Burnett's final line of 7.2 innings and 5 runs doesn't really tell you how good he pitched. Going into the 8th inning he had allowed just 3 runs, but fatigue seemingly got the better of him in that inning as Toronto scored two more. Damon remains the best hitter on the team.
We just could not hit against Halladay. I mean, its not like that's a surprise or anything. Halladay was stellar. He kept his pitch count low all game, and finished the Yankees off with 9 innings of 1 run ball. The Yankees would have realistically needed to shut down the Blue Jays to win this game, and that wasn't going to happen the way they've been hitting.
Derek Jeter has an oblique strain that put him out of action in yesterdays game. A lineup with Pena, Cash, and Gardner just isn't going to perform well against a guy like Roy Halladay. Oh how we need Posada and Jeter back.
Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children
No homeruns last night as we were facing Roy Halladay. That will hopefully change tonight against the tough righty, Scott Richmond. If it doesn't, then the Yankees will get ugly stares from me all weekend long, and they can't handle it. Especially A-Rod, he averts his gaze each time I ice grill him.
