Looks like getting back to Texas is agreeing with A-Rod.
It also looks like Shawn Chacon (based on his last four starts) may still have some of that magic left over from last year.
And, this is crazy, and I never thought I would ever type these words in 2006, but, here goes: I hope Torre doesn’t burn out Scott Proctor by using him so much in the last 4 weeks.
On a personal note, I ended up listening to most of the game tonight on the radio, driving back from the North Shore Animal League. It’s a long ride going from Long Island, through Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, back to New Jersey. But, it was worth it – as we now have a new member of the family:
Now, I just have to get our 9-year-old Terrier-Pit mix to warm up to him. So far, she’s not quite sure what to make of the situation.
But, if Torre can now learn that Proctor is better than Tanyon Sturtze, then all things are possible.
