So I forgot to do the game-time open thread for yesterdays game, as I received some exciting personal news and it just slipped my mind. Let’s have this post count be the recap for yesterdays and the open thread for today’s game.
Sabathia kicked some serious butt yesterday giving up just one hit and 3 walks over 8 strong innings. He comes the first Yankees pitcher to turn in back to back 19 win seasons since Chien-Ming Wang did it from 06-07. (Speaking of which, looks like the Yanks made the right call on him).
Posada went deep, and Granderson kicked in a pair of bombs. If there’s any time to get hot its the last month into October. I hope they keep it up.
As for today, the Yanks send out young Ivan Nova in hopes that he can continue where he left of in his last start. The Jays send out Morrow for his last start of the year (they are shutting him down due to innings limitations). Should be a good one, feel free to hang in the comments and talk about the game as it happens.
