Game 153: Toronto (85-67) vs New York (76-76)


 

No Stanton, Wells, Pereira, or Peraza!

Apparently Peralta may be headed for IL.

With Cole pitching, Fangraphs has Yankees as 56% favorites to win.

I'm putting "New Closer" on my Christmas wish list.

Clay Holmes, four-run lead. We're doomed.

So glad I stopped watching in the 8th and went out to my back yard for a cigar with GameDay. Holmes is awful to watch, particularly backed up by Torres.

Case in point about bunting (from the earlier thread). IKF grounded out and did nothing with one out, man on second. Bunt him over, and there's a runner on third with one out. Instead, he's stuck on second with one out, moved to third with two outs, and then stranded. Disgusting incompetence.

Well you're making my point for me - it's only because of the top-heaviness of the Yankee lineup and the weakness beyond the first two or three spots that a guy like IKF would be batting as high as 6th. That's not the case with actual contending teams.


The argument that he should have bunted is perfectly defensible. I just happen to disagree since I've seen the Yankees fail to score runners from third with less than two outs time and time again.

I know this is very, very wrong, but I can't help but think of tonight's Blue Jay pitcher as "Frank N. Berrios." It's cereal AND a burlesque show.

Couldn't give Wells a game in RF? I mean, is he at least shagging flies during batting practice? Or are they purposely limiting him to only C, even in practice? I'd rather see Wells make a misplay out there than Bauers.


But then again, I don't think Rortvedt should be catching Cole anymore. Cole has done nothing but basically grind his way through his starts with Rortvedt as his catcher. His IPS (innings per start) is down too.

None of the remaining games actually matter other than for individual accomplishment and development. Cole is trying to win a Cy Young, and more power to him. If he would rather pitch to Rortvedt or Higashioka, I would let him. He's earned that much in this mostly otherwise craptastic season.

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
