I turned off the TV with the Yankees-Jays score knotted at 2-2 and Pettitte making way for Joba. I had guests coming for lunch. They were only staying for a couple of hours, so I figured I’d watch the rest of the game after they left – the replay of the game. Wrong. It was still going. We were in the 14th. How exciting, I thought. Wrong again. The second Gaudin gave up that walk I knew we were getting burned.
What a waste of a performance by Pettitte. I mean, how many more 10-strikeout games is he supposed to pitch in his career? And Swisher. Wow. I never thought I’d say this about him but: Great defense! On the other hand, what to make of Tex. I understand a bad week, a bad month, even a bad two months. But he looked so awful, going 0-for-6 with 5 ks, that I almost want to see him benched. Sure, he plays a spectacular first base. But he’s killing the lineup. I beg you, Kevin Long. FIX HIM ALREADY.
