Poor Kuroda

When a guy pitches as well as he pitched today, against a hot-hitting team, no less, he should win the game. Unfortunately, Mo – sad to say – had nothing. You could tell from that long, almost-homer-foul ball by Markakis. And then came the at bat to Jones; the pitch was down the middle. No cut, no nothing, pure batting practice. The only question was whether the Yankees would be able to score in the bottom of the ninth and they couldn’t. Game lost for the Yanks and Kuroda, who was coming off his hip thing and deserved better. Bummer.

    I was worried about Mariano as soon as he walked out there, Jane. He has been pitching a lot lately because our boys don’t seem to be able to get more than one or two runs over what they’ve given up. I really prefer when he comes in with a 2 run lead, but that doesn’t happen very often this season. They had a pretty good run these last two series but they’re just in front of Toronto in the AL East standings. Hopefully the bats will wake up — and maybe Boston’s and Baltimore’s will go to sleep. All the news about Jeter is uplifting – hopefully he’s back soon…that will help in the field and probably sell some more tickets. GO YANKEES!!!

    I love the idea that Jeter’s return is around the corner, Diane. It’ll be great to see him!
