    Here’s hoping that CC is Phatastic in Motown tonight…’cause the Yankees are going to need that.

      Is Ray Charles behind the plate tonight? Criminy!

      I don’t think CC makes it to the 7th. Maybe the 6th.

      I had to turn away for awhile that inning was so damn frustrating.

      We can only hope the way he is going right now.

      CC really spit the bit tonight when we needed him most. That was definitely not an ACE performance. And now he will opt out and the Yankees will pay him even more money and give him even more years.

      Regardless, the Yanks tied the game, and got him off the hook. That was a dumb pitch by Soriano. Terrible AB’s by Swisher (9th), Teix (all series) and Martin (9th)

      It wasn’t overwhelming, but there’s not doubt that Verlander had the better of the strike calls. It was only by about 5 pitches, but that’s a huge edge for Verlander. CC was screwed, but only marginally overall, about 2-3 pitches.

      Oh, man; I gotta agree. You absolutely cannot throw a 1st pitch FB for a strike to Young, and if you do, it absolutely cannot be middle, middle out.

      Swisher swinging 2-0 in 9th was dumb. Martin nearly hit it out (would’ve been out at the Stadium). Tex not letting that curve hit him in the hip to start the 7th was awful.

      Just be grateful that the guy behind the plate in this game is not working the plate when Burnett gets his start.

      @ Evan3457:
      I didn’t like the Martin ab, swinging at the 1st pitch after a walk where Valverde may be a little fatigued.

      I imagine AJ’s leash will be very short. We might be in for a very very quick hook.

      Gerry Davis.

      Jeez, could you imagine?

      Then again given some of the pitches he called for Verlander, AJ may have fared better.

      Maybe so, but he got a strike, and he hit it well, all the way to the wall. Swisher’s was worse, leading off the inning.

      Yeah, I think it will be too. Not liking the Burnett-Cabrera matchup

      I wonder if the Yanks have to stones to start Chavez at 3rd, move A-Rod to DH and sit Tex vs. Porcello. Tex is 1-10 against him, with a BB, and stuck in another rut right now.

      Probably not.

      Oddly, enough, Cabrera is 3-14 vs. AJ, with 2 doubles, 1 K. One double was in 2008, when AJ was with the Jays. 1 double was this season, when AJ pitched his only good game vs. the Tigers in recent years.

      I have to disagree. There’s no way CC gives up 4 runs and leaves that early with anywhere close to a decent umpire behind the plate. One PA, I swear CC threw 6 strikes and ended up walking the guy. The ump cost us the game, and maybe the season. I don’t usually complain about umps, but this was just awful.
