Some might want to talk about the Yankees lack of sleep for this game. Others might want to cite the weather conditions. Or, perhaps some might want to talk about the homeplate umpire’s strike zone. But, the fact of the matter is, bottom line, it was just not the Yankees day today – and it was a much better day to be a Kansas City Royal.
File this one under: Sometimes You Get the Bear, Sometimes the Bear Gets You.
You just hope the Yankees can shake it off and have a better showing tomorrow.
I had a chance to listen to some of this game on X-M Radio during the drive home this evening. (Thank you I-287 traffic.) Since it was a Royals’ home game, X-M was carrying the Kansas City broadcast with Denny Matthews and Bob Davis.
Man, I could just picture those two sitting on a front porch, somewhere, in rocking chairs, wearing short-sleeve dress shirts and slacks, with suspenders – along with a pitcher of lemonade at their side – doing the broadcast of the game. It was as if Harry Doyle and Archie Long got a gig to broadcast a game. It’s sooooooo much different than listening to John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman.
I’m not sure if it’s better or worse – but, for sure, it’s different.
