In a pinch

August 25, 2006: L.A. Angels 6, N.Y. Yankees 5

Another heartbreaker of a loss. Dotel gave up a walkoff sac fly in the bottom of the 9th. Torre should have put Mo in. He hasn't pitched for four days, so overuse isn't an issue.

This means, setting aside the five-game aberration in Boston, we are 7 for 17 since Bubba got DFA'd. A .411 team.

I really don't understand it. We'd won something like 9 out of 11 series before that. Since then, we've won two out of six. One out of five if you discount the Boston series. You'd think adding Abreu, Lidle, and Wilson would improve the team, but somehow, it hasn't.

Definitely missed Bubba in this game. The Yankees have no pinch-runner now. Joe tried putting in Nick Green for Posada in the 9th, but it was a disaster. I don't know if Nick missed a signal or what, but he tried to steal second while Craig Wilson was trying to bunt, and was out by a mile. He's not only slow, he's a bad baserunner. Sigh.
