• August 14th vs. The Orioles

    Posted by on August 14th, 2007 · Comments (3)

    Even as badly as the Yankees need to win games at this point in the season, it almost still seems fitting to have a lopsided game like this one tonight – on the day of Phil Rizzuto’s passing – as it allowed plenty of air time for the broadcast crew to tell stories about the Scooter.

    Sure, or, should I say “Ha!“(?), it would have been nice to see Clemens pitch this game. Maybe the O’s would have been held to less than a dozen runs with Rocket on the mound? Maybe Clemens only allows two runs in this game? Still, the way the Yankees bats performed tonight, it would not have mattered.

    Just cross your fingers that Hughes has at least six innings in him tomorrow. Anything less than that could fry the pen at a very bad time in the schedule – as the next two weeks are big for the Yankees. Joba and Mo should be good for three tomorrow. It’s up to Hughes to cover the rest.

      Quadruple A night on the mound at the Stadium. The Scooter deserved better than this on the night of his passing.

      I’ll just mark this game down as “getting all the bad stuff out of the way in one game.” No hitting, no pitching no fielding.

      Kinda reminds me of Seaver winning #300 on Phil Rizzuto Day.

      Karstens shouldn’t be in the major leagues and neither should Brower. They showed why in this game. (Hilarious defense of Karstens from Peter Abraham: “He’s not some nobody. He had a 0.93 rehab-start ERA.” Ooooooooh.)
