This game was all about two words: Andy Pettitte.
Andy was dandy, and then some, and the Yankees win. It’s so simple when your starter controls the game, eh? And, what’s wrong with Chamberlain? Only one whiff in his inning of work? (Just kidding.)
The Yankees offense still concerns me. Robertson is not that good this year. And, I thought the Yankees got lucky on the “doubles” by A-Rod and Phillips – as Camron Maybin did not play them well. (Great name for a player, by the way, “Camron Maybin” – it’s not up there with “Craven Morehead,” but, it’s got that fancy ring to it. And, despite last night, this kid is going to be a very good player. I’ve been reading about him in Baseball America since he’s been in High School.)
And, is it just me, or, does Giambi start pounding multiple-homer games every time Torre bats him 7th or lower in the line-up?
Anywho, maybe Clemens (today) and Wang (tomorrow) can match Pettitte from this game? Three in a row like this one would be sweet – and great for the team.
