"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Ah, If They Could All Be Like This


Early lead, good fielding–covering up some of the cruddy fielding–more hitting, decent pitching, and some more runs. Oh yeah, and a triple play. Started by Solarte and finished by Scott Sizemore, playing first base for the first time since, well, ever. Even a scary moment, where Carlos Beltran tumbled over the fence in foul ground down the right field line, turned out to be more of a scare than anything serious.

The Yankees Turned A Triple Play

It’s not every day you put a beatin’ on David Price. So, yeah, it was a good night.

Final Score: Yanks 10, Rays 2.  

No surprise here but man has Jacoby Ellsbury ever been good so far. In the field–he seems to take much better routes in center than Brett Gardner, never mind Curtis Granderson–on the bases and at the plate, he’s been terrific so far.

There were a couple of times this year where Girardi has let a relief pitcher throw multiple innings instead of going matchup crazy. Betances last night and Phelps earlier in the year. I admire the way he handles the bullpen in general and I like this development.

I like the start to this season. Even the injuries aren't too bad - Teix and Robertson on the way back soon.

1) Betances's got stuff. Just a matter of control...
