Game 90: Yankees vs. Blue Jays

TORONTO — Well, that answers that.

Joe Girardi got the expected response when he spoke to Bartolo Colon — that he’s perfectly healthy — and didn’t see any signs that the veteran righty was hurt or when he looked at and compared tape frame-by-frame. Girardi said Colon’s stuff was actually pretty good on Thursday night — though he admitted his velocity may have been down a tad — and said the 38-year-old will make his next scheduled start, which is Tuesday against the Rays.

Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista is out of the lineup today, likely won’t play tomorrow and could miss the rest of the series after twisting his ankle sliding into third base in the fourth inning on Thursday night.

Here are your lineups …

YANKEES (53-36)
Derek Jeter, SS
Curtis Granderson, CF
Mark Teixeira, 1B
Robinson Cano, 2B
Nick Swisher, RF
Jorge Posada, DH
Russell Martin, C
Brett Gardner, LF
Eduardo Nunez, 3B

Pitching: RH Freddy Garcia (7-6, 3.13 ERA)

BLUE JAYS (46-47)
Rajai Davis, CF
Eric Thames, DH
Yunel Escobar, SS
Adam Lind, 1B
Aaron Hill, 2B
Travis Snider, LF
Edwin Encarnacion, 3B
Corey Patterson, RF
Jose Molina, C

Pitching: RH Brandon Morrow (5-4, 4.60 ERA)

this team and management needs to go away after tonight’s game and find out what the h— is going on. There’s no energy. There’s not enthusiasm. There’s no production. They’re going through the motions. Every pitcher they face is not that great. We can’t stretch this losing mentality out much longer or we are going to keep dropping in the standings. Some changes need to be made but management has to have the will to make them. Sad display of baseball the last two games. if it wasn’t for CC w could lose every series.

Like

I mean really Itdibo why is this clown on the roster. He failed miserably when they had him before, they got rid of him and then brought him back??? Who is making decisions for this team? This guy STINKS, period. Last place teams have a clown like Meat Tray on their roster not this team. Surely ANY of the Yankee farmhands are better than this guy. And Nova is much better.

Absolutely seek….I joke about it but its an absolute disgrace….Don’t they see what we have the last year and a half…..guy absolutely sucks….At least if a rookie got raked you could say….ok…he got his feet wet, then throw him out there another game until he feels comfortable…but we KNOW what MEAT TRAY is and its not good and it NEVER has been…he stunk with Florida when Girardi had him there….I don’t get it….Absurd

Like

Someone needs to give this team a kick in the -ss. They’ve been molicoddled enough. They’re making big salaries and not producing. Girardi and Cashman, do something to shake this team up. Before we lose the season something needs to be done and soon. It’s becoming a joke but no Yankee fans are laughing. Everyone else is laughing at us especially the Sox fans.

Seek…get loose and get in there…lol

Well this game is OVER. Girardi does Meat Tray have pictures of you with a Baboon naked? My God why the *ELL is this BUM on this roster??? Every time this JOKE comes in it’s game over. *ELL I’m in my late 50’s and I have better stuff then this guy. RELEASE HIM AND GET NOVA BACK ON THIS ROSTER ASAP!!!!!

Like

And now…and now…we have it…8th inning and its SURGICAL MEAT TRAY to the rescue…Its good to see Girardi has him in the spot he wants him…..just in case the Yanks get a rally…Girardi needs to make sure the game is out of reach….2 batters….2 hits and a run after yesterdays…2 inning…4 run performance…he is in a terrific groove right now….raising the batting averages of hitters around the league….THE SURGICAL MEAT TRAY….seriously though, of all the kids we have in the minors who are pitching well, theres not one pitcher we can bring up for mop up work?..even just for a taste..NOT ONE!!!! give me a break….really!!!

Like

Trade deadline coming up. Anyway we could trade Tex and get some good pitching back? He is terrible at the plate right now. Two strikeouts and looked really bad doing it. he’s not seeing the ball at all. When was the last time he hit a home run? This is not Morrow now, this is a relief pitcher and the Yankees can’t hit him either. They’re not all Cy Young candidates. Girardi needs to shake up this lineup. Bringing a couple guys up from the minors might help. They need something to get some life into this team.

Like

You are right robertg. Nunez did NOT help his cause last night. I have a 6 year old granddaughter who could have handled that grounder in the first inning. Ths Colon situation is bothersome, he appears to be favoring that hammy. Trust me I know it takes longer to recover from injury as you grow older.

Like

Folks the last two games are what I’m afraid we are looking out of Colon and Freddie. This rotation has been living on a wing and a prayer this year. Still think Nova belongs on this roster & starting. Sure do NOT like what I’m viewing the last two games.

Like

that’s two games in a row Seeknay they haven’t shown enough offense, although last night the loss can really be attributed to Colon and Nunez at 3rd base. It’s the same old all year. Good pitching and no offense or vice versa. Now it’s poor pitching and poor hitting.

Like

The Yankees did well out of the gate. They had a lot of home games and the starting rotation produced and they got some runs. Now over the long haul, half way through the season the 36, 37, 38 year olds are starting to show their age. The Yankees are going to have to get younger and may have to forfeit a trip to the playoffs for a couple of years until their younger players get some experience. You can’t buy a winner every yea

Like

Well itdibo the Jays are on a 4 game winning streak and it could have been more. If we have trouble handling the Jays how are we going to do against the Rays next serie?

Like

Robert…your right…my bad…I thought they had lost 7 in a row, they’ve won 6 out of last 10 coming into tonight…You watch these 2 games and you would think the teams records where reversed….2 bad games in a row…hopefully cc can right the ship tomorrow….like he has done all year…

Like

Two hits????? is that all this lineup can muster against this guy???? Someone needs to kick some players in their collective @sses. The Yankee offense is a NO show tonight.

Like

TheJays are certainly not looking like ateam 10 games out of first place, nor are the Yankees looking like a team only 1 1/2 games out of first place. The only game we can count on in any series is the one CC pitches. All the others are a crap shoot.

Like

Red Sox rotation right now is a disaster…basically Wakefield and pray for rain…Beckett has a bad leg or something…now would be the time for the Yanks to get on a streak….I hate when we play decent teams that have lost 7 in a row,,,you know they are not that bad…seems to happen a lot…I’d rather a team be on a good streak when we play them…funny how it works that way..

Like

since the All Star break the Yankees don’t have the swagger, the confidence a team only 1 1/2 games out of first place. The Jays are making them look very ordinary.

Like

The Yankees look like a bunch of little leaguers at the plate against Morrow. They look off balance and are swinging at some bad pitches.

Like

Freddy is pitching a petty good game. The Yankees have to start getting the bats going. Morrow is a good pitcher. They need to figure him out and start puting some hits and runs together or this could be a long night. Texiera really doesn’t look comfortable at the plate. Long needs to work with him on his mechanics.
