Can’t ask for more from today’s win at the Stadium. The Yankees punished the purple-helmet-wearing Rockies every which way – from a super performance by CC to a combo of situational hitting and power.
How excellent that CC is the first pitcher in the majors with 10 wins. And very quietly A-Rod has accumulated 50 RBIs. Not too shabby for either of them.
My only question is this: WHY DID JOE TAKE CC OUT AFTER THE 8TH?
He was just over 100 pitches and dominating. Did we really need Buddy Carlyle to remind us what mediocrity looks like? Did we really need to watch Mo having to start throwing in an inning that began with an 8-1 lead? Silly.
And A-Rod….He’s admitted that his shoulder is banged up, but he wasn’t running well. I really hope we’re not talking about something that could put him on the DL – not with all those RBIs.
