• July 9th @ The Twins

    Posted by on July 9th, 2009 · Comments (6)

    This was the first time ever that the Yankees won a game, in Minnesota, where they used six pitchers (or more) in a nine inning game. How’s that for history?

    Thank goodness for the Twins. The Yankees record against them offsets how the Yankees have played the Red Sox, so far, this season.

    Really, the Yankees are 51-34 now on the season – which is a .600 winning percentage. But, the Yanks are also 0-8 against the Red Sox and now 7-0 against the Twins.

    Take out those games against the Twins and Red Sox and the Yankees record is 44-26 – which is a .629 winning percentage.

    Man, if the Yankees had only split those eight games with the Red Sox…then they would have the best record in baseball…one game better than the Dodgers…managed by some guy named Torre…

      this win i count as luck. Now onto the angels, to do some work to ensure the wild card.

      If they had spilt the 8 game with the Sox, they’d be up by 7 1/2 at the moment.

      If they’d only held the Jason Bay 9th inning HR game, and the A-Rod late 2-run double to take the lead game, they’d be 2-6 vs. the Sox, and 3 1/2 games up right now.

      Oh, well. It is what it is.

      What ifs…. this is the first season i have not played that game…. i actually can believe that the RedSox have beaten us 8 in a row this year and 9 overall.. I Hope it lights up a fire, things are too cordial between the camps… our boys need to feel a little insulted to wash all the post-04 pain…

      i still remember how i was merrily singing… who’s ur daddy… and 1918… true story.. i broke my reading glasses when that Tony Clark hit was a ground rule double… i still think what if on that one… or what if John Olreud hadnt got hurt… i had a wierd feeling that when he pulled up in game 3 and Matsui didnt retaliate to the cheese from Pedro (game 6 ?) that we had gone mellow… a part of me has never recovered.. i still cant believe it…

      On a side note… how did that Santana trade work for the Twins..

      they wanted

      Crisp/Ellsbury, Buchholz/Lester, marginal prospect from Sox

      Hughes/Chamberlain, Kennedy, Cabrera from Yanks

      but they took…

      Carlos Gomez, Phil Humber, Kevin Mulvey and Deolis Guerra…. i cant believee that trade.. i have no idea where Humber is and havent heard of the last 2 guys… Gomez is hitting 200s… Minaya just fleeced them…
