All I have to say after that slow and painful massacre is maybe the Yanks should’ve ditched these love seats:
… and spent their money on a bullpen that just might not let this happen:
Though 8 of those runs were charged to Jeckyll/Hyde Burnett today.. a 6 run lead turned into a 5 run loss? Seriously? I swear the bases were loaded more times than hours played these last two games… Disgusting.
– I honestly don’t even care about winning the game tomorrow.. I want each and every player wearing a Red Sox jersey plunked… twice.
– Jim Wolf and Brian O’nora both should pay the eye doctor a visit. Burnett was squeezed and [to quote a tweet by Rebecca of This Purist Bleeds Pinstripes] “If TIM F***ING MCCARVER says [Ellsbury] was out, he was f***ing out.”
On Deck: Hopefully the real stopper will be standing up. Andy Pettitte facing Justin Masterson in a “Can we salvage some
pride [assuming we have any left]?” game tomorrow night. I’m thinking
it’ll be another disaster, unless Old Reliable can go the full 9.. or 8
at the very least [though Boston seems to have a spell over Mo]..
P.S. If Joe T. were still managing and George Steinbrenner were still in charge, Joe G. would of got a verbal smack in the face by now. I hate to be hard on him, but c’mon.. a couple bad moves too many.
P.P.S. According to Abraham, “Bruney has what they are calling a strained flexor mass. His ligaments
are fine, it’s a muscle injury. He will not throw for a week and
they’re hoping that takes care of it.” Some good news.. but we’re still screwed till he gets back..
