A Clunker

September 12, 2009 – 8:32 pm

Baltimore 10, NYY4. That was certainly a clunker. Andy Pettitte pitched poorly, but in typical Pettitte style, he at least kept the Yankees in the ball game and gave them a chance to win. But then along came Damaso Marte and Edwar Ramirez and out went any chance of winning. Oh well, neither of those two are going to be pitching come post-season — certainly not Ramirez anyway, and hopefully there won’t be any need for Marte either.

On the positive side, Derek Jeter passed Lou Gehrig on the all-time hits list, so that story is finally over. As great a player and human being as Jeter is, and as much as he deserved all the priase he’s received over the last couple of days — it was really starting to be a bit too much. So now it’s back to the business of wrapping up home field advantage for the playoffs, right?
