Verlander vs. Yankees

TIME/TV: 1:05 p.m., YES Network and TBS

WEATHER: There’s actually some sun today. I can’t believe it myself.

UMPIRES: HP Hunter Wendelstedt, 1B Dan Bellino, 2B Jerry Layne, 3B Bob Davidson

ON THE RUN: The Yankees stole a season-high five bases last night. That’s their most in any game the past three years (they also strole five twice in June of 2011). Last night marked their most stolen bases in a road game since May 26, 2009 at Texas. They have been successful in 19 of their last 21 attempts, and have been successful in 32 of 39 overall in 2012, the third-highest percentage in the Majors.

THE OLD MAN CAN RUN: Alex Rodriguez is 6-for-6 in stolen base attempts, his most in a season since 2009. He has successfully stolen his last 10 bases — dating back to last year — without being caught.

THAT’S A WRAP: The Yankees are 10-7 in series finales this season and have won their last three. The?are 5-4 in finales on the road. The Yankees have had five of their past 13 games decided by one run (going 2-3). Overall this season, they are 6-6 in one-run contests (2-4 on the road).

UPDATE, 1:15 p.m.: Jeter was wrong. The Yankees did score again. His leadoff homer in the first has put the Yankees in front 1-0.

UPDATE, 1:27 p.m.: Broken bat sacrifice fly by Teixeira — and a nice slide by Granderson — have given the Yankees another run and a 2-0 lead as Hughes goes to the mound.

UPDATE, 1:51 p.m.: It’s fun to watch Eric Chavez go get a ball again. His sliding catch in foul territory has ended the second inning with the Yankees still in front 2-0.

UPDATE, 1:56 p.m.: There’s the ninth home run of the year for Alex Rodriguez, his second of the series, for a 3-0 lead in the third inning.

UPDATE, 2:21 p.m.: Fielder goes deep, but Hughes gets through the next three to end the fourth with the Yankees in front 3-1.

UPDATE, 2:33 p.m.: Double by Granderson, triple by Cano and a throwing error by the Tigers. See, this offense thing isn’t so tough. Two more runs and a 5-1 lead for the Yankees.

UPDATE, 3:23 p.m.: Raise your hand if you expected Hughes to outpitch Verlander today.

UPDATE, 3:42 p.m.: Raise your hand if you expected Hughes to pitch into the ninth inning today. He’s out there now, about to start the final inning with a 5-1 lead.

    Go Huuuuuuuughes! Go Yanks!

  2. Dean Winters June 3rd, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    I agree Stewart can do what Martin does but they really love Martin. He probably re-signs for 1 yr with a team option for the second. They’ll have him work with Long in the winter and tell everyone he’s fixed. :(

    It might be a prolonged rebuilding process. Seeing how the Yankees are they would rather be the team they are now then completely rebuild. With the second wild card they would have to be really bad to be out of it.

  3. Dean Winters June 3rd, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    personally i’ve already decided that the team is screwed if they don’t make some radical changes.

    Montero has a .295 OBP. What a stud. lol

    Score early and frequently, Yankees…

  10. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    More breaking pitches and changeups early to keep Detroit off Hughes’s FB, Martin. Thanks!

    That is radical but they aren’t going to even attempt to do that. They aren’t wired that way. The only time in recent history when they traded present for future is if they’re tired of the player: Randy Johnson, Burnett, etc.

  18. Dean Winters June 3rd, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    What did Derek say in the dugout?

  19. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    So, he lied. They scored again this season.

    :)

    Dean,

    Agreed…But it doesn’t mean that it isn’t the radical right way to do it.

    CAPTAIN!!!!

  21. tomingeorgia June 3rd, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    That’s the kind of small ball I like.

  22. tucker June 3rd, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    Gotta love DJ. Following his clubhouse comments, am not surprised by that.

  23. Dean Winters June 3rd, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    @ Luis true good point.

  24. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    Derek, the reverse jinxer. Stealth. ;)

  25. jackamir June 3rd, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Jeter- Why does he always swing at the first pitch. Maybe that’s the best pitch he will see..

  26. m June 3rd, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Jeetah, Jeetah!

  27. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Veerlander seems off today, we better get him early.

  28. randy l. June 3rd, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    “Trade present for future…… Get as much value from your current MLB players to shorten the rebuilding process.”

    luis-

    also make an environment where young players flourish in the system. the present system doesn’t do that.

    the yankees really need to revamp their whole management system. in a way the best thing that could happen to them would be a red sox like implosion that makes radical change happen.

    in the meantime there is a baseball game today with it’s outcome not dependent on the yankees future . might as well enjoy verlander against hughes and co.

  29. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    Derek is batting .362 going after first pitch (not including the HR.)

    ====================

    Early didn’t seem to be a big problem ! LOL

  31. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    “Jeter- Why does he always swing at the first pitch. Maybe that’s the best pitch he will see..”

    As soon as he swung – but before I saw the result – I started to wonder the same thing. But then I figured that Verlander, especially Verlander who is on, puts hitters away quickly so you need to get to him fast.

    So far, Verlander doesn’t seem to be on.

  32. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Randy,

    Good points both on the issue and the game ;)

  33. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Rocky road for Verlander, lets put some whipped cream on it.

  35. m June 3rd, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    I agree. If they don’t make him pay now, they will regret it. I’ve seen this movie, and it doesn’t have a happy ending. :mad:

  36. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Bases loaded?

    I hope we don’t stop at ONE !

  41. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Even Robby’s swing seems to be off.

    He’ll figure it out.

  42. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Nope.

    You gonna beat him up or what ?

  44. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    I’ll say the ump isn’t doing Verlander any favors. Who is it, anyone know?

  45. 4 NYY June 3rd, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    That’s TWO !

  51. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    So when you’re tempted to call him binder Joe, remember that Wise has a much better record against Verlander than Ibanez, and he didn’t get the start.

  52. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Well….Two runs, not as good as i hoped, but i’ll take it. The good thing tough is that Veerlander threw a ton of pitches

  53. Poetkiosk June 3rd, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Do you disagree that Robbie is very off this season?

  54. jackamir June 3rd, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    Alright Phil the ball is in your court. Bring it home.. Shutdown inning, PLEASE….

  55. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    JAYS LEADING 3-0!

    YAY!!!!

    Keep it up , Jays!

    :)

  56. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:28 pm

    Come on Hughesy…Make the lead stand.

  57. deleonj June 3rd, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    pretty sure phil gives those 2 runs back

    Jeter wants this game and series badly!

  60. m June 3rd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Some loud outs, but outs nonetheless.

  61. Poetkiosk June 3rd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    So far Hughes looks good

  62. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    That was a nice pitch…

  63. 4 NYY June 3rd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Verlander is good, we all know that. But, he does give up some runs now and then. He does get hit like everyone else.

    He certainly gets tougher a lot as the game proceeds.

  64. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    One more, Philip.

  65. GregD June 3rd, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    Hughes better use that change up today……

  66. jackamir June 3rd, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    Nothing, give Cabrera nothing.

  67. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    We’ve actually hit Verlander pretty well in general.

  68. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    Not sure that Wendelstedt isn’t doing a little squeezing on both sides.

  69. m June 3rd, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    That last pitch was a beaut.

  70. darbodla June 3rd, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    2 outs walk them both.

  71. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 1:33 pm

    2 outs on 7 pitches, so far so good.

    Like the way he went outside and then inside on the leadoff, but that curve he lined out on to Jeter didn’t break.

    Verlander, we’ve had moderate success against, ’cause we’ve made him throw a ton of pitches and softened him up some, and denied him his usual length in some of his starts. He may be hitting a little bit of a wall though, lately, as he got hammered by Boston, or at least gave up some runs. Good idea to take advantage.

  72. GregD June 3rd, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    well at least he tried the change up

  73. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    Gets him on the change.

  74. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    Beautiful. He slowed it down. It worked.

  75. 4 NYY June 3rd, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    Do you disagree that Robbie is very off this season?

    If this was directed at me, I totally agree. I was just “jesting” a little.

    nice start for Phil

  77. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Atta boy Phil….The first is always the hardest.

  78. GregD June 3rd, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    that was a change up

  79. Yankee Trader June 3rd, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Popup to the warning track-that guy is strong!

  80. jackamir June 3rd, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Shutdown, good job Philly.. Confidence builder.

  81. randy l. June 3rd, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    “Derek is batting .362 going after first pitch (not including the HR.)”

    yankeefeminista-

    i have no problem with derek swinging at the first pitch, but i’ve never quite understood this stat.

    does it mean when he swings at the first pitch and hits it?

    of does it mean that when he swings at the first pitch, he hits a certain batting average in those at bats? for example say he swngs at the first pitch and he fouls it off and is 0-1 . then a ball comes. 1-1. then a called strike . 1-2. and then he hits a grounder to second.

    swinging at the first pitch and getting in a hole may have set up a bad at bat. is this counted in the BA of swinging at the first pitch.

    or does swinging at the first pitch BA mean BA when hitting the first pitch?

  82. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Very efficient first inning for Phil. 17 pitches. I like.

  83. 4 NYY June 3rd, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    jackamir June 3rd, 2012 at 1:32 pm
    Nothing, give Cabrera nothing.

    If it was H.S. ball, I’d just point to first.

  94. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 1:41 pm

    luis, randy,

    Without getting into a protracted discussion, just want to say aye on both comments: luis’ shortening the rebuilding period, and randy seeing a need to change the management culture.

    Aye, aye.

  95. b_widmer2 June 3rd, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    And there it is

  98. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    “Oh boy, RISP…”

    Nobody brings ALL of them in. Most don’t bring many in against Verlander.

    Let’s see how the rest of the game goes.

  99. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    Well….He can’t get them all out of the park…. ;)

  100. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    Maybe Jete was thinking like Oscar Gamble in the first: when I’m at the plate, I’m always in scoring position ;)

  101. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    True, luis, and he has something like .275/.390 with RISP last I looked. Of course, limited SLG.

  102. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    Bard in trouble today. 5 BB, only in 2nd inning. Walked the first two, nobody out.

    FWIW

    ;)

  103. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:46 pm

    CB on the outsided corner

  104. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    Hmmm. I brought all of that stuff up during Phil’s last start.

  105. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:47 pm

    K-urve!

  106. GregD June 3rd, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    it’s only been four batters but I like Phil’s approach

  107. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Pitching backwards. :)

  108. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    YF,

    It doesn’t matter, he along with Arod are the best situational hitters the Yankees have. I would have waited a little on this instance, since Veerlander is having so much command issues.

  109. b_widmer2 June 3rd, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    No complaints here really. He swings at the first pitch twice, one works and one fails. If he hits .500 I’m totally fine with that.

  110. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:48 pm

    Nice curve there.

  111. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Gorgeous curve!

  112. luis June 3rd, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Nasty CB

  113. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    Bautista took Bard deep. It’s 3-0. Only 1 hit, though. Bard must have his usual stellar control :D

  114. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    That one got too much plate. Did Hughes shake Martin off?

  115. jackamir June 3rd, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    I lived in LA for about 10 yrs. in the ’70′s. It was a wild time or maybe it was for me. How did you become a Yankee fan,
    4NYY

  116. I Am Winning June 3rd, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Hughes curve has a nice 12-6 action to it today. Looks real strong. Fastball command is not that sharp though.

  117. randy l. June 3rd, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    “Randy, BA on the first pitch regardless of what the batter does. He is now 18/48, I believe.”

    they should call it “BA on the first pitch( when he hits it)” then because there are a whole lot of times he swings at the first pitch and the at bat continues. therefore the conclusion that swinging at the first pitch results in 18/48 isn’t really accurate. it’s a misleading stat really.

  118. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Yay, Chavy!

  119. GregD June 3rd, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    Ah, great play from Chavez

  122. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    luis, yankeefem, randy (and anyone else who is interested): The Son is catching, hitting 3rd today :D

    Nice Chavy

  124. Yankee Trader June 3rd, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Gold glove play.

  125. randy l. June 3rd, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    it’s really BA when hitting the first pitch and not batting average when swinging at the first pitch.

  126. I Am Winning June 3rd, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    Chavez with a great play. ARod is solid in the field but I’m not sure the prima Donna would have dived for that ball like Chavez.

  127. GregD June 3rd, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    I hope Chavez didn’t get hurt…..

    Great play by Chavez!! Two very good inning from Hughes so far…He has his FB, the CB has looked very good (some unhittable ones), has thrown a few CU’s, didn’t liked them that much ( staying too long on the middle)

  131. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    More breaking pitches and changeups early to keep Detroit off Hughes’s FB, Martin. Thanks!

    Did Martin actually said that?”

    I think this was yankeefeminista’s advice to Martin, not a quote from Martin. Was it bad advice?

    Alex doesn’t make that play to end the inning. Chavez using his Colliseum resume. :) Great slide.

  137. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Bard just walked in a run.

    **************

    I’m more convinced now than ever that Phil’s rocky outing last start out, at least part of it, had to do with pitching in front of the home-town crowd.

    I lived in LA for about 10 yrs. in the ’70?s. It was a wild time or maybe it was for me. How did you become a Yankee fan,
    4NYY

    ======================================

    When a wee lad, Yanks were playing Braves in W.S. ( 57′ ) They lost, but I liked them and they came back the next year, down 3-1 to Braves and came back to win W.S. then. From that time forward I followed them as closely as can be done without ever being in N.Y.

    Wow ! Alex !

  153. deleonj June 3rd, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    YT, was it four straight FB’s to Alex?

  160. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    Nick in SF,

    Nice link on Leche you provided last night. Didn’t know he had a kid stashed in NYC. Despite his current cult status and seeming West Coast bliss, if he stays on pace, and the Yanks want to pony up, he might lean toward a return to be closer to his daughter. Also, as a guy with more developed power since he left us, he might want to revisit the RF porch. His LH slug is “only” .526, which is nice, but he’ss slugging .623 from the right side.

    I think, when all is said and done, it’s clear that the Yankees had it wrong: it was Melky who needed to get away from Robi, and Robi who needs Melky to be good :roll: /seehowsilly&easythisis

    I’m convinced Phil is tipping and the Angels ( and I think the Rays) have picked up on it. They are sitting on everything he throws ( even CB’s) from the stretch.

    I know I am the only one who thinks that way, and thats ok. I know if I can call it. so can they.

    The question was -Who hit 20 homers playing for both the Tigers and Yankees. It wasn’t Colavito, as I see he had 5 homers in his final year playing baseball as a Yankee.

    Apparently there are two players.

  225. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Darn, should have crushed that.

  226. Captain Clutch June 3rd, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Hopefully they can take advantage of their opportunities against Verlander. I doubt that Hughes can hold them down much longer. Especially when Cabrera and Fielder come around in the lineup again. He just doesn’t have the stuff to get great hitters out.

  227. trisha - true pinstriped blue June 3rd, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Sweet, a little league HR for Cano.

  243. GreenBeret7 June 3rd, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    hard as it could be, this might be the first time this year that Cano, Rodriguez and Teixeira have all driven in a run in the same game. I haven’t looked, though.

    Colavito bat up through about ’63 was about as quick as sheffield’s was. he could pull anybody and still keep it fair.

  252. Captain Clutch June 3rd, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    You cant’ walk guys not named Cabrera and Fielder in this garbage lineup. Hughes is so frustrating to watch. Keep the ball in the ballaprk and don’t shake off Martin.

    This is going to be the tough inning for Hughes with Cabrera and Fielder up. It seems like pure luck when he actually gets Cabrera out.

    to put it in perspective how much baseball these guys on tv go though in their lives, i caught two inning with jeff jones pitching 21 years ago in an exhibition game. he struck out four with a good fastball.
    i thought jeff was old then. he’s been doing this pitching coach thing for another 21 years after i already thought he was an old veteran. i actually don’t know how they do it. that’s a lot of baseball.
    the amount of baseball a guy like jeff jones has seen is at least a 100 times what i’ve seen.
    these guys know stuff about baseball we don’t even know exists.

  317. randy l. June 3rd, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    “Why is Leyland letting Verlander throw 115 pitches in a 5-1 game? Stupid.”

    building his arm up for when he needs to throw 125-130?

    it seems the tigers are old school in this regard.

    maybe they are right. the rangers are doing it too.

  321. randy l. June 3rd, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    “Seattle could use Nunez ”

    j.a.p.

    yeah, but that Z gm would probably talk cashman into taking a promising batting practice pitcher saying that the guy is so good he’ll improve the yankees offense if he were willing to let him go

  322. Bo knows June 3rd, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    The best news re Hughes is that his CB is in the upper 70s. That’s a huge difference.

    Rothschield does his job.

    This is just what the doctor ordered.

    That’s one!

    Cashman licking his chops: ‘nine innings of 1-run ball for Hughes. Now, I can trade him for a real pitcher!’ ;)

  380. OldSchoolYankeeFan June 3rd, 2012 at 3:47 pm

  381. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    Last one, Philip!!

  382. jackamir June 3rd, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Looks like we will be playing for first place this week. I know its early but posession is still 3/5 of the law.

  383. OldSchoolYankeeFan June 3rd, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Doh!!

  384. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Randy,

  385. TheStraw June 3rd, 2012 at 3:48 pm

    Let him finish it Binder!

    Sori is up in the pen.

  387. Nick in SF June 3rd, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    Only needed 5 K’s from Hughes today, this is overkill. Love it.

    Come on, Phil, one more out! Don’t be distracted by the crazy drunk Tigers fan, please.

  388. OldSchoolYankeeFan June 3rd, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Cool, resisting arrest, have a nice day!!

  389. Benny Blanco June 3rd, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Thank god!!

  390. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    One more pitch; one more out, Phil!

    Ah, a postgame where I can just sit back and enjoy every second of it.

    :)

  393. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    K! HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGHES!

  394. OldSchoolYankeeFan June 3rd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Sweet!!!

  395. RadioKev June 3rd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Good for Hughes

  396. TheStraw June 3rd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Nice Phinish!

  397. Nilsson June 3rd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Gold star next to Hughes today.

  398. Benny Blanco June 3rd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Congrats!!!!!!!!! Phil! We give him so much crap and criticism. He deserves it!

  399. GreenBeret7 June 3rd, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Great outing by Hughes. Very sabathia/Verlander-like game.

  400. m June 3rd, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    What a game! Glad he was given the chance to finish it this time. Remember the 8+ innings in Texas?

  401. yankeefeminista June 3rd, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    I was going to eat lunch when Hughes came out, but he never did. :) Well worth the hunger pangs! Huuuuughes!

  402. comet June 3rd, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    Now that is pitching! What a great game. In the fight for first.

    Hope this one builds Hughes confidence!

  403. J. Alfred Prufrock June 3rd, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    That’s the Phil Hughes I’m talkin’ about…:D

    HUUUUUUGHESSS

  404. Yankee Trader June 3rd, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    A stellar, superlative, start for Phil Hughes. 1st CG after 53 games for the Yankees.

    Kudos to Phil 4 hitter, 8 punchouts.

    Nothing like it when you beat the best pitcher in AL!! :)

  405. igotid88 June 3rd, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    I was hoping for a complete game for Hughes. 2nd career complete game but first 9 inning one.

  406. Dill Pickler June 3rd, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    Big, big win! Hughes needs to use this to turn his season around. Also ARod and Cano getting big hits — great way to end the road trip. Now let’s carry it over against the Rays!

  407. JobaTipsHisCap June 3rd, 2012 at 3:58 pm

    very impressive performance by Hughes, hopefully he can keep up like this.

  408. GreenBeret7 June 3rd, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    Yankee Trader June 3rd, 2012 at 3:36 pm
    Missed the middle innings.

    YF-Watching game on MLB.TV same as you.

    Let Phil go out to at least pitch to Cabrera.

    GB-
    When is the last time Cano, A-Rod, and Tex had an RBI each in the same game?-The comeback in Fenway?

    ————————————————————————————————————————-

    Well, no wonder I didn’t remember that. It was 2 months ago. I can’t remember yesterday’s game.

    This is so because with a change in fashion, more and more people are diverting towards having something new, matching with their clothes. Handbags are their first option to maintain their style.
