Last night’s game against Oakland was frustrating for a few reasons.
1) The A’s aren’t good (And I can already hear people saying, “Well, the Yankees aren’t good either!!” Just save it. The A’s are 18-32. That’s really bad.)
2) They were 2-15 in one run games going into last night’s game and now they’re 3-15. Thanks a lot, CC Sabathia and David Carpenter!
3) We had to stay up late to watch the sixth and seventh innings unfold. At least when it’s an east coast game or a home game, we’re not up past midnight.
In my opinion, and we can argue about this in the comment’s section if you’d like, nothing is more annoying than watching a pitcher throw a meatball to a hitter that results in a two-run, game-tying home run. Especially when that home run comes after a big strikeout and there’s a possiblity of getting out of the inning unscathed.
Here’s the 83 m.p.h. changeup CC Sabathia threw to Brett Lawrie.…
