~~ Yankees 5, Angels 3 ~~

There are 5 T.V.’s at Red Robin, which is where I was for the game, I wanted to treat Sarah and she loves Red Robin. Just 1 of the 5 television sets had the Yankee game. And where this T.V. was I could only see about a quarter of the screen. Which is why I didn’t notice the game even being on, I was following the game on my iPhone, wondering if the inning was over, when I spied a gray uniform and a familiar figure with his foot on first base and his mitt extended, waiting for the throw from second, that was about all I could see of the screen. Red Robin fails, that and they have a huge Robin that goes around the restaurant and high fives people. Let’s just say, at times our drinks were very interesting.

For a while I thought we would get another shut out from Bartolo Colon. Then in the 3rd inning Trumbo hit a home run. Still, Bartolo didn’t fall apart, kept the Angels to 3 runs and picked up his 4th win of the season. David Robertson got another strikeout for his charity, Joba pitched a scoreless inning. Kasey thinks Dave and Joba are spending too much time in the bull pen, they both seem to be in league with the blood pressure medicine people, they are raising our blood pressure with Dave walking two and Joba walking one before getting them out! Larry needs to have a serious heart to heart with them. At least Mo didn’t walk anyone, well he did let a couple hit the ball, but then he got the last batter to hit to Jeter who then threw to Mark for the double play. Inning over, ball game over, Yankees win.

Mark Teixeira hit home runs number 17 and 18 ($30 for his charity, a grand total of $270), as much as I really the Yankees to beat the Red Sox on Tuesday, I am kind of hoping they do it without Mark hitting a home run, just so I have time to catch up. Anyway, Mark brought in 3 runs bringing his RBI total to 41; Swisher hit the other home run bringing his RBI total to 24.

After starting the West Coast trip 0-2, with a series loss to the Mariners, the Yankees end it 6-3 and are still in first place.

If they win this one, they can win the series ~ Saturday, June 4, 2011

~~ Yankees 3, Angels 2 ~~

In the city today, Kasey in Vermont so I was all alone, I was going to tweet to see if any of my followers was watching the game in the city and could I join them, then I checked the game time, 9:00 p.m. There went that idea. Then I got in a mini fight with Kasey (she later blamed it on her husband, I’m cool with that). While in the city I got a Russell Martin shirt for Kasey’s husband and a shirt with “27 reasons not to be Red Sox fan” for Tuesday’s game.

Thinking I should come home I asked Stitch why he told his mom I was mad at them. He said he didn’t and then said “You don’t have to come home.” I was already up at Grand Central so I couldn’t go to the clothing store I had a Groupon for so I just started walking. I found a street fair and walked the whole length of it and back. I bought a hat, a necklace, some magnets, earrings and a watch that didn’t work. Then I stopped at a bar to have a beer, or two. I might go back there sometime if I need to watch the game when I’m in the city.

So I watched the game at home, every so often tweeting game results for Em since she couldn’t get the game on t.v.. I kept it up until I informed me she could follow the game on her iPad, which made me wonder why she needed me to tweet anything.

So CC pitched into the ninth inning, when the Angels got a run Mo came in, pitched once and the batter popped out to Cano. Ballgame over, Yankees win.

No haters or blame casters ~ Friday, June 3, 2011

~~ Angels 3, Yankees 2 ~~

Yes, the Yankees lost and Nova gets the loss but let’s not just blame him. I get so sick of people who have to blame someone. Giradi is to blame for letting him stay in too long, or taking him out to soon, or for consulting his binder when he should have gone with his gut. Or Girardi doesn’t know baseball and shouldn’t be managing a team. I mean he only managed them to one world series!

Or it’s the offense, no one is hitting the ball, or they’re not hitting hard enough, or they’re hitting it in the wrong spot! Or it’s Swisher’s fault, he’s not hitting enough home runs, or doubles or triples. Let’s send him to the minors, or back to Chicago or make him fold towels. And put Dickerson in right field instead of Swisher, put Swisher on the bench he’s useless! I actually read a comment on mlb.com that said, “dump posada.swisher,jones,jeter,and get at least one reliable left hand releiver.” Like none of them are doing anything and Logan is unreliable. I know Logan’s ERA is high, but there is time for him to heat up.

Nova did not pitch great, but as David Cone said, Young pitchers have to get experience pitching in the big leagues. Yankees are not 10 games behind, so now is the time to let him pitch and get his experience. And he is getting better.

The bottom line is, the Yankees lost because they scored 2 runs and the Angels scored 3 and that is the end of the story. Losses happen, like shit happens. You get up, pull up your big girl panties and go on. Tomorrow is another day and another game.
