Deja vu all over again, as Yogi would say.
Again, the Yanks’ starter pitched well, the offense did nothing, and the bullpen let any chance of a comeback victory get away.
The Yanks lost to Toronto 7-0 Wednesday night to fall to 24-28.
Tanaka went six, gave up two runs, only one earned.
Again the Yanks scored two runs or less. That is what, 23 times in 52 games?
You hate typing up the same story, but the script isn’t changing.
One thing I heard on the radio upset me. John Sterling was talking about the Yanks trying out Refsnyder at 1B to backup Teix.. He said that Refsnyder’s D was questionable in the infield at 2B and 3B, and although he played RF the other night, that he didn’t have a RF arm, and although LF was possible, the Yanks had Gardner in LF, and that the Yanks were trying a place that Refsnyder could fit for his bat.
News flash to Sterling: Gardner is hitting .211. If Gardner continues like that, why NOT try Refsnyder in LF?
“The Yanks have Gardner in LF” …. Sheesh. John, what KEEPS Gardner in LF if he keeps hitting .211?
