Is it just me, or, does A-Rod’s “0 for 5″ with 5 LOB and 2 Ks standout in the middle of this boxscore today like a sore thumb?
Other than that, it was a near-picture-perfect win today. The guys in the line-up that you expect to do well (Damon, Jeter, Abreu, Giambi, and Melky) all came through nicely. Wright got 6 IP out of 95 pitches. Proctor and Mo shut the door.
And, the cherry on top today was the way that the Boston Red Sox lost their game.
Oh, by the way, for the record – if letting Bubba Crosby go means that Bernie Williams is the back-up CF, then, I hate the idea.
Melky Cabrera is supposed to be the 4th OF super-sub in 2007 – which means he’ll play LF, CF, and RF (giving everyone a break now and then, and, filling in when someone goes on the D.L.).
If that’s the plan, then why not use Melky as the back-up CF this year as well (now)?
