• June 14th vs. The Pirates

    If only more games were like the one tonight for New York.

    The Yankees are now 31-8 in games where they score 4+ runs. This tells me that the Yankees bad record to date is all about the hitting, or lack thereof, this year.

    Tonight’s game was much like the big game of May 7th from Mussina – and, that game started the big winning streak for the Yanks. Can this game do the same? Fingers crossed!

    I meant to mention this a few games ago, but, better late than never. Every time that Tony Womack hits a fly ball, he should have do to 50 push-ups on the spot. Maybe that will get him out of the habit?

      “Every time that Tony Womack hits a fly ball, he should have do to 50 push-ups on the spot. ”

      He may run like Hayes, but he hits like shit.

      Moose has pitched a lot of great games for us. I know, that’s what he’s supposed to do… but many of the guys we sign don’t do what they’re supposed to do.

      everytime Moose pitches a 1-2-3 first inning….you can immediately tell that he is going to be dominant. when he is on…he is ON.

      Now- we have to win tonight….I won’t be happy if they lose tonight and win tomorrow….

      The most important thing is a) the win, and b) putting the game away, not allowing a clearly inferior team hang around 2, 3, or 4 runs behind. Moose, what can one say? with his stuff and the 90/91 fastball it’s not fair to NL hitters who don’t know him.

      A pleasing thing was the Post’s account of the crowd chanting “Tino” when Giambi made a mistake…beautiful. If Stein/Cashman/Torre played him 4 out 5 games, Tino would get his timing/rhythm back and hit 30 HR’s.

      (I won’t mention the defense.)

      Jason, maybe you’ll also be pleased that during roll call instead of chanting “Ja-son”, they were chanting “You Suck.”

      It’s not very virtuous of me but I am pleased, Jen. Your example at least lets the Yankee brass know that the fans understand that Giambi is playing over Tino for about 80 million non-baseball reasons. Buy him out and let him play in Oakland again…if you’re a bank you eventually must write off a non-performing asset.

      -the mob is fickle….5 minute standing ovation for the same Giambi after the walk off tonight
