Andy Pettitte (12-6) vs. Brett Cecil (6-3)


   Well, I guess we’re not the “perfect team” after all… A day after making Ricky Ramiro look like a AA call-up – the Yankes got a taste of their own medicine from one of the AL’s finest. Roy Halladay held New York to one single hit through 9, and gave the Yanks their first loss in 7 consecutive victories…

   I can’t lie, Halladay did his thing. If he can hold the best team in the league to one hit, then the man deserves his praise. The unfortunate thing for New York fans however, is the lack of things to be proud of in this one… It was a miserable sight to see.

   1. Thanks to the “10 Joba Commandments,” Chamberlain was pulled in the 3rd to give Mark Melancon a shot on the mound. Let’s be honest though – the 3 runs Joba allowed probably would of gotten him pulled anyway… We’ll just say he needed to take a seat.

   2. Melancon allowed an additional run, and was plucked after a 2 inning stint to give Jonathon Albaladejo a shot. The name drops here are bringing back some memories, right? Faces we haven’t seen in quite awhile…


   You read correctly! After a long ‘vacation’ from the majors, Edwar Ramirez resurfaced for the Yankees toward the end of yesterday’s game to prove he’s still alive. (*Kidding*) I can’t lie, I missed Edwar on the mound. I never really thought he deserved to be thrown in the minors for that long, but we’ve been winning so I have no reason to complain. I’m just glad to see him getting another shot… Goggles or no goggles!

    J.Quist: I quit watching this game after 6 innings. It was beginning to make me sick. I didn’t see Edwar pitch, but I am glad he did well. I like him. He is proof that skinny people can be athletes. I was wondering what happened to him. He was not THAT bad to be sent down for that long. I’m glad he is back. The Yankees didn’t play well, but the Sox lost too, so it is ok. -Virginia

    So you’re a fan of Edwar? He looked skinnier than ever. We were joking on Twitter that he must have dropped another 10 pounds in the minors. I think he has a great change-up, but I don’t want him on the postseason roster. One pitch isn’t good enough to get guys out on this level. Let’s beat the Jays today!

    With call-ups having just occurred and Aceves not able to pitch, Girardi had to use some familiar, if not slightly forgotten faces. It was good to see Edwar pitch well, hopefully that means he can be useful for us in the future.

    I just tell myself that while the Yankees got shut down, they got shut down by a good pitcher. Actually, a great pitcher. He had a few off starts before last night, but that’s the Roy Halladay that teams will be fighting for this off-season. As long as we don’t have an extended losing streak, losing a game here or there isn’t too much of a problem.

    J.Quist: Game 3 was a good one. We won! And we now have a….what’s that? An 8.5 game lead? Holy cow! That is amazing. But it is true. Oh, yeah, baby….this is the life….and…mu..mum..mu.mu Mitre pitches today…that’s healthy for my eyes…..I’m lovin’ this season. -Virginia
