Working the starting pitcher out of the game early, bullpen getting critical outs to hold a slim lead, and a late inning surge to put the game out of reach. What else is new?
I can't say I blame the Blue Jays for folding the tents after the 8th inning, but you could at least pretend you're a bunch of professional baseball players and try to make the game interesting by getting a fews outs in the 9th. Us Yankee fans have almost forgotten what a close game feels like.
And by the way, in case you're keeping score at home, that's now 7 different Yankees who have 20+ HRs and 70+ RBIs. (Yawn)
