– *WHAT’S GOING ON TOMARROW?*
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…
– *THE RETURN OF EDWAR!*
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!
