89 Bottles of Beer on the Wall

with 9 comments

Well  we can  scratch  90  wins off the bucket list, with  79 wins and only 10 games remaining the Bombers quest for a Post Season play-in game is quickly diminishing..

With the 2-0 loss to  the Rays, the Wild Card Elimination number is 8, and it’s down  to  1 for the Division…

Toronto is a game up on Detroit, the Yanks are 3 games behind the Tigers, with Seattle, Houston, and Baltimore in front of them..

90  wins was the playoff  goal set by Kenny the Bird Singleton, and with the Bomber offense taking the night off, our hometown heroes took another win off the wall.

“Ten games?” Gardner said. “Well, we need to win 11 out of 10.”

Of course anything can happen and will, but running the table  on Toronto  for 4, Boston for 3 and Baltimore for 3 seems like a long shot…

Last night the offense was shut down by Blake Snell, Chase Whitley, and Colome.. Snell is a top shelf prospect and he looks like a good one once he sheds the baby fat and the puppy stage of growing up..

The Yanks worked  Snell for  88 pitches in 3.2 innings in their previous meeting, last night he got in an out of trouble for 5 innings, 5 hits, 3 BB’s, 6 K’s.. Whitley 2.2 innings , 2 hits 3 K’s, Colome 1 inning 1 hit

Mikey 2 Chins had an issue with Teixeira,

All told, the Yankees went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position against Snell and various relievers. The biggest culprit? Teixeira. He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts with men on base. He’s hitting .197/.289/.343 (71 wRC+) and here he is, still batting in the middle of the order in Game 152. It’s not your fault, Mark. You don’t make the lineup. The Yankees were held to eight singles and three walks, and they scored no more than one run for the AL-leading 32nd time.

Cessa was pretty good he coughed up a 2 run HR in 6 innings, 6 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks 6 K’s 1 Tater

Cessa is turning out to be a decent back of the rotation  pitcher as long as your offense scores at least 5 or 6 runs, so last night they  didn’t quite measure up

Tanaka, has been scratched from his next start so the elbow is barking, might as well  shut him down

We’ll  be out of the office until  Sunday , enjoy the week end

  1. Brett “Forrest Gump” Gardner.
    If you had more than 63 homers in 9 big league seasons, and could get out of the .250’s in batting average for the last 4 years, maybe your team could win a bit more.

  3. Who sucks more ?
    McCant or Headley ?
    So not clutch,, the kids make them look all the more inept.
    Groundouts or double plays with men on base everytime.
    Add Gardiner too.
    Shit eaters all

  6. The post game was a lot more exciting than the game itself. Yanks got shutout for the second consecutive game,12th time this season,2nd most times shut out in the majors behind the Padres. A disgusting,putrid performance. Since their 7 game winning streak,they are 3-9,not the way to make the playoffs. Mitchell gave up 3 runs(1 earned) in 6 innings but was a horror to watch. Then PsychoJoe brought in Parker,aka King Gidrool and it became 7-0 as he was shellacked.There was no “mixing and matching” as per usual,
    the King took a beating. Heller came in the 8th,gave up a 2 run bomb to Donaldson,then hit Bautista and was warned.He had no clue where the ball was going. The Yankee 9th was Milk Carton Inning, as Tyler Austin and Refsnyder actually got at bats and were seen on the field for the first time in recent memory.
    The post game started out the usual way with Brickhouse asking her usual questions,the Psycho seemed calm,giving his usual nonsense answers. The others started questioning his moves,such as not mixing and matching,leaving Parker in (Psycho said he had been doing well) but he lost it with Wally Matthews.
    He did not like being asked why he didn’t bring in Warren(who also has been pretty lousy all season) and he got up and left the press conference in his office!-lol The YES boys at the studio were slightly amused at him leaving his own office!! The Yanks had made a good run,but it seems the wheels are coming off.
    If Sanchez doesn’t do it,it doesn’t get done. The rest of the lineup is pathetic. Mathematically they are still alive,but things are not looking good at all.
