    Yankees 11 Tribe 2

    A-Rod hit his 20th career grand slam and had 6 RBI to power the Yankees to a 11-2 win (and series win) over the Indians. Robby hit his 11th HR right after Alex and Gardy went 3 for 4.

    Andy continues to amaze going seven strong innings while giving up one run on four hits while issuing no walks. He is 7-1 with a 2.48 ERA. Un-freaking-believable!

    We need to keep the pedal to the metal with the Orioles coming in for three games. No time to get complacent.

    The Top Yankees Moments On Seinfeld 

    NBC

    New York Yankees played a starring role on “Seinfeld” – ESPN New York

    I saw this today and am sharing it although I have to say that leaving out Cosmos’ visit with Paul O’Neil and George schooling Derek and Bernie is a notable omission of the two best moments, the rest are pretty good. I posted them both here in a previous post. A great show and the best sports franchise.

    Yankees 7 Tribe 3

    Great win. There are three story lines in this one. AJ was superb today. He went 8 innings to rest the short bullpen with only giving up one earned run, no walks and 8 strikeouts. He’s now 6-2 with a 3.28 ERA. The throwing error by Jete led to the two unearned runs in the top of the 7th, so what does he do in the bottom of the inning? Starts a 5 run two out rally with a 2 RBI single followed by Tex’s 3 run bomb to deep left. A big play for Tex and the Yanks.

    For the final out of the game, Mo jumped straight up in the air to avoid a broken bat and is able to knock the ball down and make the throw to first. I agree with Joe’s post game comments that he doubted most pitchers make that play.  They either avoid the bat and miss the ball or catch the ball and get hit with the broken bat. A truly unbelievable play. If I find video, I’ll post it. A great win after yesterday’s loss. Let’s go for the series win tomorrow with Andy on the mound.

    For All Those Who Say The Captain Is Overrated…. KISS MY ASS!

    After today’s fiasco, I want to post something positive. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Derek Jeter has more runs (1,602) and hits (2,807) within 15 years of his debut than any other player in Major League history. Repeat…. any other player in Major League history!

    Figlio Di Puttana! 

    For those who don’t speak Italian…. son of a bitch! I am so freaking angry now. I’m going to leave it to our friend Chad Jennings over at LoHud:

    …the Yankees own bullpen blew that lead for a 13-11 loss to the team with the second-worst record in the league. Starter CC Sabathia was dominant early, but he allowed five runs in his last three innings before the bullpen imploded through a seven-run seventh. Joba Chamberlain got only one out and was charged with four runs.

    Maybe it’s me but I hate Joba’s lackadaisical attitude when he pitches. Once he realizes his stuff is not on in any given day, he becomes passive rather than pitching with some confidence. I’m watching the YES post-game as I write this and this graphic says it all:

    Joba Chamberlain

    Last 5 Appearances

    • W-L 0-2
    • ERA 18.00
    • BB/K 3/6
    • OPP AVERAGE .423
    • TODAY 0.1 IP, 4 H, 4 R

    He’s not fooling anyone and he’s starting to become a concern. Damn it!

    The only good news is it appears that Indians starter David Huff is going to be okay. Hang in there David.

    Yankees 8 Tribe 2

    Robby moves into the clean up spot to give Alex a day off and what happens? He goes 3 for 4 with a grand slam and 3 runs scored. The Captain goes 2 for 4 and Swish goes 2 for 4 with a monster home run. Nice to see the offense wake up and Grandy looked good in the field while going 1 for 3 with a double.

    Hughes had a great game with 7 IP 5 H 2 R 1 BB 8 K for a 2.70 ERA and 6-1 record.

    Yankees Lose Series Finale… 

    … but at least they won a series. Still not scoring enough runs and well, Javy reverted to form.  Grandy is back tomorrow and we have an extended home stand against sub-500 teams Cleveland, Baltimore and Seattle before Toronto next weekend. Time to win a bunch.

    Yankees 3 Twinkies 2

    A great win for a few solid reasons. A monster home run by Swish provided the winning margin and Andy goes 8 innings with 8 H 2 R 0 BB and 4 K to lower his ERA to 2.62 and a 6-1 record. Mo pitched the ninth and there were no hiccups or hard hit balls…. 1-2-3 for his second save of the day. I think the extra work is definitely going to help. Big win.

    Yes sir! The Captain scores the only run in the resumption of last night’s suspended game by hitting a home run in the sixth inning. Robertson, Joba and Mo keep it 1-0 for the Yankees win.  Next game starts in a bit.

    Yadda Yadda Yadda…. Yankees Lose The Game & The Series

    CC was stinky. Bullpen was fine. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. Bottom line: the lineup is short and guys have to step up. Got that Tex?

    Three games in Minnesota is no cakewalk.  Hopefully the day off will help everyone clear their heads. Damn it!

      They need to change their attitude…they’re playing like they’re scared to win.
