Thank you Brian Bruney, Bobby Abreu and Robinson Cano.
Bruney, for coming in during the 7th, with two outs and runners on first and second, and then allowing a single, walk, and another walk – pushing in two runs and permitting the Giants to take the lead in the game (5-4).
Cano, for grounding into a DP in the fifth with runners on first and third with one out. And, for whiffing with runners on first and second with one out in the seventh. And, for grounding out with the bases loaded in the eleventh – albeit with two outs.
Abreu, for grounding out in the sixth with runners on first and third – to end the inning. And, for whiffing to end the eighth with a runner on third and the Yankees down by a run. And, for bunting into a FC in the eleventh.
Know what may be the worst part of this series? A-Rod. He’s been awesome – and delivered another clutch ninth inning homer today. He’s been a terror at the plate in these first two games – and making a huge impression on the Giants and their fans.
I’m sure that Alex has been equally impressed with the park in San Fran…everyone is during this series.
If the Giants let Bonds go at the end of the year, they can use that money to go after A-Rod, if he opts out.
This weekend series is starting to shape up like the beginning of a lovefest between Alex, the Giants, and the city of San Francisco. This could all mean that the Giants will be in the A-Rod hunt this off-season…should there be one.
