Game 43: Yanks (23-19) vs BJs (24-16)


Cordero gets the start as an Opemer.

Hicks is back!!! And in CF!!!!

Bader is off

Bauers leads off

DJ is off

Now, can someone explain to be why with the Yanks -- using a bull pen game -- do they decide to sit two productive hitters?

when I was lately ranting about Yankees losing but showing well, it was not looked upon as other than a bit of mulch.

tonight we witnessed a Toronto team that was throttled for 7 innings

and then was allowed to make a bit of an impression in the 8th.

it was not fully comparable to recent games, but the Jays put a hitch in the Yankees' swagger

This is what happens when you give a team five outs in an inning. The defense is grotesque.

I'm happy, of course, that they are up 6-0, but there were also two innings with a runner on third and one out, and they got neither of them in. That's a recurring problem.

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"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."
