"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Thunder Clap


The good news: Gary Shanchez hit two home runs last night—the second one was a real blast and came just as the rain did.

There was a rain delay and when the game resumed came the bad news as a 6-0 Yankee lead was wiped out by a swift, merciless comeback from the Jays who scored 8 in the 8th and won, 12-6.

Growing Pains indeed.

More rain today? We shall see. Yanks and Jays play a matinee.

Never mind the slickers:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Well, I guess we shouldn't be surprised that the bullpen might fail us. It's held up better than I expected post-Miller/Chapman up to this point. Still, I think the offensive improvements that produce a more consistent overall lineup outweigh the costs thus year (in short term thinking). And obviously, long term, these youngsters are going to be a boon for this team. We hope.

Our pitching has been so disappointing this year.

12 rbj   ~  Aug 17, 2016 4:25 pm

Apparently this was a game to miss.

13 thelarmis   ~  Aug 17, 2016 4:52 pm

CC had 12 Ks and only 1 BB. Of course there's the matter of 7 runs...

So now we finally got offense and the pitching turns to shite.
Never fails. [groan]
