The Yankees offense was pretty bad today. Yet, their pitching – including Sidney Ponson (!) – was awesome this afternoon.
I called out Bobby Abreu this morning – and he gets the game-winner today, in extras, his first Yankees walk-off hit…and he gets the Gatorade Bucket too (with Cano and Cabrera playing the roles of Jim Burt and Harry Carson).
Wow. To paraphrase Alonzo Harris, “Hank Stein ain’t got nothin’ on me!”
So, the Yankees end up taking four of six from the Sox and Rays….
Maybe there’s some life in this team, after all?
Still, man, they have to hit better than what we’re seeing…because it’s been the Yankees pitching who has been doing the job in these wins. Moose, Joba, Pettitte and now Ponson – along with, of course, the great Mariano Rivera.
