    Seeing the results from this game leaves me with two “shames.”

    Man, it was a shame that the Yankees let Oliver Perez beat them on Friday – because, now, we know they could have swept the Mets.

    And, man, it’s a shame this game was on ESPN – because this contest would make for an excellent addition to Yankees Classics. I would watch this one again – no problem. Worm Killer was awesome – and Wang’s whiff of Reyes in the 8th, where Jose screwed himself into the ground on one swing at a change, standalone, makes this game one that is worth seeing again.

    How about that blast by A-Rod? (I hope to have some interesting A-Rod comment up later today.)

    Beware the Rockies now – they’re next – and they’ve been playing good ball of late (or, so I’ve been told).

      A-Rod, I’d like to introduce you to Coors Field. Please be gentle.

      espn had a great shot of A-Rod’s face strolling to the plate in the first inning, and man did he look locked in. This is not the same guy we’ve seen the last three years, he knows how good he is and is showing the rest of us. And on the other side, they cut to about 10 shots of him joking around with his teammates and having fun. So he might be blowing off the media, but it doesn’t seem to be an attitude that has carried over to his teammates.

      I don’t even want to think about him leaving.

      You’re right about Arod’s locked in look. Reminds me of Tiger when that focused with that much talent compared to everyone else.

      Not to nitpick but would someone explain Capt. Hook’s move with two out and noone on. Either don’t bring him out for the ninth or, based on the “one man at a time policy” he always uses, pull him after the first baserunner. Or let him finish. Did you notice Arod shaking his
      head saying “No, No” as Joe walked out to get him.Wang is a warrior.
