Same Old Song and Dance

You know, this is really starting to get kind of boring.

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)
