double, and he wound up scoring on a sac fly by Baldelli. They really didn’t hit CC too hard.
Phil Hughes pitched a scorless inning and a third, and Mo pitched a scorless 9th. The Yanks were great on the mound yesterday.
Defensive Analysis: It was a bit sloppy. I don’t know what happened to Cano yesterday. He was awful in the field. In the 1st inning, he stumbled over an easy grounder by Ellsbury, allowing him to reach 1st. But that was quickly erased after he was picked off. Then in the 4th, a pop up was hit to shallow right. Cano got under it, but it was a bit behind him, and he completely missed it! That scored a run! In the 6th, a ball was hit to shallow left that Jeter and Damon couldn’t get. Damon dived and missed. That led to a run later in the inning. In the 8th, Swish made a nice sliding catch on a liner by Lowell.
Offensive Analysis: The Bombers had their big bats swingin’ last night. 5 homers off Beckett. Quite an accomplishment. On the first pitch of the game, Jeter hit a homer to right. 1 pitch, 1-0 Yankees. In the 2nd on the first pitch, Hideki Matsui hit a homer. 2-0. Haha Beckett. You suck. In the 3rd, Jeter got a single with 1 out. Johnny had a long at-bat, and got himself a single. Tex knocked in Jeter and found himself on 2nd base. Arod got an RBI groundout. 4-2!
In the 4th, Robinson Cano hit a solo home run. That made up for his errors. 5-2 Yanks. In the 5th as I talked to my aunt on the phone, I heard my family cheer from the living room. It was Arod. He hit a 2-run homer with 2 out and 2 strikes. But what was even more amazing was that my Mom actually cheered for him. She actually gave him the credit he deserved for once. I couldn’t believe it. Thanks to Arod, the Yanks had a 7-3 lead. Good job sexy. (Mitre is still hotter!)
In the 8th, Matsui came up. He hit a solo shot around the foul poll in right. I love how the ESPN announcers gave Hideki no credit. They said he didn’t have a good swing at the ball and that he didn’t square it up. Does it matter? He hit a home run! Jeez! Everyone on that channel needs their head examined. They are all retards.
It was a fun game to watch. I was proud of my Yankees for hitting Beckett hard. The heroes are CC Sabathia, for his solid start, and the Bronx Bombers, especially Matsui for going deep twice. The Yankees now have a 7.5 game lead over the smelly Sox. Who would’ve predicted this earlier in the year? Not many. God, do I love my Yankees! I LOVE YOU, BOYS!!!
Yankees Lose In Blowout Fashion, No Pitching Or Hitting
Alright. Yesterday’s game was pretty gross. I didn’t even watch the whole thing. I kept thinking if I watched any more then I would throw up. It was disgusting. Burnett stank and the Yankees stranded everyone on base. And I had to hear those moronic FOX announcers openly cheer for the Red Sox. Couldn’t game 1 have been on FOX, instead of yesterday’s when the Yankees stank for the whole world to see? Ugh. The Yankees lost yesterday 14-1.
Pitching Analysis: All of the Yankee pitchers stank yesterday. Burnett started, and he had his worst outing yet. He went just 5 innings and gave up 9 runs on 9 hits. I don’t want to explain how he gave up the runs because I throw up a little when I think of Red Sox rounding 3rd and touching home. It is repulsive.
I think A.J. is gonna be sick, too.
Alfredo Aceves pitched 2 innings and gave up 3 runs. David Robertson, who looks really cute wearing the high sox, pitched 1 inning and gave up 2 runs. I guess it was just one of those days where nobody can pitch.
Defensive Analysis: The defense wasn’t much of an issue. Most of the time balls were hit in spots where all the defense could do was chase it down.
Offensive Analysis: Although the pitching sucked, the lack of offense is what really made me sick. The Yankees got 12 hits, but couldn’t buy a run. The only run they got was on a homer by Nick Swisher in the 7th. That was it. They had chances to get more, but everyone failed with runners on base. EVERYONE. The team was 0 for 9 with runners in scoring position and they left 13 men on base. I feel sick just recalling it. I don’t get how one night a team bangs out 20 runs, and the next they can’t score. Hey, that’s baseball.
It ain’t easy, Joe. And sitting next to Jeet in the dugout ain’t easy either!
So the Yankees lost, but they still have a 6.5 game lead in the division. I’m still convinced that the smelly Sox cheat a bit in Fenway by stealing signs. I wish someone would comment on my theory. I want to know what people think about that. The Yankee bats are going to be tested today, going up against Beckett. But I believe the Yankees can do it. GO YANKEES!!!
And now for a quick celebrity lookalike. This one invlolves Red Sox manager Terry Francona. It was recommended to me by my brother Bobby. and I must say, it is scary good!
……Heinrich Himmler! AAAHHHH!!!
