Sure, Derek Jeter deserves the accolades for reaching the 3K mark, but it’s hard to stomach that he essentially beat the Rays Saturday with a 5-for-5 performance and the game-winning hit.
If only Kelly Sloppach’s ninth-inning flyout went another two feet. Anyone else see Mariano Rivera hang his head after contact?
And where was the pinch-hitter for Justin Ruggiano? It probably wouldn’t have mattered, but Sam Fuld sure seemed like a slightly better option there.
Longball from Matt Joyce and B.J. Upton, but collars for Evan Longoria and Casey Kotchman. Five hits and four runs and plenty of lost opportunities.
So David Price marches into the All-Star break with a 3.70 ERA. Nice.
