I only wish I meant the above movie characters.
Sadly, I’m talking about two of the Yankees in tonight’s series opener against the Angels.
AJ may have become a platinum blonde, but it didn’t change anything. He had his usual flashes of brilliance only to have that one bad inning that too often sends him to the showers (with a lack of run support from his teammates, I should add). He seems incapable of hanging onto a lead, however slim.
But the Yankees clawed their way back to tie the game, with Cory Wade and Dave Robertson delivering more great pen work.
And then Mo. The horror.
No, I’m not calling him dumb. Never. He’s going through his usual rough patch. It happens every August, doesn’t it? I just hope he’s not hurt.
The dumb one was Granderson. Yes, I know. He put us on the board with his homer, but with Tex up in the bottom of the ninth he gets picked off? Seriously? Way to kill a rally and lose a ballgame.
Too bad this one didn’t get rained out. Ugh.
