I missed the Yankees game today. We took the kids down to Trenton to see the Thunder play. I was shocked to see Mike Kinkade playing third for the Thunder. Just ten days ago, I saw him playing third for the Somerset Patriots. I had no idea that he was picked up by Trenton on August 7th. That sort of tells you something about the depth of position players that the Yankees have in the minors – or, rather, the lack thereof. I did get to see Jeff Marquez take the mound for the Thunder today:
I see what the scouts mean about him. His ball has a lot of movement – even in his warm-up tosses, it was dancing.
They announced the Giambi homer during the game at Trenton. And, they gave an update when the score hit 4-0. I saw Pettitte pitching in the seventh while we were in the gift shop at Waterfront Park. All told, I knew that things were looking good for the Yanks today. But, when I got home and saw that the Red Sox lost today, well, let’s just say that it’s a Snoopy Dance kinda of day in Yankeeland today. Would you agree?
