"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Not This Time

The A’s played another sloppy game in the field today but Hiroki Kuroda had a bad outing and while the Yankee bullpen picked him up, the bats did not. Boy, Kuroda was disappointing but a familiar theme did the Yanks in as they just couldn’t get hits with men on base. In the ninth, Alex Rodriguez missed a game-tying home run by two feet and Robinson Cano fouled off a hanging slider that had second deck written all over it.

In the end, the A’s survived and won 5-4. A blown opportunity for the Yanks (and an enormous win for the A’s) as the Orioles finally lost in Boston, 2-1. But in a way, the outcome was fitting with the way things have gone with the Orioles. It’d be unfair if either team took more than a one game lead.

This thing is going to try our nerves until the final days of the season.

Eh, forget about it, folks. It’s still a beautiful day. Go out, stretch those legs, have something good to eat. This was a good weekend, as aggravating as today’s game was.

Come back in the morning. We’ll be here.

Spent the day battling a Yellowjackets nest. At least the Boids lost.

I've been saying this for two years, but Christ, its time to pull the plug on the Eduardo Nunez Experiment.

The umpiring was horseshit today as well. Fuck it, Dude. Time to go to Minnie and take start a new winning streak.
