"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice



A plump 3-0 lead, Bradon McCarthy pitching well, 2 outs in the 6th inning. Sunday looking like a good day for the Yanks. Then Melky Cabrera hits a bomb, and Jose Bautista hits a shot (he’s homered in his last five games). Edwin Encarnacion joined the party with a solo blast of his own in the 7th, and a base hit off the otherwise stellar Dellin Betances resulted into a close play at the plate and when the smoke cleared the Jays went ahead, where they’d stay to beat the Yanks, 4-3.

Yanks got the tying run on second with one out in the 9th, and then had him 90 feet away with two out for Derek Jeter. But the captain didn’t have a headline in him, just another weak, harmless line out to second.

Couple of painful losses this weekend, Juice. Brutal.

I left the house the moment Melky homered to take a long walk with the wife. When we got got home I flipped on YES to see the final. Glad I missed it. It's almost like it didn't happen. Sigh...

[0] I'm glad I'm not the only one who can not hear the word "juice" without pairing it with "brutal." Or is it the other way around? Or maybe I am the only one...

[2] I can't hear the name Melky without also thinking Juice, if that helps. Though I can't think of anyone besides the BJs who would want Melky Juice...
