When I was around 10-years-old, I remember my best friend at time, Joey, saying to me “There’s nothing better to fall asleep to than a baseball game.”
And, the game today, to me at least, was one of those perfect set-ups for a ballgame induced nap – comfy couch, hot Sunday afternoon in August, and some pretty benign (for the most part) middle innings. Zzzzzzz……..and, then, just enough noise in the 9th to wake you up before the missing the end of the game. And, a happy ending with the Yankees holding on for the win.
Leiter, 102 pitches, 51 strikes and 51 balls. I’m still not sold – but, what choices do the Yankees have these days when guys like Chacon and Small are they best chances for a good pitched game?
Up next, the very annoying Ozzie Guillen. Call me crazy, but, I’m expecting at least one benching clearing brawl in this series. And, you know what? That’s not always a bad thing to happen to a team in a race for first.
