(76-59) How do you blow a 10 game lead in the AL East? Now tied with the "O's" for first place with Tampa knocking on the back door. Only 27 games left in the season to get healthy and get it together.

One of your best players had been hurt all season (Gardner), the best closer of all time has been lost all season, A-Rod has been injured, granderson is turning into an all or nothing hitter, and cc had been pitching (relatively, for him) in a mediocre fashion.

Given all that, it's probably the car that they were playing above their heads and a miracle that they've been in the lead for as much of the season as they've been.

(77-59) There was a slight glimmer of fundamental baseball last night in the top of the seventh inning. Let's hope this trend continues. Orioles at Camden Yard will be tough.

(77-60) Too little, too late. An offensive display in the top of the eighth was negated by the same in the bottom of the frame. Six long balls by the "O's" did not help either. Hughes on the hill today.

(78-60) Home runs with runners aboard made the difference. Hughes went six frames and gave up 3 runs. Interesting substitutions by Girardi utilizing 14 players.

(78-61) Tied up for first place again. RISP was 1 for 9. This could have gone our way. It seems they are always trying catch up when they get into the opposing teams bullpen.

(79-61) The day off starts with a good note from the win yesterday, but Teixeira remains questionable on the calf injury. It will interesting to see the new lineup in Boston from the big trade on Tuesday.

(79-62) Hanging tough until the bottom of the ninth. RISP was 1 for 12 last night at Fenway. Now tied with Baltimore. Tampa only two games behind. Sadly, another one run loss.

The Orioles are the best team in the American League. Last time I said that they lost a few games in a row.

The Orioles are the best team in the American League.

What a crappy game. Ridiculously lousy defense, crap hitting, and girardi pulling joba after 6 pitches then leaving drob in for 2 innings. Frustrating all around.

Absolutely!

(80-62) Still tied with Baltimore and man, we were lucky. RISP 0 for 13. If it wasn't for the long ball, we would have lost another one. Better get healthy start driving in runs if they expect to make the playoffs.

The Yankees have maintained at least a share of first place every day since June 11. In the past nine days, though, they've fallen into a tie with the Orioles four separate times after having been alone in first place since June 12.

Only 20 games left.

I know I was sweating with Ellsbury up. He is unbelievable against the Yanks, I was worried about another walkoff hit to win a game from him. But yeah we escaped.

He was last year. This year:
.235/.297/.294. ;-)


Girardi looks like a man panicking with his substitution.
