Bart was brilliant….until he wasn’t. I don’t remember seeing such a head-spinning turnabout in a long time. Aside from the homer to Bautista (sigh), he was cruising. And then he took the mound for the sixth and the wheels came off.
I honestly think the intentional walks to Bautista and Rivera upset his rhythm. No excuses, but he’d had such great control up to that point that it seemed odd for him to lose it so suddenly.
But the damage was done, and the Yankees offense had no answer. Not against the Blue Jays’ starter. Not against their relievers either. Just nothing.
The only good thing about tonight’s game was that it didn’t take long. Now I can watch the 9 o’clock airing of the HBO movie “Too Big To Fail” – an apt title for the Yankees, don’t you think?
