Pitching: A.J. Burnett RHP vs. Kevin Slowey RHP


I missed yesterdays game unfortunately, but i can tell it was a good one, back to back walkoff wins... nicee...

Cano is probably just getting a day off, he's played every game this year and he could use a break.

Swisher really needs to start hitting, his strikeout average is significantly higher than his batting average.

...back later with updates from the game...

Update 1:17: This ump is not giving A.J. any close calls... and kevin cash... again... can't frame for shit.

Update 1:37: give Nick Swisher a day off... i could produce more than him at the plate right now.

Update 2:00: huge double play there, the way slowey looks so far, we have to keep the twins from scoring as much as possible.

Update 2:09: it's the story of Mark Teixeira's yankee career.... guy has a huge day... and the next day he can't get a runner in from 3rd with less than 2 outs... pathetic.

Update 2:15: i like how michael kay and paul oneill just gave halladay his 8th win today even though the game is still relatively close and it's only the 5th inning.

Update 2:19: Burnett is using his 2 seamer to lefies more than i've seen him use it all year... it's pretty nasty.

Update 2:33: Slowey just made Melky look like a bum.

Update 2:52: Kevin Cash is terrible. the score is still tied at 0 by the way, going to the top of the 7th now.

Update 3:01: Ok, i think YES's radar gun is off a tad... that curveball was just clocked at 93 MPH.

Update 3:04: again... melky cabrera... throwing so hard and being off by 30 feet does not work.


Update 3:25: it's 2-1 twins over the yankees... but there is a runner on 3rd with one out for melky right here.

Update 3:26: tie game, sac fly by melky.

Update 3:31: i don't trust Albaladejo at all.

Update 3:33: can we please... uhh... dump kevin cash already?

Update 3:49: huge play by teixeira saved the yankees right there, still 2-2 in the bottom of the 8th.

Update 3:52: if mo comes in with the game tied in the 9th, i see someone hitting a homerun off him.

Update 4:15: hey... he didn't give up a homerun!

Update 4:40: Johnny Damon!!!! walkoff homerun!!! yankees winnnn

Cano needs a day off, but Swisher needs a few days off. His strikeouts are alarming.

Swisher could use a few days off actually, move Melky into right, and have Brett the jet in center... just to let him restore.
