Split ‘Em Up


The Yankees’ ace Hiroki Kuroda blanked the Rangers for 7 innings and then David Robertson and The Great Mariano Rivera polished them off in the 8th and 9th as the Yanks beat the Rangers 2-0. Good enough for the Yanks to leave town with a split.

Which, all considering, ain’t bad. Ayo, Austin Romine had 3 hits, man.

And you just gotta love that Hiroki, don’tcha?

I hope Kuroda has another Yankee year in his heart.

A 2014 rotation of CC, Hiroki, Pineda, Nova and Phelps? (Assuming Andy is done.) I could live with that.

And Alex to Siberia, Derek to third and get a young shortstop works.

[2] I hope they spend on one more starter and have Nova, Phelps and Pineda competing for 2 spots. I like Garza because he kills lefties. McCann for catcher and all out hunt for an outfielder.

[3] Flip the loser? I'd only buy another starter if A-Rod is banned for the year and thus the team gets under their $ goal.

Hot stove in August!

Night all. Off to Virginny in the morning.

Catching up on some NYC news...'Carlos Danger'?? Well, his real name is 'Wiener' so...I'm guessing Mr. Danger is knocking The A-Rod Dramas off the front pages.

Sori to the Yanks looking like it is gunna happen:

My gut tells me this is it for Hiroki.

I remember when Sori was traded. I was so upset. I loved the guy.

[8] I did too, but remember at the time we were facing the prospect of watching him flail at out of the strike zone breaking balls for the next xyz years in the playoffs.

I'd like to read some possible endgame theories for the A-Rod drama. I have yet to come up with one, and I have been trying. Assuming he plays again for the Yankees, what does the stadium, home or away, sound like when the announcer says his name? How about anytime he would bat? Make an error? Get a hit? Now assume he doesn't play. How do the Yankees keep him off the field and at what cost?

He sounded so stupid talking with his boy Mikey. I mean, he doesn't trust the Yankees. Or believe in Santa Claus. Why dial the phone? Shades of Joe D and the Journal American. Nice to have your own reporter.

[9] Yeah, he was a danger to groundhogs everywhere, swinging at balls in the dirt.

I still loved the guy. Not sure I'm thrilled to be getting him back at this point, though.
