No such thing as a sure thing in baseball

~~ Red Sox 7, Yankees 4 ~~

With Nova pitching versus Lackey, I was sure we’d win it. Then when the Yankees jumped ahead with 3 runs, I was doubly sure the Yankees would win. Even when they went ahead in the 7th, I was still sure Yanks would win, it was only one run and in the bottom of the 7th the Yankees tied it up. So no problem right? RIGHT?

Seven innings later that bad boy Jacoby hits a 3 run home run off Scott Proctor. I don’t know why he was pitching.

Once again there were bad calls against the Yankees. You would think they would get the edge since it is their stadium. Of course you never know if it affected the outcome of the game. It did affect Swisher’s numbers. What was cute was the last time, Swish was hot so Joe comes running out and Cano wraps his arm around Swish’s shoulder and drags him away. Couldn’t afford to lose a player, then Joe got thrown out.

Even though I really wanted the Yankees to sweep the Sox, (possibly out of the post season) Yankees are still number one. This Saturday will still be me and Kasey’s first trip to the post season. So I’m trying not to put too much energy into being angry about this.

Another corny title

~~ Blue Jays 3, Yankees 0 ~~

This has been a subject in my blog before, I know how hard it is to come up with interesting titles, but these guys are professionals!

Blue Jays take to the air, fly by Yanks in finale

So no sweep for the Yankees, Garcia only lasted 4.2 innings and gave up all three runs. The rest of the pitchers, Laffey, Ayala, Proctor, Valdes, and Kontos kept the Jays to the three, unfortunately the Yankees didn’t score any runs.

Yankees 9, Mariners 3 ~ Monday, September 12, 2011

~~ Yankees 9, mariners 3 ~~

Yay for run support for Phil Hughes. He pitched pretty well, giving up 1 run in 6 innings pitched while Scott Proctor (who I know nothing about except he has a 6.49 ERA) gave up 2 runs in 2 innings. Then Ayala pitched the ninth. No Mo tonight.

Mark and Chris Dickerson hit home runs, which reminds me I need to update my page and send Harlem RBI some more money. Chris Dickerson also stole a base.

It’s déjà vu all over again

~~ Orioles 5, Yankees 4 ~~

Yes they lost to the Orioles, in extra innings by one run, again! In case you have been living under a rock, this was a make up game, due partly to Hurricane Irene and partly to the fact the Buck Showalter is a (insert word not used in this blog here). I don’t have any facts to back it up, but I think he was just trying to stick it to the Yankees. One of my reasons for thinking that is the comments he made in the press. But enough of that. If you read the comments on MLB.com you would think this is all Joe’s fault because he is the WORST MANAGER in the history of baseball. Yeah think on that a minute.

There are two things (maybe three) that save this from being a disaster in my mind, Nova did not take the loss, (some new guy by the name of Scott Proctor {shhhh don’t tell me} took it and Soriano got a blown save {that’s a bonus, it validates my dislike of him}), the score between the Red Sox and Blue Jays was 7-4, Blue Jays (last night their bull pen imploded, no idea what happened today) and since the Orioles have nothing to lose, they are playing aggressively. We’ve seen it before.

Next the Yankees play the Angels, this worries be because they have to travel with no off day. Maybe Swisher will share his Red Bull.
