Just one more win until .500! Poor Unit – going tomorrow, day game after a night game where the Yanks scored fifteen. You know they’re going to only score 2 runs tomorrow, uh, I mean later today. That’s the way it always goes.
Kudos to the A’s fan for fingering the buffoon who threw the beer at Giambi (who now has his BA up to an even .200!) in the top of the 8th. Imagine having seats that great – right on the dugout – and doing something that stupid. Dude, just enjoy being that close to a major league baseball game. (Whoops, I forgot. Make that half-a-major-league-game. The way the A’s are playing these days is not exactly big league.) There really ought to be a way to make sure someone like this brew-tossing bozo never gets to go to a game again – - but, I know that’s not possible.
I wish I could bottle a film clip of that shot YES had in the 5th when Posada homered – the reaction of Jeter and A-Rod in the dugout. And, then I could show that to the next person who wants to make the claim that the relationship between Derek and Alex is chilled and forced. Yeah, right.
Lastly, I laughed out loud when David Justice said “Thank God!” to the mention of how quickly he was traded away from the Mets before ever playing for them. I really wish Kay and Kenny had asked to expand on that. But, they did the right thing by not allowing their partner to get himself in a bad spot.
