You Mean We Can’t Win Every Game Now?

August 15th, 2013 by Jane Heller

LaughingWomanI knew the streak had to come to an end at some point, but I was hoping for a four-game sweep of the Angels. Hughes wasn’t bad at all, so that wasn’t the problem. C.J. Wilson was. He’s tough, no question, and I wish Cashman had signed him when he was a free agent. The Yanks did have scoring chances from what I saw as I watched off and on throughout the afternoon, and they did stage a ninth inning comeback. But thanks to a massive fail by Boone Logan and an out-of-nowhere offensive burst from the little known former Yankee, Chris Nelson, the deficit was too great to overcome.

Oh well. Now it’s on to Boston where it won’t get any easier. I’d say this is a do-or-die series at Fenway this weekend. If we take the series, there’s still a fighting chance for us. If we drop the series or, worse, get swept, it’ll be see you next year.

Maybe.

    Obviously I didn’t watch the game live because I was working, and I don’t watch re-plays when I know they’ve lost, so didn’t see any of that game. Was Logan really that bad? The comeback at the end would have been sufficient if he had not given up that grand slam. Oh well, to paraphrase a song, “3 our of 3 ain’t bad”. I’m truly worried about them heading off to Boston now…hopefully they find a way to win at least 2 of these games. GO YANKEES!!!

    Well, giving up a grand slam to Chris Nelson wasn’t exactly stellar work by Logan, Diane. And then Joba gave up another run in his “mop up” role. But that’s that and now it’s essential to win in Boston – or else.
