Sadness :'( ~ Thursday, July 21, 2011

~~ Rays 2, Yankees 1 ~~

We are so used to winning with CC, that when it doesn’t happen, I get sad. However Robbie says we need to forget this game and move forward, get ready to tomorrow’s game.

The boys are coming home, back to the stadium that they know to play the A’s, the Mariners and the Orioles. Here’s hoping the Yankees win all three series and the Red Sox lose their next three.

Back in Form ~ Wednesday, July 20, 2011

~~ Yankees 4, Rays 0 ~~

To all the haters and naysayers and band wagon fans, the ones saying it was time to let Freddy go (after one bad start) take a look at the score, take a look at 7 strike-outs and 0 walks. Did you hear me? 0 walks. No doubt about who won this pitchers duel. Logan and
Robertson did their part and Mo, sorry Mo not a save situation.

That reminds me, hey Joe? You already have an 8th inning guy, the perfect set-up man, the bridge to Mo, dare I say, the next great closer (maybe not great yet), maybe Soriano can fold towels.

The pitchers did get a little help from Curtis Granderson and Eduardo Nunez who each had 2 RBI’s.

All in all a good game.

On the other hand ~ Tuesday, July 19, 2011

~~ Rays 3, Yankees 2 ~~

Sometimes a pitcher does everything right …. o.k., maybe not everything, but Bartolo deserved a win! And they couldn’t give it to him. All they gave him was a couple of errors in the 7th inning. With two men on base Granderson lost the ball in the ceiling (who in their right mind would paint the ceiling of a baseball stadium the same color as the ball?) Then Logan didn’t catch a come backer (ball bounces funny on fake grass). Then a sacrifice fly got the 3rd run in and Granderson’s throw was off (the boys are not used to playing baseball indoors). While it may sound like I am making excuses for the team …. (of COURSE I’m making excuses, I’m a fan! There is nothing objective about this blog, check out the title).

It wasn’t really fair of me to say the team gave Bartolo nothing but errors, Robbie did hit a two run home run. Yay for Robbie. It wasn’t enough.

Just in case I didn’t make it clear, I hate the Trop, baseball was meant to be played outdoors, in the elements on real grass and real dirt.
