Capuano Not As Excited As You'd Think After Beating Blue Jays

After last Sunday's victory over the White Sox, Yankees Pitcher Chris Capuano was understandably full of joy. 

No, he hadn't gotten the win in the contest due to David Robertson's blown save, but yes, his team had taken a game they trailed for the majority of, something that seemed to show an "it's about the team" attitude in Capuano.

So, though the veteran did finally get his first W yesterday with a 6-3 shutdown of the Blue Jays, I guess it's not that surprising that he was the same way last night, telling reporters following his nice start that he doesn't worry about getting decisions.

“At this point, we just want to win games as a team,” Capuano said, via The Star Ledger. “I’m not worried about stats or getting wins as a pitcher. You can’t control that.”

Capuano, a 36-year-old lefty who has previously played for five other clubs, came to the Bronx from the Rockies' Triple-A affiliate back on July 24, a trade that's definitely helped out the Yankees.

No, Capuano hasn't dominated during his first month in Pinstripes, but since he has still kept them competing you can't help but like having him in the rotation, where he's also thrown pretty well against the Tigers and Orioles.
