    First time in four starts than we haven't got to Verlander. Can't really complain.

    Yes, but this is why I get furious when they drop two of three at home to inferior teams like Boston and Baltimore.

    The feeling around this team would be completely different had they taken one more game in each of those two series.

    Yeah... He finally realized that if he throws some soft stuff, he can get the Yankee hitters out on their front foot... Then when he needed a strikeout, he dialed it up.
    He pitched great last night.

    Last 2 losses to Verlander and Felix. Can't get too bummed out about that.

    meh, losses to Felix & Verlander don't bother me that much. It happens there is a reason they are aces.

    But going 6-9 in other 15 games in this stretch kind of sucks.

    Would be nice to miss the other team's ace sometimes. Rays and Orioles both played Seattle and missed Hernandez.

    NYY has a few times this year already.
    NYY missed
    Weaver in April
    Strasburg in June
    Sale in June (out of a 4 game series no less)

    So it does happen.

    We also have to understand that there are teams that set their rotations to make sure their ace pitchers, pitch against the Yankees.

    I think that happens a lot less often than people on here believe. To YT's point, the Yankees have missed some tough pitchers

    Are you saying that the Yanks are the only team that teams do that to?

    No - not at all. I think some teams will skip their #5 if it sets up their pitching for a team like the Sox or the Phillies (maybe not this year).
    But let's not fool ourselves. Teams are gunnin' for the Yankees a lot more than they're gunnin' for other teams.

    That's life when you are a playoff contender which fortunatly for the Yanks has been quite often the past 2 decades.

    I don't think that happens very often anymore. Maybe when there's a day off and it's late in the season.

    Lesson learned. No more soccer at Yankee Stadium. Slide started with that disaster.

    Thomson has now directly contributed to two recent losses by holding Ichiro at third.

    Please do! It's clearly your fault.

    I hope they didn't clean the "lucky dirt" out of it!

    Ichiro had just made the turn at third when the ball came to the cutoff man about ten feet behind him. He would have been toast.

    And we had Grandy coming up. It was correct not to send him.

    Ichiro had no chance of scoring-- Here's the play-- wait for the replay:

    The non-send shouldn't be the discussion anyway. There were bigger issues before that.
