    I don't think it's any issue - I think it's a statistical anomaly. I also don't care how the runs are scored is the main point, as long as they're scored.

    A better catcher would have helped... That was 4 runs right there.

    I'm also getting sick of Robbie Thompson...

    At least Kyle Farnsworth finally did something good for the Yankees today. :)

    Martin is surely not the player he was last year.
    Thompson can get a little mercurial at times.
    With an era of 20.25, 3 earned runs, and four walks.

    (49-32) Their first win at Tampa & the day off today. Phelps and the pen kept it close enough to win thanks to Kyle. Boston series this weekend in Beantown.

    (50-32) A real dogfight in Boston last night with five runs each in the first inning alone. Teixeira managed a go ahead, two-out triple in the seventh to seal the deal. Double-header today.

    (51-33) The split from yesterday erased a chance for a sweep in Boston. Four errors leading to seven runs did us in. Still up by 6 in the A.L. East.

    (52-33) Nova now 10-3 after 6 frames and 10K's last night. Jones had a hell of series in Beantown. Home Run Derby tonight and the All-Star Game on Tuesday.

    (54-33) One hell of a game on Friday and yesterday wasn't too bad either. Playing well since the break. Chance to sweep the Angels this afternoon if the weather holds up.

    (54-34) Despite the long balls given up by both teams, the Bombers came up short. Cano getting caught twice off first by Weaver and Wilson didn't help either. Martin still struggling at the plate.

    (55-34) Tight game until the bottom of the eighth with 3 on and two outs. Way to come through to break the game open Raoul.

    (56-34) A great performance by C.C. on his return from the DL.................6 shutout innings, 87 pitches, 66 strikes, in facing 23 batters.

    Hey Bautista, you were saying something about "watch out for the what team in the AL?"

    (57-34) Wasn't able to catch the game, but I caught the news this morning. Let's see what happens on the road this week with the A's and Seattle.

    (57-35) Close game, but the A's came up with one more hit and one more run. Nova against the rookie tonight.

    (57-36) A walkoff single in the bottom of the ninth seals the deal for Oakland as the Bombers lose another close one. Six LOB and 0 for 3 with RISP. Hughes looking for win #10 today.

    (57-37) Three one run losses in a row. My hat is off to the A's for keeping the Yanks at bay. A real duel on the mound. Hopefully we are not looking at a sweep. C.C. going for #11 today

    (57-38) Make that 4 in a row by one run.

    Runners left in scoring position, 2 out: Nix, J 2; Rodriguez, Al; Jeter; Chavez, Er.
    Team RISP: 3-for-11.
    Team LOB: 11.

    Let's hope this doesn't continue in Seattle.

    And the A's were 1-6 risp, with 3 homers to the Yankees 1. Remember what I told you about how it doesn't matter how you get your runs in or barisp, as long as you get the runs in? :-)

    Probably not (83 ops+), but hopefully (should see better balls to hit being in new york's lineup).

    Of course it's wasted - every out is a wasted opportunity. And as demonstrated by the a's wins, no, timing is NOT everything. Scoring more runs is everything, regardless of when or how. Even when your complaining about a specific game where it shows this, you still don't believe it. :-)
