That's A Little Concerning

The Good

Miranda hit his first big league homerun! Also Bruney and Coke looked good combining for 2 innings of scoreless baseball with 3 strikeouts.

The Bad

By and large, the Yankees were handcuffed by David Price who went 7 strong allowing just one run.

The Ugly

CC Sabathia had his 20th win on the line last night, and he pretty much gave it away in the first inning. He lasted a total of 2.2 innings allowing 9 runs, 5 earned. One of the big concerns about Sabathia is whether or not he's a big game pitcher. His post season starts have been very lackluster, yet he himself is a phenomenal pitcher. Pitching so horribly on the eve of his 20th win makes me a little concerned about how he'll do throughout the post season. Hopefully, he'll step right into the ALDS and be lights out.

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

And poor Jerry Hairston Jr..
It seems Carlos Pena's broken fingers have enlightened the Rays pitchers of the fun of hitting opposing hitters.

As a pitcher, live by the sword, and your team-mates die by the sword. We have three of the top ten in baseball in terms of hitting batters. Then we always react with flaming indignation when it comes back on our guys...

Eh, it happens. I'm glad we finally have pitchers that'll hit guys. For several years A-Rod and Jeter would get plunked with shocking frequency, and our pitchers never threw inside. Jeter likes to crowd the plate, but A-Rod was just a prime target.
