Phil is looking better ~ Sunday, July 17, 2011

~~ Yankees 7, Blue Jays 2 ~~

When I saw Phil Hughes ERA (10.57) I almost cried, almost because he was on the D.L. for a reason. It was also an almost because at the time the score was 5-2 (YAY), and now Phil’s ERA is 8.44 and his WHIP is 1.73, which I don’t quite understand, I just know that it should be closer to 1.00, which I am sure is the direction it is going now. Phil’s line was 6 innings pitched, 4 hits, 2 earned runs, 2 walks and 5 K’s. Welcome back Phil.
Cory Wade and David both pitched hitless inning and then Boone came in for the 9th (Boone Logan for closer, don’t panic I’m just kidding), I guess since it wasn’t a save situation and Mo threw almost 30 pitches yesterday Joe decided Boone could handle it, and he did.

Phil also got run support from Swisher, Martin, Granderson, Cano and Pena (yes, Pena). Plenty of run support, surprisingly not from our regular guys. However, I will take it. On to Tampa and more playing on fake grass and dirt. Blech.

CC comes through ~ Saturday, July 16, 2011

~~ Yankees 4, Blue Jays 1 ~~

As expected CC held the Blue Jays to 1 run and got enough run support to win. Big Stoppa stopped the losing streak. I still think the fake grass is affecting them though.

CC pitched 8 innings, once again saving the bull pen and now has 14 wins this season and Mariano picks up his 23rd save.

Jones, Nunez and Jeter all brought in runs, Brett Gardner is up to 24 stolen bases and Nunez now has 12 errors. *heavy sigh* Oh and Cervelli also stole a base. No Cervelli hate here, not allowed.

A better game? ~ Friday, July 15, 2011

~~ Blue Jays 7, Yankees 1 ~~

After all Yankees only lost by 6 runs. Oh give me a break, I know its unacceptable. Kind of like waxing your beard or head. I just saw that on TruTV. Defense was a little better this game, but the offense stank and Garcia was not his usual self. I still maintain the boys need fresh air, real grass and dirt.

Wade came in for the 6th and 7th innings, the Sergio (again! Hopefully Joe is doing this to wear out his arm so he can’t pitch.

CC pitches Saturday. That will stop the bleeding.
