Freddy’s Dead (No Shit Henry)

Freddy Garcia almost made it through two whole innings today and gave up six runs in the process. His ship, it be a-sinkin’. The Yanks never recovered. It was a mostly listless day for the home team. They couldn’t do anything against the rookie Drew Smyly who pitched damn well.

The good news? Well, Dave Phelps was solid in three innings of relief, Nick Swisher hit two solo homers (one from either side of the plate), and Curtis Granderson hit a solo shot himself. But even three runs against that pant load Valverde wasn’t enough. Eric Chavez, pinch-hitting, represented the tying run with Raul Ibanez on second, two outs in the ninth. Got under an 0-2 pitch, a flat slider, a pitch to hit. It went as far as the warning track for the third out.


Something will be done about Garcia who is currently putting out the fire with gasoline. In the meantime, chalk this one up to a No Shit Henry loss.

Final Score: Tigers 7, Yanks 5.

Nothing to see here.

Go away. Come back tomorrow. We’ll be here.

"Freddy Garcia made it through two whole innings today..."

He didn't, actually. 1 2/3.

Besides the two HR, Swisher hit a ball to the LF corner shouting "Double double double", but Dirks ran it down, nice catch. So Swish is in the groove, anyway.

Lester retired the White Sox in the first inning without giving up a run, but it took him 32 pitches to do it. Control problems.

1) Wishful thinking on my part. Fixed. Thanks.

Why not take a chance with David Phelps? He's going to be pitching in Garcia starts anyway, and he's pitching better.

5 RIYank   ~  Apr 28, 2012 7:59 pm

Lester really settled down. Around 90 pitches through six, I think. He'll pitch another. If not for that first inning he would have had a good shot at a CG.

Knicks and Yanks took it out of me today....thank God for The Seven Ups on Netflix streaming

6) And Iman Shumpert out for 6-8 months, also with an ACL injury. Really puts a damper on the day. Rose being out really is depressing.

Strasberg is a monster. 95 -99 mph heater and a crazy hook. He just whiffed Matt Kemp on a shoulder high fastball. 98. No chance. 91 mph change up. WTF!

The Iman thing is terrible, it makes you really wonder when the light at the end of the tunnel happens for this team

Bryce Harper's 1st hit was a rocket 3-2 line drive over the CF's head for a double. It short hopped the fence and he flipped the helmet off his head between 1st and 2nd.

Meanwhile, the car chase in The Seven Ups is still better than the one in The French Connection

12 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 28, 2012 10:15 pm

Harper just fired a rocket from left as the runner from second tried to score on a single. A bullet on the money, had the runner dead to rights, and the fucking catcher dropped it on the tag as the runner slid. booooooooooooooooooooooooo

13 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 28, 2012 10:32 pm

Tyler Clippard in for the Nats. He's given them about 250 innings since being traded for Jonathan Albaladejo who threw about 50 for the Yanks. Ugh.

14 Ara Just Fair   ~  Apr 28, 2012 11:23 pm

2 outs. 1st and 3rd for the Dodgers Down 3-2. Wild pitch scores the tying run. 3-3. Man goes to 2nd on wild pitch. Batter then strikes out, pitch goes to backstop, batter makes it to first. Now it's 1st and 3rd with a pitching change. Madness!

I have Good news for you, and Bad news for you.
The good news is, with Freddie shitting the bed,
Phil is now assured to be stay a starting Pitcher.
The bad new is,
Phil is now assured to be stay a starting Pitcher.
