Hot night + hot starter = loss

The Yankees ran into a hot starter tonight. Jeremy Guthrie’s ERA of 2.89 is second in the American League and he was throwing his two-seam sinking fastball at 97 mph. That’s why the Yankees grounded into 11 outs against him.

Andy Pettitte wasn’t awful but he again told us tonight how he doesn’t feel right on the mound. It’s a refrain he has been going to for five or six starts now. His command is off, he said, it’s nothing physical.

Scott Proctor is another story. That’s four homers in his last five appearances. He has allowed eight homers in 54.1 innings. He looks like a guy who is worried about being traded, which perhaps he should be.

Talked to several people around baseball today who are convinced the Yankees will make a move for offensive help and a reliever before the deadline. Depending who you ask, you hear different names.

Finally, let me close a long day with this. The Baltimore PR staff does a nice job of providing us with stats, notes and even a sheet with quotes from both managers.

For Dave Trembley tonight, there were two paragraphs of his quotes then it said, “Tape recorder died, comprehsive quote sheet tomorrow.”

There’s also another game to talk about tomorrow. But their heart is in the right place.
