Yankees Report Card
Guys who did their jobs:
- Joba Chamberlain started the game gy giving up 5 consecutive hits to make the score 4-0. Then he proceeded to strike out 12, including 8 in a row before he was taken out for no reason.
- Melk Cabrera- 2 doubles, single
- Johnny Damon, showing power
Guys who didn’t do their jobs:
- Ramiro Pena, 3 runners left on
- Jose Molina, 2 runners left on. With Jorge Posada on the DL, the catching situation is a problem.
- Jon Albaledejo let the close 4-3 game get away
- Mark Melacon- Walk City
- David Roberston- let’s walk an inherited runner to score.
Joe Girardi nitpick (sorry): How do you remove a pitcher in the 6th inning (108 pitches) who had just struck out 8 men in a row? Oh, I know. Just following orders from the CashMan. Maybe fans and reporters will start to give Joba some slack for not going deep into games- he obviously is on a strict pitch count- he wasn’t even allowed to get the final out in the 6th. What’s the difference between 108 pitches and 112 pitches? Would Joba’s arm fall off? Heck, let the kid pitch the 7th, too. Every big name pitcher has thrown 130 at some point. When will Joba be allowed to go way past 100?
How the Yankees lost: Outclassed and hitters sucking with runners in scoring position.
