Sabathia only goes 5.2 innings, 9 hits, 5 runs, 1 earned and blows a 4-0 lead. If you know anything about a knuckle ball you know that it's pretty damn unpredictable. He didn't have the movement or the control he's had of late with 3 walks. Dickey only gave up 5 hits in 6 innings with 1 big 3 run blast by that very hated retard Swisher and the worst bullpen in the NL caves again. Dickey has been the best pitcher is baseball. The Yankmees didn't hit him hard at all. All good things come to an end. Time to start another streak for Dickey.
The YANKEES did not get a lot of hits but so what they got enough. the hits they got were hard hit balls, alomg with a nunber of hard hit and long fly outs.
As for Swish, are you kidding he is loved here or do you just wish he was on your team.
As for the knuckleball I’ve seen a few guys who are good at it. Perhaps you remember Hoyt Wilhelm. He started his career with the New York Giants and ended with the Brooklyn Dodgers of Los Angeles. As I’m sure you know most catchers hate having to catch a knuckleballer and have oversized mitts, but it is difficult.
R. A. Can start the streak again and may just break Hershiser’s record of 59, since the muts will not plat y the YANKEES again until next year.
I'm not talkin the Bronx. Swisher is hated throughout MLB by the players and by most non Yankmee fans as well. Just in case you missed it. Better come out of your bubble.
If the Yankmees do make the playoffs, they completely lack the ability to score runs other than with the home run. The are unable to manufacture runs via the hit and run or stolen base. They are 1-13 in games in which they do not hit a home run. A good pitching staff will shut them down as good pitching always stops good hitting.
