• April 6th, Slowly I Turn, Step By Step……

    If the Yankees end up losing this thing by one game, I wonder how many will look back to that ugly top of the 9th on April 6th?

    It was just the 3rd game of the season – but, a terrible loss. Up 3-2, heading into the 9th, and then a leadoff walk (man, those things kill you every time), two singles, a big A-Rod error, a squib, and another single later, it’s 5 runs in and the game is over.

    Sure, there are probably a dozen games this season that the Yankees let get away where it cost them a win. But, for some reason, tonight, this one game is starting to stick out to me.

    Funny, many say that A-Rod should be the MVP because of his defense. Others say it should be Mo for his brilliance this season. Yet, this one crushing loss has their fingerprints all over it.

    Hopefully, in the next seven days, Mo, Alex, and the gang, will have enough chances and success that it will drive this game way back into the ancient history files.

      ooh i love this game. How bout this disaster on May 18? http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=250518112

      Yanks up 6-2 after three innings, in the sixth Posada makes an error on a strikeout, Sheffield throws the ball in the dugout, then the headline to the recap says it all: “Giambi K’s looking with bases loaded to end game.”

      Here’s hoping we’re as far from that team now as Baltimore is from who they were then. GO YANKS.

      SL, the past is forgotten. The team put themselves in an excellent position with their play over the last 2-3 weeks.

      While the Yankees must take care of business, if Toronto’s manager does not play Reed Johnson in every Boston game in the 6th slot I’ll know he’s taking it easy on the Sox. Johnson has abused Sox pitching this year.

      BTW: Reed Johnson against the Sox 2005:

      .387/.441/.871, 3 HR, 15 RBIs, 27 TB

      Yeah, David Ortiz has been perfect.

      come on? if we lose the division by one game- we are going to “point” to the third game of the season?

      thats a huge stretch..if this was the NFL…ok- but they had 161 other games to take care of business…1 game does not a season make
