Yesterday did not go as planned. Well, one part of it went precisely as planned. Masahiro Tanaka giving you eight innings of superb pitching while giving up only one run and striking out ten is always part of the plan. The Yankees' offense only scoring one run off of a not that great Orioles' pitching staff is definitely not what any of us had in mind. Ah well. It's tough to complain about the offense lately, as they have been coming up big for a while now. Just a frustrating loss. Couple it with the Blue Jays beating the Red Sox and it was just a meh night overall.CC Sabathia returns from the DL tonight to face the O's in the rubber game of this three game series. He will be sporting a heavier knee brace, so we'll see if that helps any. With the injuries beginning to pile on a bit, we could really use a decent start from CC tonight.
Comments of the Day
Agreed. Just play the kids. All the time. Every single day!
If there's one thing I dislike about baseball, it's the clusterbunt of a disjointed schedule.

Howard The Duck Theme Song by Cherry Bombs
It's For The Birds week on Pinstripe Alley. This song is easily the best part of the Howard the Duck movie. So very very 80's. As always, please link us your song of the day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. We'll either get good CC or bad CC tonight. In any case, help us offense.
