So much for Game 1.
But then the Yankees won Game 1 last year and what did that get them? Chien-Ming Wang was awful tonight and they lost. No further explanation is needed. It’s hard to win playoff games (or any game) with such poor pitching. It was the worst game of his career. He had never before allowed four walks and two homers in the same game.
Alex Rodriguez, meanwhile, is hitless in his last 15 playoff ABs and 4 of his last 43 with no RBI. Two ABs mean nothing, but it is what it is. The guy needs a big hit in October.
Back later with some audio and postgame comments.
