From a fan perspective, there’s just about nothing cooler than a 6-run rally started with 2 outs and no one on. That was the game today, in my opinion.
The win today was very important because, now, tomorrow, the Yankees are playing with house money. It’s either take the split, and get out of Dodge in a hurry before anyone realizes that you were able to hold your own under very bad conditions, or, if by some freak thing, you get the win, then you’ve pulled a miracle and have actually won the series. All things considered, it’s win-win for New York.
Anyone know why Curt Schilling opted not to parade out to the bullpen, across the field in front of everyone, like he did on Thursday night? Were the red lights not on?
Tomorrow marks the start of Al Leiter The Yankee, Part Deux. How old is Al? Well, in 1989, the Yankees traded him to get Jesse Barfield. And, Barfield retired 13 years ago. Further, Jesse’s son, Josh, is not that far now from the big leagues himself. That’s old.
The Yankees rotation, as it stands now, should try and group together and “pitch” (no pun intended) an ad campaign for Geritol.
