Good Grief


Et tu, Dellin?

Another tough night for a Yankee starter, and an even rougher one for the Yankees’ closer as the Phillies beat the Yanks again, 11-6. Dellin Betances had given up one run all season. Last night he gave up four.

Alex Rodriguez had a couple of hits, including a solo home run, but with runners on second and third, one man out in the bottom of the sixth, he could not drive a run home. Brian McCann followed and grounded out to end the inning and that was the last real threat posed by the Bombers (Brett Gardner hit another dinger too because that’s, apparently, what Brett Gardner does).

So this is what it is–another losing streak. Today won’t get any easier despite the return of Ivan Nova as Cole Hamels is pitching for the Phils.

We can only hope, true to form, that this losing streak will be followed by a winning streak.

Do we want to win the East or do we want to watch CC play out that overpriced contract and continue to put up an ERA around 6 or 7 until we get buried? DFA this guy and Beltran.

The money has already been wasted, but the roster spot doesn't need to continue to be.

1) I hear your frustration and can appreciate where you are coming from but this is not going to happen.

You're absolutely right. Girardi just again insisted that CC's staying in the rotation and that we will "get him right.' He's delusional, or at least knows what we know.

I'm going to predict there's an "elbow" or "shoulder" "issue" with CC, necessitating a trip to the 15 day DL.
