I Have An Idea

August 25th, 2012 by Jane Heller

After watching tonight’s Yankees loss to the Indians involving numerous bases loaded opportunities with dismal results, I think a new strategy is in order. The boys need to pretend there’s no one on base. That’s right. They should get up to the plate, ignore the fact that there are teammates standing on first, second and third, and have at it.

Well, why not. These games where they can’t score with RISP are just too frustrating – especially because Kuroda, who struggled early but made adjustments like the pro he is, pitched his heart out – again.

With the Rays losing, the Yanks had a chance to widen their lead, but no. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Nothing else to say except it was pretty cool that Adrian Gonzalez homered in his first at bat as a Dodger. And Beckett? He looked….blue.

    Cleveland had all the luck last night and we didn’t get any of it. How many of our balls were caught on the warning track while one of the few that left the infield for them ended up in the seats? Very frustrating game but at least we didn’t lose any ground to Tampa Bay in the standings. Thank God for small blessings.

    Audrey, I take it you made it home safe and sound. True about the luck – we hit a lot of balls hard but right at people. Still, the bases-loaded-without-scoring thing was crazy making. Thank God for the Rays losing is right.

    Yes, we got in around 2 a.m. Saturday morning and are still recovering from our week of fun.
