Yankees Swept by Blue Jays

Those words are sung by Frank Sinatra on audio at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.


In a series that featured the top two offences in the majors, New York mustered only one run and went scoreless over the final 26 innings. They lost 2-0 on Sunday.

Sunday’s afternoon game is also highly coveted as the team is giving away Bell, Moseby & Barfield Bobbleheads on “Turn Back the Dial to 1985” day.

Along with newcomer Mark Lowe, Bo Schultz, Liam Hendriks and Brett Cecil, the new look Blue Jay bullpen has been lights-out. The umpires granted Teixeira a homerun on that play. In another 15 of those losses, they’ve had the tying run at the plate in the ninth inning or later. Other key players for Toronto include former Oakland Athletic Josh Donaldson with 31 homers, and Chris Colabello, who’s hitting.

The Blue Jays did something to the Yankees the past two games that has not happened since May of 1999 against the Anaheim Angels. His debut was the Jays’ most expensive home game of the season.

This time last week we were applauding the moves the Toronto Blue Jays made before the Major League Baseball trade deadline. Yes, the Yankees are older.

If you don’t know you’re doing something wrong, then you may not be.

While Estrada only allowed singles to right fielder Carlos Beltran in the second, shortstop Didi Gregorius in the third and third baseman Chase Headley in the seventh, Toronto’s powerful offense struck with two long swings off right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (8-5).

Pittsburgh slugger Kang Jung-ho’s three-run homer capped a nine-run seventh inning, while Andrew McCutchen homered and drove in four runs as the Pirates downed the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-6 to sweep the three-game series.

With Tulowitzki in the starting lineup, Toronto is 11-0.

Say what you will about Yankees skipper Joe Girardi, he had the best of a worst situation. The last team in the division the Boston Red Sox played to the second best record over the past ten games winning six. But the rest of the rotation has been nearly as good, allowing two runs or fewer in six of their last eight games.

The bats were clearly asleep, in the series against Toronto. After a three-game sweep of the New York Yankees over the weekend, they’re now 61-52 and only 1 1/2 games out of first in the AL East. That’s a batting average of.

Just two weeks ago, the Yankees appeared to be gearing up to return to the postseason with the A.L. East divisional banner in tow. In the four previous games, before the Toronto series, the Yankees scored a combined 28 runs, giving up only 9.

The Yankees lost in a surprising, wholly alien fashion this weekend.

Soon after acquiring Tulowitzki came David Price.

Many Yankees fans are letting it be known that the team is okay.

Believe it or not, there are some reasons precluding me (and should prohibit you) from panic.

Every season is its own year, and the young players of today can help lead teams. Take their recent series in Seattle, where there were at least as many Blue Jays’ jerseys in the stands, if not more, than the Mariners.


The Toronto Blue Jays may not be on pace to set records this season, but the offense they’ve put together is still worth your undivided attention. Cashman has been the General Manager since 1998.
