Boy was that a long drawn out game. I thought it would never end .It had it's up and downs. AJ still bothers me. One iinning he can be "lights out " and the next he can't find home plate, is hitting batters, throwing wold pitches. That is notcontrol for me . That is inconsistent. For what I saw, it made no difference whether Molina or Posada was behind the plate. Molina was having just as much of a hard time with his pitches in the dirt.What is AJ going to do next year? I doubt Cashman is bringing Molina back when Cervelli is more than ready.
Funny how Abreu had a problem playing the wall for us , yet has no problem trying to jump to grab A Rod's ball. LOL. And cano drove me nuts with his sloppy play . That one ball was clearly easily caught.
Francesa kept saying how much better our pen is than theirs. What pen is he looking at ? From what I saw last night, they matched us pitch for pitch. But, it was nice to see then handle Guerrerro , Abreu and for the most part Hunter and Figgins.
But, the leaviing bases loaded can't be allowed to happen . I know A Rod can't be expected to carry the load. This is why I am wondering when Tex is going to start being more consistent at the bat.
I also wonder how Bruney feels about being left off another post season roster. It that does not speak volumes of what the Yankees really think of Bruney, I don't know what does. Would not be surprised if he is traded in the off season.
And how great was it for Hairston? You have to love seeing a guy like him , who has never been in the playoffs get so excited. Good for him.
Now, we need Andy to step up Monday. I realy don't want to see CC on short rest. If Andy wins , Gaudin will pitch Tuesday , otherwise CC will.
And did anyone get a load of the hat Michael Kay was wearing? LOL
