Game Thread: New York Yankees @ Oakland Athletics 5/28

When the clock strikes 10:05 pm ET on the East Coast the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics will take the field for the first of a four game set inside Oakland Coliseum. Tonight the Yankees will send their big lefty CC Sabathia to the mound looking to start a new winning streak while Kendall Graveman looks to start a winning streak for the Athletics. The game will be played at 10:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network and MLB TV.

The Yankees stay out west for a few weeks before returning home to the Bronx in June. Have your Yankees tickets in hand for when the team returns home by clicking the Yankees Tickets link at the top of the blog.

Mr. Sabathia will take it from here, go Yankees!!


  1. I live in a different time zone than most of you, so I actually get to watch all of the west coast games. I want to clear something up for those of you that only got to see highlights or read the box score. The box score paints a pretty poor picture of CC, but he actually pitched pretty well. 2 balls were hit hard. One was a solo homerun that went 331 feet to clear a 330 foot fence to a very light hitter. The other was off the bat of a notorious Yankee killer in Brett Lawrie. The real story was Carpenter's inability to shut a game down. This has been happening all season long, and it's getting really frustrating. The other problem is the bottom of the order going hitless. Hitters 1-5 went 8 for 20, 6-9 went 0 for 14. Drew, Beltran, Young, and Didi cannot continue to be everyday players.

    1. I had a hunch you were out in the west somewhere or as old as...well older than 62!
      Two more years we move to Nevada, no matter what my Boss says! If she reads this, I am sleeping with the dogs for a week! LOL
      Have a cold one watching the game tonight Jeff!

  2. JEFF LEVIN..............A different time zone ?
    Impossible. Everyone here knows of your troubles with the Delaware State Police.
    All those stories last winter of you being detained, and one guy even went as far
    to say, that he saw you on a road gang. Cool Hand Luke ?
    Try a Coors Light, and clear your mind.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
