First off, Ken Singleton should win the Emmy for “Outstanding Performance By A Baseball Announcer In A One Man Booth” for his performance this evening on YES. Yankees fans all over should be thankful that it wasn’t Michael Kay or Bobby Murcer who was left alone in the booth tonight.
Randy Johnson was not good tonight – locating, that is – but he was good enough to win. Ron Villone deserves another gold star for his hand in this game tonight as well.
Torre, in the post-game, on YES cracked me up tonight. In complimenting the guys from the pen, he gave credit to the starting staff as well – saying that (thanks to the starters) ‘We haven’t had to overuse the bullpen.’
Meanwhile, Scott Proctor’s right arm was recently mistaken for Sally Kirkland because it’s so used and abused.
Good game for Craig Wilson too – who seems to have a pretty big reach at first base, by the way, for a guy listed at six-two. Maybe it’s just the baggy uniform?
And, Damon, Posada, and Melky played well…….shoot, it was just a good team win. Feels like 1996 all over again.
