Two interesting statistics:
Via Mark Feinsand: The Yankees have not trailed on the road since Joe Girardi got ejected back on June 24.
Via Raphy, one of our readers: A.J. Burnett is the first pitcher since at least 1954 to have thrown three or more wild pitches in three games in the same season.
A.J.’s last 8 starts: 6-2, 2.00. His first half of the season (8-4, 3.77) was pretty solid. Given what he did in the second half of last season, 17 or 18 wins is certainly a reasonable expectation.
Back in a bit with some audio.
