Yankees @ Tigers 8/8/12

Somebody was listening to my article, seen HERE, about needing to move Curtis Granderson out of the leadoff spot. Think Girardi reads The Greedy Pinstripes?

UPDATE

Eric Chavez RBI single makes it 1-0 Yanks

Curtis Granderson follows that up with an RBI single of his own 2-0 Yanks

Curtis Granderson will never bat lead off again, especially after that 3 run home run
5-0 Yanks

Nick Swisher RBI single 6-0 Yanks

Mark Teixeira sac fly 7-0 Yanks

Ichiro RBI infield single makes it 8-3

Mark Teixeira adds an insurance run to make it 9-7 Yanks

Productive out for Chavez makes it 10-7 Yanks

Now we've seen it all tonight. A balk makes it 11-8 Yankees

Robinson Cano singles to make it 12-8 Yankees

Yankees win a wild one 12-8



In the fifth consecutive game in a twenty games in twenty days stretch the New York Yankees will be taking on the Detroit Tigers once again tonight in Comerica Park in Detroit. On the mound for the Yankees will be Yankees ace CC Sabathia and he will be opposed by recently acquired Anibal Sanchez for the Tigers. The game will be televised at 7:05 pm ET on YES.

  1. Has Angusne considered that CC pitched poorly because Martin was behind the plate? Just wondering.

  5. I don't buy the idea that pitchers are better with certain catchers. Especially a guy like CC, who is a legit "ace", and has played for 3 different teams throwing 200+ innings to 4 different catchers (that doesn't include 192.1 innings to Josh Bard).

  8. Was Martin not behind the plate in CC's complete game against the Mariners?
