Kudos to Girardi. As many times as I and others have been critical of his managerial moves, last night Joe made one great move. Taking Colon out in the 5th and going with Logan was a gutsy move. One I am not sure I would have made. All in all the pen did its job and the Yankees won the game. This is one game for Girardi.

Posada can’t catch up to anything over 90 mph. he’s washed up. How long is Girardi going to leave him in as DH tonight. 2 strikeouts. Get Chavez into the game. Yankees have to get to the pen and get a couple of insurance runs here. A 1 run lead on the Sux is nothing. It will be interesting to see how Soriano pitches in the 7th.

Would any of you guys really trust Burnednuts comng out of the pen? I have flashbacks of the White Flag brigade-Britton, Abedayingyang, & Bruney. Burnednuts needs to be sent to Scranton & learn from Igawa.

As soon as Logan gets into trouble Girardi needs to pull him and bring in Wade or Ayala. I assume Soriano isn’t ready to pitch in a tight game yet? Anyway, keep Logan on a short leash.

robbie didn’t get it done but Swish comes through. Good for him. let’s go Yankees. Bull pen has to shut the Sux down and we need a few more insurance runs for Robertson and Mo.

R. G. Kramer,
My lunch is @ 12 noon PST. I.T. went crazy & put a block on almost everything. I’m able to access MLB.com, obviously this site, & Google. Most likely, your site will be on the list.

Bases loaded and no outs and Cano hits into a DP? Come on. He’s done that too much lately. You got to get the guys on base home if you hope to win a game. It’s called taking advantage of your opportunities. He let the Sux and Lester off the hook. Should get more than 1 run out of this. This could be the turning point in the game right here. Cano hung in but ended up losing the battle.

I guess this is a throw away game bringing in Logan? Not Colon’s greatest game but again a pitcher needs a few runs if he’s going to be successful. Yankee offense tonight is a non factor. Scored too many runs against the White Sox. Is this what the series is going to look like? We can only hope that at least CC will get us a game. Logan got his man out and a dangerous one with bases loaded so got to give him credit. It’s probably the last one he’ll pitch too.

Jones has got to be the worst. Is he asleep on the bases? What’s he thinking getting picked off when he knew the ball would be caught. Jones needs to be traded if you can get a team to take him off our hands. And Jorge is doing nothing tonight. I don’t think Girardi’s hunch regarding Jorge is paying off. Time to bring Chavez in. Lester is good but the Yankees are making him look untouchable. The only thing is that his pitch count is up and if we can get him out of the game in the 6th maybe the hitters can get to the bull pen. But this game doesn’t have a good feeling for me.

I’ve got NESN as well and will have to listen to biased Sux commentators all game. Pain. Now the Sux have gone up 1-0. This series is not going to be a walk in the park like the White Sox series. it’s going to need great starting pitching and timely hitting. Getting RISP home is the key for the Yankees. They’ve already left a few runners on base. They need to strike early and keep the pedal down. Posada sure doesn’t look very comfortable at the plate. I’d rather go with Chavez as DH. And if Posada doesn’t do any better that could happen and if Jones doesn’t do anything at the plate we’ll probably see Gardner.
