Nice “numbers” night in the Bronx. It’s game #100 (on the season for the Yanks). And, with this win, New York is now 10 games over .500 for the first time this season.
It was also nice to see how this game was won – in terms of who made contributions for New York. The Yankees pitching was on point this evening…Rasner, Robertson, Veras, Farnsworth…and even Mr. “I pitch now about once every ten days”…aka Dan Giese.
And, it was even nicer to see some guys who were not contributing earlier in the season – but, who have come on in the last few weeks – drive in key runs…like Jeter, Abreu and Cano.
The Yankees should be the talk of the town tomorrow…pitching and hitting well, reaching new heights (in terms of their record) this season, winning 9 games now in a row at home, moving in on the leaders in the A.L. East…yet, it’s not going to happen. Why?
Did you see what happened in Queens this evening? Holy shades of last September, Batman! Think Willie Randolph cracked any smiles this evening over this one?
Hey, maybe I’m wrong on this…and maybe the media will give the Yankees the props that they deserve tomorrow…in the papers, on the radio, and on the tube…
Well, either way, as Yankees fans, we can deal with it…it’s all good. Hey, bring on the dancin’ girls!
I think the lady in green, in the back, must be a Pavano. She quit way before the dance was over.
