9/15 – Yankees vs. Blue Jays

Not much in the way of pregame notes today – Brett Gardner gets rewarded for his daring stolen base last night with a start as Melky Cabrera gets a day off – except for this: Andy Pettitte will not start tomorrow vs. the Blue Jays, getting a full turn through the rotation to rest his aching left shoulder.

The Yankees don’t seem to think Pettitte’s situation is all that serious, and it’s not nearly as bad as it was last season when he sucked it up and logged a win in the final game across the street. But they have the luxury to let him rest until Monday in Anaheim, so they shall. Chad Gaudin gets the ball tomorrow instead.

Speaking of Gardner, here’s a fun fact from the Yankees game notes: Gardner has stolen 21 bases in 26 attempts this season…over the last 50 years (since 1960), only three other Yankees rookies have stolen at least 21 bases in a season – Alfonso Soriano (43SB in 2001), Willie Randolph (37SB in 1976) and Jerry Kennedy (25SB in 1969)…Gardner has been successful in 34 of his first 40 career attempts (85.0%).

And will the Yankees be more successful tonight against Roy Halladay than they were at the Rogers Centre, when Halladay threw a one-hitter that might have been the best pitching performance we’ve seen all year. We shall see…

I think a bigger fish would be why in the devil the Yankees are piecing together pitchers/outings?? Mitre? Edwar? PUHLEEZE. I mean, really. If Joba can’t pitch, he can’t pitch. Put him back in the pen where he did so well last year. He isn’t starter material yet. And why is Edwar back? He has one decent pitch, but everyone can figure it out. Melancon? What is this remedial pitching? Sheese, spend some money and GET someone. While we are at it, what the heck is messing up A.J.? No way are the Yankees going to do much in the post season with this mediocre pitching. CC is fine, Andy works his heart out but now what’s wrong with him. Wake up Steinbrenners. SPEND.
Capice?

And old 2 outs and you’re out Cano needs a talking to. Sure he does good stuff, but in critical moments he bangs into a double play – nearly everytime. GET THE RUNNERS HOME??????

ESPN and the Red Sox lovin media will make Posada out to be the total bad guy here, even though Carlson’s actions provoked him.

How many times has Jeter been hit on the hands with pitches?? How ‘unsportsmanlike” has that been???

The Red Sox are only 5 back in the loss column. I don’t think the Yanks should be taking anything for granted here.

Mitre is a loser who doesn’t belong on this team!

Like this

Mitre was awful, no doubt. But what do we call an offense that outhits the opposing team but loses 10-4? I mean, 4 runs on 15 hits? Are you kidding me? Mitre is not the only guilty party.

As for the brawl, Posada is getting most of the blame out there. But, throwing a deliberate pitch like Carlson did, after a non-deliberate plunking by the opposing pitcher, was the crux of the escalation! Also, what was Carlson doing in the path of Posada’s retreat to the dugout–after scoring–and not behind home plate which is what he is taught to do and where he was supposed to be? Was that an attempt to show Posada up? Why else would he be there? Trying to stir things up or absent-minded idiocy? Either way, Carlson exercised even worse judgment than Posada, since the former’s actions CLEARLY enabled the situation to happen and later escalate.

I don’t believe in brawls but it’s good to see this ain’t Joe Torre’s taking-the-plunking-lying-down Yankees, either. (Remember “Plunking” Pedro?)

The Red Sox will only be 5 back in the loss column after tonight. Joe must be playing for the wild card birth, pitching Mitre the way he does……with Burnett giving up big innings and Andy hurt, we could see a sweep by the Tigeres or Angels in the 1st round.
