Will the Yankee offense show up tonight against the Rays' best pitcher?
One never knows...
Miggy Cairo won today's Seattle game over Texas in the 12th with a gritty, clutch, scrappy, character-veteran single. The sort that separates men from boys, turns a season around, restarts the ol' cliché machine...
More to the point, perhaps, Jay 'Make Them Pay' Payton hit a grand slam with two outs in the 7th to take Baltimore past Boston. That does count as major.
let's hope the yankee offense is hiding in that caddy
i see the offense is still stuck on offal
Of course, they've both mostly looked like crap.....
betemit is still an unknown, partly because of his streakiness and partly because of his "injuries" (hammy, yes ... "pink eye", no) but i'd still rather have his possibility than proctor's reality
Japanese announcers are great with understatement: "Yankees offense is not at full production so far this season..."
OK, now I KNOW its buggy - it says Cano is 3 for 3 and is hitting .200. Maybe I should switch to IE?
But, with that hit, Robbie is now hitting .200.
Six weeks under .200 is a long time.
I would have put Giambi 8th and bumped everyone else one space, but hey, 2 runs is 2 runs!
11 of those 16 way out called strikes were against the Yanks.
And here comes Ohlendorf.
He comes on and gets his two ground balls to close the inning and instead gives up a run.
The 2nd pitch to Crawford was also outside. Joba is getting some calls Moose did not.
Hey, I just remembered - I'm going to be in your neck of the woods on Memorial Day, for the PawSox-SWB Yanks game. My kids' first ball game. I expect they'll last an hour and a half, maybe two.
Oh, cool 104 . You'll like McCoy, it's really nice for AAA, and still homey, of course.
Robbie's up to .205!
It took him the next 6 games to get the next 4.
7 games to get the next 4.
And 10 games to get the next 4.
He had 16 hits in 29 April games. Thanks to tonight, he now has 14 in 11 May games.
Well, not in this game, it seems.
It's annoying that we couldn't make up a few games on the Sox during their losing streak, but I'm feeling a little better about the season.
Before tonight's win, Moose was was on pace for, you guessed right, 19 wins.
Man, 4.00-4.50 era from Moose this year would be sweet.
The best news from the game was the performance of the Moose and the 4-4 from Cano. Unfortunately, facing Kaz and Santana is not the best way for lefty Cano to build on today, but then again, if Cano is locked in, maybe it wont matter.
The oddest pitch selection of the game was Joba's 3-2 curve to Iwamura.
Here are the two big events coming up: Kennedy's start on Thursday and Arod's return on Friday. If those two go well, I'll step off the ledge.
Moose was gorgeous and as someone said, his wins are hard-earned this year. He's been stellar, hat-tip time.
Ohlie was unlucky, agreed, then lucky on the DP.
I was VERY unhappy with Leche ... you cannot, repeat cannot strike out looking with the runner going. In da old days that'd get you fined by a manager!
I like william's idea (see, right and wrong, dude!) of Jeter leading off - do it tomorrow, against a lefty. I admit I'm gloomy about that game, their ace (another ace!) against our maybe-comeback-kid.
Tonight's lineup, using season-to-date stats (including tonights), should score 4.332 runs/game.
The best lineup configuration of tonight's personnel is:
which scores 4.462 runs/game.
Sub in A-Rod for Ensberg (using his pre-injury stats), and the optimal lineup is Matsui
good for 4.838 runs/game.
The typical Yanks' lineup with A-Rod in it scores 4.629.
