"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice



That’s all, folks.

Sure Hiroki Kuroda wasn’t great but he toughed it out again. Sure, Joe Girardi didn’t help matters when he brought Joba Chamberlain in a two-run game. And of course it isn’t all Joba’s fault either. He’s just being himself. Tonight that meant walk, base hit, three-run homer. Yet that wasn’t the worst of it because the Yanks only managed one lousy run, on a solo home run of all things. Apart from one inning last night they haven’t done dick in this series. Just got their asses handed to them and went out like lambs.

The final score: Jays 6, Yanks 2.

Pathetic it what it was.

Wow, that was quick, you must have seen this one coming ... or something.

What a dumpster fire of a game ... and series.

We were already down to "at least they went down fighting," but even that's a lie now. Just go play fucking golf already. There's a little more Andy and a little more Mo (if they ever have a lead again) and nothing else left worth watching

What did you all expect? Frankly, they surprised the hell out of me. My disappointment stemmed from the absence of a player to root for other than Mo. I read box scores, looking to see how my hero or heroes have faired (sic). No heroes. Not much going fair. That they don't win can be understood with the staff they have. That they play sloppy and cannot hit cannot. 5 hits. A-Rod is 1 for what and doesn't play the field or run. And Joey G's decision to put Joba in because he has been pitching well defies credulity. All must go, despite MLB mouths saying what a great job he did with the dreck he had.

[4] They're exactly where they should be in the standings. Outside, looking in. I predicted a .500 season, so they played a little better than expected but they were hurt, old and seemed to lack character. Soriano was a nice surprise for the short while he was here but we should be preparing to look at a very different Yankee team in 2014 and beyond. No Mo, No Andy, no Phil and Joba show (thank god), no A-rod unless the arbitrator is out of his mind, no Derek Jeter at shortstop ( I mean, how the heck can you play the most demanding position in baseball with a plate in your ankle, really.). No Granderson or Gardner, possibly. A sophomore catcher. Maybe Cano (but why pay one player so much when the team is going to be struggling to win 80 games for a couple of years and he's not young). JoeyG's decision to put in Joba was the most ridiculous move I've ever seen. I've never heard so many people groan at once. He did as good a job as you could do with so many holes in the lineup and pitching staff. Just hoping to see Mo on last time and then hibernate until next Spring training.

Andy is calling it quits. Maybe they can sign Posada, Oneill, Bernie Baseball, Ferocious Brosius and Tino Martinez to one day contracts for the last game of the season? They would likely play the same or better than the crew they are running out there right now.
