I love Yankee fans. Depressed and devastated over Game 1’s loss and being antagonized by pathetic assholes who have nothing in their life beyond taking joy in someone else’s misery, I got my rejuvenation from other Yank fans.
Who all agreed we’re down, but not out. Not by a long shot.
How much more do you need to know here? The Yankees got shut down by Cliff Lee. CC Sabathia let up 2 solo homeruns to Chase Utley and Chase Utley. David Robertson, once the Houdini of bases-loaded-jams, gave up a base hit in the 8th to Raul Ibanez to make it 4-0.
Then Ryan Howard doubled in the 9th for 2 more runs. A couple of meaningless baserunners in the the bottom of the inning allowed Derek Jeter to score, but it was too much for even the Yanks to overcome.
We lost out first game at home.
A.J. Burnett better rip the Phillies a new one tonight.
Game Preview to come later today…
