Please, let this be the last time we see Sidney Ponson pitch for the Yankees. Just release him – now or first thing on Sunday morning.
I have to wonder…if Zobrist and Gross don’t start playing hot potato with the baseball in the 7th, do the Yankees still win this game?
In any event, a win is a win…and, yet, seeing Boston win their second game against the Blue Jays today, after losing their first game, maybe it would have been better to see the Yankees not win this game? You know…ice the Sox out of first…make them sweat the White Sox, Twins and Jays some, etc.
Nah…ya’ gotta take the win…for the fans who took to time to watch this game. They deserved it.
Speaking of watching this game…watching Evan Longoria get that pinch-hit off Mo in the 9th…and considering the game he had this afternoon…I wonder….
…If you took a poll of all 30 big league G.M.’s, and asked them “Who would you rather have now as your third baseman, A-Rod or Longoria?,” I wonder which player would get picked more often…
Lastly, I’m digging Phil Coke…not sure what to make of his work, it being September and all…but, the kid seems like he cares out there. And, passion is good – especially on this team.
Oh, and, yeah, that Derek Jeter dude had a pretty good day today, huh?
