Kind of a weird night

As last night unfolded, there came a point when it stopped feeling like a baseball game. It was too disjointed. The teams tied out of the gate. Then Billy Butler got a home to bang off the foul pole. Then neither team did much of anything. It was nothing but a series of snapshots, with rain in between.

“It was just kind of a weird night,” Joe Girardi said.

Should Curtis Granderson have bunted in the ninth inning? I don’t know. Maybe. But I don’t mind playing for the win in that spot rather than playing to move the tying run station-to-station, and Granderson did hit the ball pretty hard. I guess you can say swinging away was the wrong choice because the Yankees lost the game, but I can’t say bunting would have changed the final result.

It really was just weird night. This is what it looked like.
