Never Boring!
Sunday, September 23, 2007
It's been a wild ride, these games this weekend! Friday's disappointing loss took 14 innings to culminate, the game Saturday afternoon lasted five hours and 10 innings - but ended much better than Friday's (i.e., they won) - and although they managed to win in just 9 innings today, the game still took almost 4 hours and there was plenty of drama to be had. When all was said and done the Yanks ended up exactly where they were on Thursday in terms of the division race (1 game out in the loss column!), but the magic number to clinch a playoff spot is down to just 2 and our presence has certainly been made apparent to the goons up in Boston.

Some potent notables from this weekend:
  • Melky had 3 hits and 5 RBI yesterday (including the game winner on Saturday!), tying his career best for single-game RBI
  • Joba is a god - 3 more strikeouts today. Bow down.
  • Little Jose Molina has turned out to be quite the catch (no pun intended! Wait I'm lying, totally pun intended). For a backup catcher a team could do much worse.
  • Moose looked pretty good out there today - he had one bad inning, but put up zeros in every other inning he pitched.
  • Rocket will not pitch until Tuesday, but he is allegedly healing up fine.
  • Red Sox fans are the most moronic fans in the country... after letting a 14.5 game lead dwindle to barely 1, they have suddenly become vocal about "not caring whether they win the division or the wildcard". Right... justify away, Red Sox Nation.
  • A-Rod pretty much sealed the deal on his MVP win, I believe. He tacked on another 4 RBI and came through with master clutchosity (patent pending on that word) on Friday and Saturday.
  • Abreu somehow managed to get caught stealing twice today.
  • The Yanks went through 8 pitchers on Friday, 10 yesterday, and 3 today. No rest for the weary!
  • If Posada plays 6 of the next 7 games, he will have played more games this season than he has since the 2000 season, and thank goodness - where would we be without him?
  • Today's win was the Yanks' 90th of the season. On July 1st they had won just 38. Hows that for a second-half comeback? Can we get a Comeback Team Of The Year award?

    Red Sox nation doesn't care about the division because they are just SOOOO happy to be in the playoffs. There was a time when it was actually feisable that tehy wouldn't make it, not even in the wild card (Thanks a lot Tigers), but ya know what, an old fashion Yankees Vs Sox ALCS doesn't sound too bad to me. But don't hold your breath. With Shilling pitching worse than Moose, and the (waste of) 100 million dollor man needing 3 extra days of rest (only to give up 5 runs in 6.1 innings....to the DEVIL RAYS), lets see if they can even get into the ALCS. Biggest reason why I want the Sox to blow it? I wanna see them spend 200 mil in the off season n not make it, just to prove money doesn't buy a pennent.
