Looks like I called it yesterday.
Funny thing happened tonight. Well, I say funny because it’s the most polite thing I can think of now. At 9 pm EST, I tuned away from the game to watch the second half of HBO’s Empire Falls (since I watched the first half last night and wanted to see how it ended.) At that point, the score was 2-2 in the 2nd. When I got back to the game at 10:30, it was in the 7th and the Yankees were down 6-2 (with Obi Wang on the mound). And, I thought to myself “Why did I change the channel to Empire Falls when I could have just stayed on ESPN and seen the Empire Fall?
Actually, I think I can sum up the difference in the Yankees and the Red Sox over the last couple of years in two names: Jason Giambi and David Ortiz. Yankees have the former and the Sox have the latter. And, it’s worse that New York paid gazillions for Jason and Boston found David on the scrap heap. Go figure.
And, if that’s not bad enough, seeing this man (below) pitch into the 9th inning to get the “W” tonight is another kick in the pants.
I wonder how the Yankees will rebound (if they do) from this series?
