How annoying. The Yankees had a chance to gain ground on the idle O’s and instead they rolled over and went to sleep.
Not that Brandon Morrow isn’t a tough pitcher; he stymied our bats tonight. But no runs? Seriously?
And how about that outing from Nova? Stinko. I’m beginning to think his inconsistency is the norm, not the exception, and that he’s deservingly losing favor within the organization. It’s a shame, because he had such a promising rookie season, but we need starters we can count on going into the postseason. Does anybody feel comfortable with him in the rotation against, say, the Tigers?
Not much else to say. Lowe? Aardsma? Not worth the ink.
Oh, Canada. I’m actually feeling kindly toward that country at the moment since I’m doing an interview tomorrow for my new book with Maclean’s Magazine, their equivalent of Time or Newsweek. I like the city of Toronto too, but I’d be very happy if we beat the last place Blue Jays over the next three days.
