Yankees Lose 3 Straight and Played Badly….AGAIN
Am I being too hard on the Yankees? I mean, they only lost 3 in a row. To answer my own question, I’m not being too hard on them. It’s the way they lost. Game 1, ok bad luck, but they still didn’t hit the ball. Game 2 was very upseting. No pitching. And yesterday, with the hottest pitcher on the hill, we lost in an embarrassing blowout. Since when do the White Sox actually hit? Since when do the Bronx Bombers fail to bomb? Obviously, since Thursday. It’s starting to make me angry. I shouldn’t have to throw my shoes at the TV 3 days in a row. Anyway, the Yankees lost 14-4. I don’t even want to recall the game, but for the sake of the blog I have to.
Pitching Analysis: A.J. was way off yesterday. He gave up 6 runs in the 2nd inning. Who does that? Just get someone out! I know A.J. can’t be good every time out there, but he shouldn’t be blown out! I can’t even talk about it. He gave up 7 runs on 10 hits and 2 bases loaded walks to the #9 hitter in 4 & 2/3 innings. There is no excuse for that. His command was all off, and he and Posada just were not in sync.
The bullpen stank as well. Bruney gave up a run on 3 hits in 1 & 2/3 innings. Robertson pitched 2/3 an inning of, omg scorless baseball? What a novel idea! Phil Coke was terrible yesterday. Injust 1/3 of an inning, he gave up 6 runs on 3 walks and 4 hits. Disgusting. But Mark Melancon pitched a scorless 2/3 of an inning. Maybe we’ll be seeing him late in the games soon. Overall, dreadful, disgusting, upseting pitching. Enough said.
Defensive Analysis: While Bruney was pitching, Jeter made an error on a routine play, and that sent Tim McCarver and the other idiots on Fox into a state of joy. SHUT THE F*** UP! Leave Jeter alone. He made an error! WOW! IT’S SO FUNNY! I hate when they are on Fox. All the commentators do is pick on the Yankees and mention the times they stank. Wait, this is the defense paragraph. The defense was nothing to speak about, it was hard to tell since they were chasing after balls most of the time anyway.
Offensive Analysis: There wasn’t any. That’s all.
Ok sorry. I’m just so aggrivated. On the bright side, Jerry Hairston had a nice Yankee debut, going 1 for 3 with a walk, RBI and a run. Jeter and Tex both got 2 hits, one of Tex’s was a 2-run single. Arod had 3 hits. I don’t get why Girardi played Ransom yesterday. He was ridiculously bad. He struck out 3 times in 4 at-bats. I couldn’t watch. In total they only got 8 hits. They were horrible with runners in scoring position. With bases loaded and no one out in the 6th, they only managed 1 run. That is not acceptible. Overall, the offense was disgusting.
That’s how we all feel, Joe.
Another huniliating loss for the Yankees. Before is seemed like all they were doing was winning, now all they are doing is losing. “L” is the new “W.” This has to stop. The lead is now only .5 of a game, and before today is over there probably won’t be a lead. They have to win now. That’s enough already. If I have to throw my shoe at the screen today, it will be thrown so hard that it’ll break the TV, go through the wall, and snap all the trees outside in half. I’m not kidding. (I may be exaggerating a bit, though.) Come on Yankees, win! The fate of my living room depends on it!
