Blown saves are never fun, but I’m glad I missed today’s. I was at a screening and checked the score before I had to turn off my phone. The Yanks were tied with the Twins and our new kid (Chase Whitley) was going toe to toe with our old kid (Phil Hughes). Imagine my surprise when I got out of the theater and saw the score. Ugh.

Yes, even Mo blew saves, but for Robertson to have a complete meltdown – to the point where our offense had no chance to come back – was painful. This was the Twins we were facing, and we lost the series. Very disappointing. Hughes and Nunez must have felt a special satisfaction doing well in the Bronx and good for them, seriously, but the mostly anemic lineup of ours without Beltran and Teixeira is proving tricky.

Maybe Beltran will actually contribute, but I have less hope for Tex, whose wrist is bound to be a chronic issue. The good news is Whitley and the continued effectiveness of Betances and Warren.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again……I miss home runs!

    My sister and I were at the game yesterday. It was a beautiful sunny day. I was very nervous at the beginning of the ninth because we only had a one run lead. And then it all fell apart.

    Must have been tough to watch, Freya. I hope you had fun anyway.

    That hurt. Not only the blown save but allowing them to score so many runs in the top of the 9th…not that The Yankees were able to score even one run in the bottom of the 9th. Oh well…onward and (hopefully) upward. I know Oakland is in first place in their division but hopefully The Yankees can take this series…especially the Wednesday game I will be attending. GO YANKEES!!!
