Yankees to much for helpless Nationals

June 17, 2009

reveracelebrate Even after CC Sabathia gave up the lead via the three run homer you never got the feeling that the Yankees were going to lose this one. CC has gone 7 or more innings in his last 8 starts and tonight was no different.Sabathia went 7.2 innings giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and struck out 2. After which Brian Bruney and Mariano Rivera closed it out. Just like they rehearsed. Robinson Cano had a great night going 4 for 4 with 2 RBI’s.  Mark Teixeria also had a big night with the go ahead double that scored Damon all  the way from first. The Yankees did not commit an error for only the third time in the last 13 games. The Yankees got some great defense from ARod at third and a snow cone diving catch from Melky Cabrera that deserves to be on tonight’s web gems. The Yankees 5-3 victory over the Nationals marks their tenth straight road loss.

For the Nationals Shairon Martis pitched six effective innings. Giving up one run on four hits. Where the nationals screwed up was giving the game to the bull pen. The worst bull pen in all of baseball by the way. With a record of  5-22 and an ERA over 5 one would think they would just leave their starter out there. What do they really have to lose? With only 16 wins to their credit and being 20 games out of first place the Nationals should definitely be sellers as we approach the trade deadline. Hopefully they can get some pitching in return for Nick Johnson or Adam Dunn.

Derek Jeter came out of the game tonight  with a sore Ankle/foot  which he thinks he may have done on Sunday when Gary Sheffield broke up a double play. He is listed as Day to Day and is questionable for tomorrows game. But you know Jeter he will probably be in there.

Tomorrow  the Yanks and Nats will be at it again as Chien Ming Wang gets the start with a lot on the line. If he doesn’t show well he will probably end up back in the Bull Pen in favor of Phil Hughes who no longer looks overmatched by anyone. He has that look in his eyes that he can get anyone out when previously he looked like a scared puppy with only glimpses of his current swagger.

farnsworth1Kyle I have some advice for you. If you are being paid a boat load of cash that you don’t really deserve don’t put your hand between two fighting bull dogs. I’m just sayin

Reports: Marlins’ Ramirez calls for retaliation

Reports: Marlins’ Ramirez calls for retaliation

Nationals Marlins BaseballNews flash Mr Ramirez. now that you have made public your need for retaliation  you can never have it. If the Marlins were to place any retaliation against the Blue Jays  for him being hit by the pitch it would be a huge ordeal Fines and suspensions would have to be handed out. If he had kept his mouth shut and they had just had their payback on the down low at the appropriate time. Both pitchers would probably just get warned and the game would continue. Think next time Hanley, revenge is a dish best served without warning.

Manny may miss all star game

June 16, 2009

MANNYCry me a river will ya. The All Star game has truly become a popularity contest in my mind. Manny has only played 27 games before he was suspended for 50 games for cheating. WOW , yea he should be an all-star. Hey if he gets on the all star team can we have Pete Rose throw out the first pitch? Maybe Barry Bond will sing the Anthem?

Manny Cheated and even If he hadn’t cheated how can you call someone an all-star that has only played 27 games. Get real all you people who voted for Manny to be in the all star game in the first place. All you that did win this weeks JUST SHUT UP award.
