Braves Down Yanks 3-2

The Yanks mustered little offense today, and Ian Kennedy had some command issues as the Yanks lost 3-2 to Atlanta.  Dan Giese was good in relief and also helped his cause with a single, followed by a JD triple.  Juan Mirandi had the other RBI, while Nady added a triple, Nunez a double and Berroa had a hit.  That was pretty much it.  Gardner cooled off, going 0-2 with a walk.  With Jeter, A-Rod (no word on the hip yet), and Cano at the WBC, Posada on the mend, no Matsui, and no Swisher, well, the pickings were pretty sparse.

Kennedy had trouble throwing his curve for strikes today, giving up two of the three Braves runs in the first inning, and surrendered three hits (all doubles) and a walk, fanning none.   Giese allowed the other run and also two hits with a walk, but fanned three.  Brackman and Melancon were good, pitching an inning apiece, with only Melancon allowing a base runner on a hit.  Joba goes tomorrow, followed by Sabathia, Wang, Burnett, and Pettite Friday through Monday.  Pete Abe reports that Mariano will throw in the bullpen tomorrow.

Check out this clip of Cody Ransom flying.  (Hat tip to Pete Abe via Tyler Kepner.) Wow.

Lastly, Manny Ramirez caved and signed the two-year, $45 million deal the Dodgers offered him last week.  Poor guy, having to choke down that much cash with his crow.  I feel for him.

  1. Sorry to use this spot to do this, but I was wondering if your fantasy baseball idea ever got off the ground. If not would you be interested in joining my league? Email me if you are interested.
