Yankees Magic Number is "10"

Nope, not that magic number. Think of how many relievers New York needed. Or what inning Melky Cabrera decided to end it.

In what was one of the ugliest pitched games in franchise history, here's a quick recap:

  • Another extra inning affair involving the Blue Jays.
  • A walk-off single for Leche.
  • Phil Hughes might've gone six strong had it not been for 20 bloop singles falling in.
  • Franchise-record 10 Yankees relievers needed to "secure" a 12-11 circus of a ballgame.
  • Edwar Ramirez either strikes out the side or cries in a corner.
  • Alex Rodriguez owns the 9th inning... or any other inning where a crucial RBI is to be had.
  • Michael Kay likes to talk about Michael Kay... a lot. Especially if Michael Kay has an upcoming theatrical appearance at an unknown middle school gymnasium.
  • Robinson Cano does not like Doug Mienkiewicz hogging all the infield pop-ups.
  • Ross Ohlendorf has nasty stuff.

    - Magic number is now just 3
