At the close of business today, the Yankees magic number is now 99. But, who’s counting?
I’ve been Unit-Teased a few times now this season. So, I’ll take tonight as a win and will hold, still, on the “Randy’s Back” parade. Still, it was good to see him be pissy on the mound and be able to back it up.
As far as Posada’s reaction to his HBP, I can live with that as well – even though the guys in the YES booth said that he over-reacted. To me, when Jason Johnson turned his back to Jorge, that was a mistake. It was a body-language-diss that only made things worse.
I have a bad feeling about Cliff Lee tomorrow. After six bad starts, he’s been pretty good in his last two. But, he’s a lefty too – so, maybe tomorrow will be a big day for A-Rod? In any event, Mussina needs to pitch well for the Yankees to win, on Thursday, in my opinion. I just have a feeling that the Yankees are only going to score something like four runs tomorrow. Just a hunch.
