What looked like a sure win has now become a nail biter. Another bad inning for CC and Girardi leaves him in to fight his way out of it. Well he did, but not until after 2 runs scored. And Nunez has another error. A sure out at third and he bobbles the ball and drops it. He’s not really ready for the bigs yet. With more experience he has potential but a long way to go yet. It will be good to get ARod back. Now the pen has to hold the lead until Mo gets in there in the 9th.

How many #AMN errors can Nunez make in one year? For God sakes young man learn how to field in the offseason!!!!

ANDRUW JONES…oh my god how far did that ball go!!!…3rd deck…sheesh…what a bomb…and he flew out first time up to the 411 foot sign, plus a single…doin a nice job tonight and also cc seems to be settling in….Twins announcers were impressed with Jones shot…watching on MLB extra innings…

What’s gone wrong with CC’s location the last few games. He was a sure win but not lately. Really getting hit around tonight. Fortunately that home run by Morneau was reversed or the score would be worse. His fast ball is up in the zone and everyone is hitting it. Girardi needs to get CC turned around or it could be tough down the stretch. We need CC to dominate like he did the first half of the year if we are going to keep pace with the Sox and ahead of the RAys. Is he going to get on track here tonight? The next inning or two will tell the tale. He might not be in the game long.

I’d rather face cj wilson 2 games than verlander 2 games in the play offs…anything can happen but verlander would be better to face the red sox first…detroit could knock the sox out…btw cc has nothing tonight…everything is up and they are hitting rockets right now…probably going to be a long night….just sayin a wild card birth would not be the worst thing this year for the Yanks…cc has to get that fast ball down…hes not fooling anyone…sal butera hits a bullet…not good.

Hopefully all this pre game hype and presentation to Jim Thome won’t give the Twins further motivation to win this game. The Yankees need to win this series to stay with the Sox. They keep winning and the Rays are on a winning streak as well so no time to be comfortable and slack off. Unfortunately ARod is not playing tonight. it will take a few games to get him back in the groove I would think. It will be interesting to see how the surgery has affected his performance or whether he’ll be better than he was before.

Why wouldn’t Girardi automatically protested last night’s game given the blown call. As it turned out Torre and the umpire have admited it was a bad call and theYankees would have won their case. Not an astute error on Girardi’s part.

why wouldn’t an ump understand the ground rules of a field when he has the responsibility of umpiring. Was there noone he could have called upstairs to make sure he got it right? It could make a difference to winning or losing. Last night Colon’s blown inning was the story so can’t really blame it on a solo HR but it could have frustrated Colon to the point that he wasn’t able to focus for the rest of that inning. I don’t like the idea that Jones is in the lineup again tonight. Personally I think he doesn’t contribute and especially with RISP. he han’t got it done all year with righties or lefties. The Yankees should have traded for someone or brought someone up from the minors. Obviously Posada is only going to get into so many games as DH and Chavez hasn’t done well at the plate lately but I would still take him over Jones. Hopefully CC won’t have an outing tonight like he had last game. That was really bad. In the past the Yankees have played the Twins well but they have Mauer and Morneau in the lineup now so that makes them stronger.
