Just realized I forgot to put these up before the start of the series. Sorry about that. Flying across the country and going to the White House kind of knocked me off track. Here are the next two matchups, anyway.

Tonight
LHP CC Sabathia (2-1, 3.00) vs. RHP Jeremy Guthrie (0-2, 3.46)
7:05 p.m., YES Network

Thursday
RHP A.J. Burnett (2-0, 3.20) vs. LHP Brian Matusz (2-0, 4.38)

    Chad -

    Going to the White House – ho-hum, just another day at the office! :lol:

    Chad-

    Do you get frequent flier miles???

    It would be nice if you got to take Mrs. Jennings someplace awesome in the offseason

    I don’t anticipate the next two games will be easy, but they need to take them if for no other reason than to keep pace with both the Rays and Sox.

  4. Rich in NJ April 28th, 2010 at 10:37 am

    Two wins.

  5. Fran (the original) and OPPC member April 28th, 2010 at 10:40 am

    The Yankees have their #1 and #2 starters going against the Orioles. They should take these next 2 games.

    Extra Innings is actually carrying the YES feed tonight!!! Very excited. It seems like I haven’t gotten to watch YES in a LONG time.

    Of the Yankees seven losses, the starting pitchers were:

    CC – 2
    Burnett – 1
    Pettitte – 0
    Vazquez – 3
    Hughes – 1

    However, only 4 of the losses were due to the starting pitchers – CC (1) and Vazquez (3). Park, Chamberlain and Robertson got the other 3 losses.

    I think CC bounces back today. His last outing was pretty predictable considering how badly he always performs in Oakland.

    I got very good feedback at work though

    Sounds like you could be rockin the sexy librarian. Are they dark plastic?

    I don’t know what it is but the right pair of glas-ses can really turn up the sex appeal for a woman. At least for me.

    Men can look more intelligent with glas-ses but women? from pu-ssycats to tigers.

  10. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 28th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    CC will pitch well, but the hitters have to wake up.

  11. Betsy - Hughes rules (Pleading the Fifth) April 28th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    I must be a tiger then, lol…………

  12. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 28th, 2010 at 10:47 am

    Henry from DC -

    You can’t discount the offense as having been a part of some of those losses, as well. In Vazquez’ first two starts, for instance, the Yankees didn’t do much offensively against Price and Pineiro, and I believe Javy and the BP kept them in both games.

    CC, too, I think, one of his losses he started out poorly, but kept them in the game against Oakland. Offense couldn’t come back.

    At least that’s what I’m remembering. I don’t feel like looking it up – it’s laundry day, not my favorite.

    “Extra Innings is actually carrying the YES feed tonight!!! Very excited”

    I agree, but the HD broadcast will be the MASN feed. So it is either average picture, Yankee announcers; or bad announcers, great picture. I think I will start with YES, if the Yankees are winning, maybe I will switch to MASN. The other teams crew is so much easier to take when they are getting pounded. Everybody is always so smug when the are beating the Yankees.

  14. GeorgeInJax April 28th, 2010 at 10:51 am

    Despite this bad loss last night, there are a couple of bright spots so far into the season.

    Cano is doing a great job batting 5th
    Posada has his power stroke going on
    Granderson and Gardner are exceeding most expectations.

    Hopefully Tex will start hitting and the bullpen, which was supposed to be one of our strengths will get in line and the Bomber machine will be humming right along again.

    I’ll take the average picture. :)

  16. Patrick from CT April 28th, 2010 at 10:53 am

    The Yankees need to hit more to win!
    Don’t expect both CC and AJ to throw shutouts.

  17. Mark in Tampa April 28th, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Shame Spencer,
    repost from last thread re: 5 IF, 2 OF defense

    It was a funny scene. Maddon walked out to the mound with a glove in his hand, I thought he was making a pitching change and the reliever had forgotten his glove in the clubhouse. The TV station thought so too, they cut away to a commercial. But, he was just calling a mound conference to align the defense, and the glove was Zobrist’s IF glove, who he was bringing in from RF. Crawford and Upton played a 2-man outfield.

  18. HenryfromDC April 28th, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Hi Doreen,

    Yup, that’s true, of course. Although you gotta think that the players confidence is better when a Pettitte is on the mound than a Vazquez. They probably play looser and more optimistic knowing Pettitte is good at keeping them in the game, regardless of the score.

    That being said, we’re still waiting for Tex, Swish and Granderson to start popping it again. At least Swish did well yesterday.

  19. MTU (aka GBURL) April 28th, 2010 at 10:54 am

    People forget that CC is exceeding expectations so far.

    He is normally a very slow starter ( no pun intended).

    The fact that he has been as good as he has this early is a bonus, and bodes well for the season.

    Whatever he does at this point is just gravy. :)

    They are a very thin frame and the outer rim is dark- so I guess so. LOL

    In all honesty, I wasn’t trying to change my look. But after a full busy season of staring at a computer for 14 hours a day with contacts in- my eyes were revolting against me

    Erica-

    “But after a full busy season of staring at a computer for 14 hours a day with contacts in- my eyes were revolting against me”

    Geez, that must hurt keeping as many contacts as you have in your eyes. How did you sqeeze all that info. in there ? :)

  22. Phil Columbus April 28th, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Who is doing the game for YES tonight? I think Gary Thorne and Jim Palmer do a pretty good job.

  23. Doreen - GTLU Standings & Rules April 28th, 2010 at 11:02 am

    Henry from DC -

    I’m sure you’re right about the players’ comfort level depending upon the starter that day. I think aside from Javy (and I really do believe he’ll come around), right now they’ve got to think they have a chance behind all of their starters.

    New Post: Best big contract in baseball

  25. trisha - OPPC member who sees, hears, and knows all. 28 is on its way!!!!! April 28th, 2010 at 11:44 am

    (This is a general baseball gripe of mine; I am using the Orioles as the current example)

    “The Os are not as bad a team as their record indicates. I watched some of the red sox/Os games while visiting my sister last weekend. Their major weakness (as w/ the Rays in the past) is their bullpen. They can hit, in one of the games they lost, they had 17 hits!”

    Upstate, thank you for pointing that out! One of my biggest frustrations when it comes to baseball – and as a champion of the underdogs – is the laziness involved with fans making sweeping statements about teams. It’s contagious, and soon you have a parrot bar all saying the same thing and feeding off each other’s frenzy and angst. A goodly number of posters here were convinced that the Yankees were playing a worthlless team – that’s because they all parrot each other – and were beside themselves when the Yankees lost to this “worthless team”. If people just took the time to educate themselves and look more closely – the way you did – they wouldn’t have been inconsolable that the Yankees lost to the Orioles “of all teams”.

    Anyone paying attention to the Orioles at all would have noticed that they have some very good starting pitching (Kevin Millwood is obviously not a slouch), very good offense, and an ineffective bullpen. Twice that they lost to the Sux they lost because of a bullpen implosion. Both times they ended up losing by one run. I understand from reading the blog that the Yankees played sloppy ball. If they had played better ball maybe they would have won. But don’t underestimate the Orioles because they have a terrible record and are in last place. I’m sure there are times that there are teams in last that have absolutely nothing going for them. It isn’t the case with the Orioles.

    :)

    Agreed about oakland but he gave up 8 in 4 + in tampa. that is not keeping us in the game.

    xOiY7K You made some good points there. I looked on the internet for the topic and found most persons will approve with your site.
