Big Game Tamed

with 6 comments

What  the hell is going on? 8 runs? Were the Band Aid Bombers just laying in the weeds until  there were 40 games left, and now are deciding to  flip  the switch?

With Big Mike 6.1 innings 5 hits, 1 run, 5 K’s  out dueling Big Game 6.2 innings, 10 hits, 6 runs 3 BB, 3 K’s, 2 HR’s and  Seattle losing the Yanks moved to  2.5 games behind the Mariners who lost to  Texas.

Unfortunately Detroit held serve,  the Yanks sit 2 behind them, and Baltimore mugged the Rays to  stay  6 up on the Bombers.

So  2  of the teams ahead of NY remained status quo making this 3 game series in Detroit starting tonight possibly the turning point of the season for the Yanks who I had dead and buried after the first  2 Houston games, but now look  to be playing with  considerable energy

Man if Pineda can  stay  healthy, and the Yanks can get the new McCarthy under contract,  we’re starting to  shape up for 2015, especially if Tanaka doesn’t re-injure the elbow.

Gotta hand it to Ichiro, he looks like a spring chicken out there down the stretch

The Doughboy has got to be the streakiest player in baseball, let’s hope he starts a 6 week dash  to  the finish line

McCarthy, Greene,  and Kuroda are lined up  to  face the Tigers, Porcello, Price, and TBD.. All  3 Bomber hurlers have proven on their best  day  they  can  match  up and if the offense takes this recent energy to the Motor City we may have a team  that has risen from the ashes

the Whole 9

the Happy Recap

Bad Timing having Brett the Face injured

Texy hurt again, maybe this wakes up Hal and Cashman, next season they need a viable back up, might be a good spot for Bubba, give him a 1st base mitt for Xmas

 “It’s a good opportunity during this long stretch [13 games in 13 days] to give it a rest. I wasn’t expecting it, but it’s probably a good time to give it a little rest.’’

Yeah  every team wants to  give a $22.5M player a rest during the final  crunch time drive. Texy just STFU

  2. “Pinyata” throwing the crooked bal on the black. Hope that Duct Tape on his shoulder holds up.
    Bullpen should be rested for Detroit, and that’s a positive.
    Toronto looks cooked, so that’s one less time to be concerned about. Rasputin lives.

  3. Who are these guys? Under achieving offensively all year, now, all of a sudden, they’re turning the light on? That meeting they held, position players only, seems to have paid off. Apparently, some of the new guys spoke up. Playing with much more energy since then, the wins have given them confidence which is palable on the field. Watching Pine Top Pineda pitch is a show unto itself. All the gyrations, facial expressions, cap a little off kilter ( a la CC ) has been fun to watch. Especially the results. The Fat Lady might’ve cleared her throat during the Astro series, but if they continue to play like this, anything can happen!
