Time: 7:07 p.m.
TV: YES
Radio: WCBS-AM 880

Pregame concerns: Yankees are winless since I started the blog. ... Wells owns Pettitte (10-20, 1 HR, 5 RBI).

Prediction: Yankees lose 3-1. Pettitte pitches well, but the Yankees continue the trend and don't score for him.

7:24 p.m.: Here we go again. The Yankees are already down 1-0 after a Rios single and a Jeter throwing error, a steal of third, and a ground out. At least Michael Kay isn't calling the game.

7:31 p.m.: Giambi finally hits the ball to the left side of the infield to beat the shift for an infield single. He should've been doing this for 5 years now.

7:34 p.m.: Jason Giambi: track star. After getting the infield single, the Yankees send Giambi on a 3-2 count with Bobby Abreu at the plate. He strikes out swinging, Giambi is safe at second base, and takes third on an error on the shortstop.

9:05 p.m.: Giambi homered off Scott Downs earlier in the seventh inning to tie the game. The score is now 1-1.

9:18 p.m.: Hill steals home to give the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead. The Yankees are like the New York Giants: they are finding new ways to lose.

9:27 p.m.: Yankees get two men on, on two errors. However, Matsui flied to center for the first out. Runners at first and second, one out for Posada.

9:29 p.m.: Posada singles over the head of Hill to drive home Jeter. The score is now 2-2.

9:39 p.m.: This just in: Bobby Abreu sucks.

9:42 p.m.: After a leadoff double and sacrifice bunt, there is a runner at third and one out. Pettitte is coming out and Scott Proctor is coming in. Personally, I would've gone with Brian Bruney here. He has a better chance of getting a strikeout here.

9:47 p.m.: Proctor induces a fly ball to center field for a sacrifice fly. Of course Damon and his girl arm doesn't even attempt to throw home. 3-2 Blue Jays. I still think Bruney should've come in.

9:50 p.m.: I'm getting sick of YES showing commercials for the Roger Clemens Yankeeography and classic games. Clemens signing with the Yankees was a big deal three weeks ago. It isn't anymore. As I write this, Josh Phelps just struck out for the first out in the top of the ninth.

9:55 p.m.: Yankees go down 1-2-3 in the ninth. They have now lost five in a row, and are 0-for the blog. They managed to waste another good performance by Pettitte, who is now 3-4 and did not deserve this loss.

Game recap to come eventually.

9:18 PM,EST

The Blue Jays are up 2-1, after stealing home in the bottom of the 7th, off Pettitte. Hill stole home, which in my opinion, puts the final nail in this coffin called 2007.

Hey, thanks for reading.

I agree with you. They keep showing more and more signs of not caring and laziness.

Andy Pettitte pitched his ass off tonight, then along comes Mr. Scott Proctor to elminates all hope for Pettitte to pick up a win.

You could almost see the look of "I wish I was in Houston" on Pettitte's face.

Pettitte needs to sabotage this fool called Proctor. Maybe an ex-lax, maybe a slip & fall, whatever.... Poor Pettitte.
