While nova simply could not throw his curve for a strike unless he hung it, This game got out of hand because of a terrible play by Ellsbury in CF. He got about as bad a read on a ball as possible (VERY late start) and then came running in and took a poor line to the ball, playing it off to the side, and not getting a glove on it to attempt to knock it down. he turned a routine out into a triple (the scoring is absurd as that is an error, I don't care whether he got a glove on it or not - the word error means a mistake and that was clearly a mistake). In the first inning, pitchers need help and this was the opposite and was a large reason the game got out of hand.
BTW, this was the type of game Ellsbury and Didi could take a game off with a lefty on the mound..of course, they just got a game off (at a bad time).
Today they talked about possibly moving CC to the pen. Maybe they should read this blog earlier because they spoke to his good job at getting lefties out...
Good to see Tex back in the lineup.
They should just drop Capuano now; of course they never should have gotten him in the first place.
Brendan Ryan was the only Yankee pitcher to not allow a run...and he pitched 2 scoreless innings.
At least it is only one leos!
