Two hours and twenty-six minutes. Great timing for a ballgame on a hot and muggy day like today.
Is it just me, or, could the A’s Justin Duchscherer pass as a younger version of Patrick Bauchau? He sort of looks like him to me. Then again, when I see Duchscherer I think he could also pass as a member of the primitive “Morg” from the Star Trek episode “Spock’s Brain.”
Anywho, back to baseball, it was just about a month ago that the duo of Giambi & Pettitte carried the Yankees to a win – as was the case in this game. Hey, whatever happened to that Mitchell Report thing, anyway?
This one was a pretty big win for the Yankees. If the Angels can beat the Red Sox later today, this would mean that the Yankees would be 2 games back in the loss column in the Wildcard chase. All things considered, that’s an interesting spot to be in now…
…but, again, as always…if the Yankees don’t start hitting (and they only scored two today), it’s not going to matter.
