Everything is Under Control
Thursday, April 09, 2009
Monday and yesterday's games were admittedly a tad disappointing pretty disastrous. The Wangster and CC didn't bring their A-game and the relievers didn't look too keen on picking up their slack; we also didn't see anything spectacular from our pricey new toy over at first base. Nevertheless, I don't think there was any need for the sheer panic I was hearing from fans, much less the glee anti-Yank crusaders were expressing. Case in point, from the comments on Monday's post:
It's Wed. and yet again the yanks are lossing in the 5th 7-1. It's going to be a long year if your a Yankee fan. The best last place team money can buy. They spent 180 million a un-tested first baseman who is now 0 for 6 (hitless and clueless) 161 million on a pitcher who couldn't get one K in his first outing. Time to fire Girardi?????
First, the Yanks were losing, not lossing. Second... IT WAS THE SECOND GAME! I try to judge players on a larger sample size than, say, 5 innings. Third, since when is Tex "un-tested" - I'd say six seasons of experience is a decent "test". Finally, what does Girardi have to do with this? He had nothing to do with the contracts any of these guys received and can't force CC to throw strikes (unless I'm mistaken and he is indeed a puppet master).

Sheesh. Had this stressed-out commenter not posted anonymously, I would have contacted him and/or her directly to issue some soothing words.

Luckily, the Yanks took care of that for me by playing a fabulous game today. In case you missed it, here's the highlights:
  • Final score: 11-2
  • Burnout's line: 5.1 IP, 7 hits, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
  • Coke, Veras, Bruney, and Mo combined for 3.2 scoreless/hitless/walkless innings
  • Homers from Tex, Cano, and Swisher
  • Stolen base for Gardy
  • Molina threw out a potential base-stealer
  • Cano was 3-4 (I told you last year was an anomaly!)
So seriously: simmer down. Everything will be just fine.

    Can SOMEONE please tell Long and Jeter to study the ABs that he has grounded into DPs!! Obviously his ability to swing with the pitch is getting used against him and there has been no adjustment. The runner on first is a good indicator of whats coming; Low and away if they're slow and low and in if they're fast.

    am I alone in thinking they need musina back in a major way if not pitching as the pitching coach!!! this year if girardi doesn't make it FIRE HIM!!!

    and jorgay can not call a game to save his life this year.. it shows he doesn't know how to call one for CC and why wasn't CC's catcher brought along?
