A good win – despite Bobby Meacham’s attempts to put two of the Yankees marquee players on the disabled list. Someone needs to shut Meacham’s windmill act down before it’s too late.
Then again, when you get seven walks in a game, like the Yankees had in this one, and, when you hit 2 homers in the same game, like the Yankees did tonight, you’re usually going to win.
In fact, since 2000, there have only been 9 regular season games where the Yankees had “7+ BB AND 2+ HR” in a game and they lost. That’s nine times in just about nine years.
Hey, how about Mike Mussina? Moose sure is making it an interesting question in terms of what to do with him after this season – sign him or let him walk. Very interesting…indeed.
And, congrats to Richie Sexson. This evening, he became the only non-pitcher 80 inches or taller to ever come to bat in a Yankees uniform. Prior to this, Tony Clark was the tallest non-pitcher to bat for the Yankees…at 79 inches tall. The tallest Yankee, ever, to bat in a game? That would be Randy Johnson at 82 inches tall.
