Yankees Drop Series to Marlins

The Good

The good, the good. I guess scoring five runs was good, as was Aceves in relief. Besides that, not much to report.

The Bad

Derekson Cano, with the tying run at third, swung at the first pitch he saw in the top of the ninth and two outs, promptly grounding out to the shortstop. What a patient team we have at the plate. Additionally, Melky botched a throw to home which led to an additional run in the seventh, the ultimate difference in the game. The entire team let down their fathers today. Good going guys.

The Ugly

CC Sabathia left the game in the second because of tightness in his bicep. What's interesting about that diagnosis is that it isn't a diagnosis, it's barely a description of symptoms. Hopefully, this doesn't lead to Dr. Andrews or surgery. Sabathia has spared our bullpen many a times, but it seems that the eight innings plus a side session he throws every five days has caught up to young Mr. Sabathia.

Home Runs Are for the Children

No home runs today, at least not by the Yankees. Ask Brett Tomko if the Marlins hit any, then call him a piece of $#!%.

Jorge Posada 9hr = $9.00
Hideki Matsui 10hr = $10.00
Derek Jeter 9hr = $9.00
Mark Teixeira 20hr = $20.00
Nick Swisher 12hr = $12.00
Robinson Cano 12hr = $12.00
Johnny Damon 14hr = $14.00
Melky Cabrera 7hr = $7.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 9hr = $9.00
Brett Gardner 2hr = $2.00
Total = $105.00

I believe it was Jeter that ended the game, not Cano. Might want to check that.

It was a joke, anon. They were saying Capn Jetes went up to bat with the swinging mentality of Cano.

You got it Trig. On another note, I'm kind of looking forward to Wang pitching tonight. I want to see if he can make some strides in this start.

I'm really rooting for Wang in this next outing. Of course, for the Yankees as a whole, but for Wang because I know he can do well and I don't like the way they handled his whole rehab/recovery/starter/bullpen/ride-the-pine/starter thingy. As well as his arbitration a while back. Go WANG!!!

We need Wang to turn it around quick. Especially if CC's bicep turns out to be something worse.
