    Clams on the half shell and roller-skates.
    These are good times.

    This time last week, this is the type of game that the Yankees would have lost. However, instead of an ugly loss, we saw an ugly win. No matter, there are no style points in baseball. A win, baby, is a win, albeit of the Angelina Jolie class or something that looks like an orangutan’s butt after he just guzzled a gallon of caster oil.

    Today, the pen was mightier than the sword. And, that helped a lot.

    .500, here we come.

    On a side note, I was surprised to see that Russ Johnson was added to the team when F’ed-Rod went down. In 2002, Johnson missed two months due to anxiety and depression. I hope he’s over that now. New York can be a tough place to play. Then again, if you’ve seen the Columbus roster, there’s not many other options to pick from down there. It’s not a basket full of prizes.

      Also excellent to see Matsui-san break out of his slump in the last 2 games. Granted Moyer is not overpowering, but hits are hits.

      Seeing Matsui coming around, I could imagine Torre saying to Giradi, like in that scene from MAJOR LEAGUE, “Things are comin’ together Joe. They’re comin’ together.”
