Buck Goes Ballistic

September 9th, 2013 by Jane Heller


At least there was entertainment during tonight’s loss to the Orioles and right off the top too. When Buck had his meltdown in the first inning – and no one has meltdowns like the Buckster – I actually laughed. Girardi, at whom he was yelling, was cool and collected in comparison. And the funny part was that it was all about the supposedly covert operation by the O’s third base coach to steal our signs or tip our pitches or whatever the hell it was. Like every team doesn’t try to do that. Please. It wasn’t exactly Edward Snowden leaking government secrets.

As for the game? Tillman’s a tough pitcher. CC made some mistakes. (By the way, he’s a klutz. Every time he fields a ground ball and tries to throw to second, he makes a bad throw – or so it seems.) He didn’t pitch badly and with some run support he could very well have gotten the “W.” Not tonight.

There were only the two homers on our end. Most of the hitters looked off balance and took weak swings.

And now we’ve dropped another game at a time when every win is precious. Not good. Not good at all.

    Well, at least they didn’t lose 9 – 0 in a one-hitter like The Mets did. I know, that really doesn’t help since our guys lost but I needed something to feel better about last night’s game. Tillman was extraordinary – we did get two home runs but that didn’t come close to helping. Gardner seemed very uncomforable at the plate – hope there’s nothing wrong with him and that he just doesn’t like batting against Tillman. The drama between Girardi and Showalter should continue through the rest of the series. Let’s home it helps US!! GO YANKEES!!!

    Gardner did seem uncomfortable at the plate, Diane, but as I said most of them did. Did you see Soriano’s at bats? Awful and he’s such a great hitter. Tillman really does have their number.

    They’re not going gently into that good night. Joe won’t let them.
    Keep raging, Yanks…
