My favorite player(not!) strikes out again. Why is Girardi DHing Jones. He can’t hit lefties or righties and he can’t play the outfield. He’s a liability. He needs to be traded or buried and bring in someone even from the minor league that can play outfield and hit for the rest of the year. If Chavez can’t get it done as DH bring someone in who can. This has been an unfilled need all year on this team and it wasn’t addressed at the trade deadline.

The bottom of the Yankees lineup is doing nothing tonight. Jones, Nunez and Martin are not contributing. And Tex hasn’t got on track either. Run support is always the Yankees nemesis. A starting pitcher gives up 5 runs but the Yankees have the offensive power to get more than 5 runs in a game. They’re not going to win many games if they only get 2 or 3.

Great. We leave another starting pitcher in too long. Colon obviously isn’t dominant tonight and getting near 100 pitches should have been taken out. Now he’s letting the game get away from him.

Like

Martin has left 5 on base tonight. He’s not really getting it done a the plate. Would Cervelli do any better? Not sure but maybe Martin needs a break.

A Colon melt down in the 3rd after being up 2-0. Not good. The Sox lost and we could have gone up 2 games if we won tonight. What’s up with Colon? I’m on Gameday. Losing his location. Not staying with his fast ball with movement? Two home runs and a double in the same inning. He needs to stop the bleeding here and hopefully the Yankees can come back.

Hi Bill,

Still in the low .280’s. Far below what he should be. Those two hit games never developed.
