Fourth beauty in a row for Mussina. He should be 4-0 now instead of 2-1. Gee, is it his walk year this season? (Yes, I know the team has an option, but, they’re not going to pick it up.)
Considering that Schilling goes for the Sox tonight, and how he’s been pitching this year, this is a good win – it prevents the Yankees from falling four back in the loss column.
Do you know that Cano now has 54 PA this season (so far) and has not walked once? Yes, you don’t walk off the Island. But, dude, you’re here now. Take some pitches.
Do you also know that Andy Phillips now has whiffed in 19 of his 57 career big league At Bats (so far)? I think this is why Carlos Pena was signed.
Last concern from today: The Giambi HBP in the 7th. It was enough to drive him out of a 3-1 game with another AB coming. The way he’s been driving the ball, you hate to see something like this happen.
Now it’s nine games in a row at home to close out the month. This is the time to make a move. Keep your fingers crossed.
