"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice


Freddy Garcia pitched a nice game tonight–made one big mistake to Magglio Ordonez is all–but the Yanks were shut-down by Max Scherzer, who was awfully good, allowing just four hits. Rough night for visitors as the Yanks lost again to the Tigers, this time 4-0.

Bombers turn to A.J. Burnett tomorrow afternoon and we’ll go to sleep praying for a Motor City pit stop from the Score Truck.

Meanwhile, as an aside, I used to have a clean dislike for the Angels. They gave the Yanks a hard time, sent them home twice in October. It was easy to hate them. But now, it’s something different–I curse them because they can’t beat the Red Sox. They’d be losing right now if the game wasn’t delayed by rain. Chumps.

Much like all other sane lifeforms, the driver of the score truck doesn't want to go to Detroit.

I liked how if Arod and Cano had just kept the bat on their shoulders, they would have had bases loaded and nobody out. They're in the shower still looking for the fastball in the soap dish or something.

Then Nick would have still hit into a dp.

Funny how when Alex was ahead 3-1, nobody out, man on first, and it seemed like optimism was in the air...and then...

[1] Funny you should mention that. My sister just went there as part of trip to visit our niece, who just graduated from college. She raved about downtown Detroit. Said it was beautiful...and she's from the OC, where everything is clean and perky. This wasn't Eminem's 8 Mile, mind you, but apparently the downtown had been revitalized.

[3] Any traction on A-Rod being hurt?

6 Jon DeRosa   ~  May 4, 2011 11:17 pm

[3] I'll go ahead and follow the trail of the predetermined outcome into the rabbit hole immediately after a loss, even though I know better.

Arod doesn't swing at ball 4, he walks, Cano saw 5 pitches, were any of them strikes? Bases loaded for Swisher, pitching change, and then we see what happens with Mr 3 days in a row. Probably still a loss, but at least there would at least one chance to tie w/ a granny, maybe 3 chances.

At any rate, no fo-sho DP since that pitcher would have been gone after loading the bases.

You can give the Halos some credit for last night, Alex. Or if you'd rather, you can give it all to Daisuke, whose career as a reliever began and ended last night. Or this morning.

[7] Wow... the Halos actually pull out a nail biter. Anyone notice that Beckett was pulled after 4.1 IP, even though he was pitching lights out? (0 R, 1 H, 3 BB)?

What was ARod's injury? He was only out 4 days. He looks like shit now, and frankly, we can't carry both Jeter and Po (.580 and .660 OPS) without ARod raking. Swisher is actually between those 2 (.645 OPS), but I have faith that's temporary, and we don't have an immediate replacement for him.

Honestly, does anyone believe that Nunez and Montero/Chavez wouldn't give us a better lineup? We can absorb financial loses, but not on-the-field loses.

Out last 6 weeks schedule is not in our favor. Throwing away early games is not a good idea.

At least Posada has a few RBI, but Jeter is killing us. Are the hero worshippers here really willing to lose the Division?

[8] Beckett didn't return because of the long rain delay.

10 OldYanksFan   ~  May 5, 2011 8:43 am

[9] TY. Didn't realize the RD was that early in the game.

11 Alex Belth   ~  May 5, 2011 9:01 am

Yeah, what is the moon blue? How did the Angels manage to win?

12 rbj   ~  May 5, 2011 10:17 am

[4] Parts are. Comerica is, as is the new Ford Field. But they are surrounded by empty buildings. Driving up there, you see skyline that looks like WWII era Europe. Detroit has lost 1/2 of its population since the 1950s. Lots of empty space. And they've been tearing down some of the empty buildings.
