A Nice Walk Spoiled

April 6th, 2013 by Jane Heller

I was taking my afternoon walk along the Santa Barbara coastline on this beautiful Saturday and listening to Yankees-Tigers all the way. (Thank you, MLB At-Bat App, for making the games so portable.) Every time the Tigers got a hit, I groaned.

There’s nothing positive to say about the game, unless you count Wells’ homer and the few other hints of offensive production. Mostly, it was a mauling by Detroit. They really do have a great team and it’s not an accident that they went to the WS last year, but what can be done about our pitching?

Hughes wasn’t bad, especially considering that this was his first start off the DL, but the others? Pathetic. I don’t know why, but I was particularly irritated when Joba came in for the ninth and promptly allowed a hit, a walk and a wild pitch. Sure it was cold. But he’s been ice cold so far. Ditto: Boone Logan.

Can CC retire Cabrera, Fielder, etc.? Can our bats wake up against Verlander?

I don’t even want to think about it.

    Hi Jane & Fellow Baseball Fans…

    Nice game by CC. 7 innings with no runs…that’s more like the Big Man. My only disappointment in the game is that damn homerun. I mean, we all know homeruns aren’t good for a team…Nix should have gotten a single because that would have been sooooooooooo much better… right? :o) Anyway…finally a well played game with pitching, defense & offense and seeing Mo in the 9th …PERFECT !!! Hopefully, the Yankees are going in the right direction as they head into Cleveland.

    BTW…nice going by Detroit in honoring Mo. I wish they would have shown the whole thing. I’m hoping it’s on Yesnetwork.com in it’s entirety tomorrow. No one deserves it more because he’s simply the best…better than all the rest.

    Go Yankees 2013 !!!!
