I really wanted to win this one tonight. I hated that Colon didn’t have it and allowed the Rangers to jump out to an early lead. I figured we were cooked, but tying it at 5-5 was fun for about a minute. Ultimately, the Yankees stalled, sputtered and conked out.
I’ll single out Jeter for driving the ball. We’ve all been waiting for that to happen.
I’ll tip my cap to Swisher, who did it with his glove and his bat despite having a head cold.
I’ll give a shout out to Joba, who pitched a crisp, clean inning.
I’ll bow down to Cano for that bases-clearing triple.
But otherwise? Eh. Just eh.
Do me a favor, Yankees, and stop letting Michael Young, in particular, keep beating you. Thanks.
Oh, and congrats to Justin Verlander for his second no-no. He just made me covet him for the Yanks even more than I’ve been doing forever.
