• July 21st vs. The Orioles

    I missed the last two-thirds of this one. Decided to finally check out “Watchmen” this evening and that took me away from the game. (Man, “Kelly Leak” did a good job in this flick. On the whole, it was pretty interesting. Not the best movie that I’ve ever seen – but, it kept my attention for 160 minutes – and few films that long do…)

    In any event, getting back to the Yankees, just two comments for today:

    1. Who would have thought that, at the close of business on July 21st, Sergio Mitre would have as many wins as Chien-Ming Wang for the Yankees? And,

    2. The Yankees magic number to clinch the A.L. East crown is now 69…for those keeping count.

      It’s absuing federally-controlled substances. I suspect lysergic acid diethylamide. An electronic interevention might be necessary…

      Mitre has more wins than Ian Kennedy and Phil Hughes had all of last year.

      Here’s hoping that Boston goes 0-69 the rest of the way.

      The Watchmen movie was good BUT the so-called graphic novel was much better. The writer, Alan Moore was responsible for From Hell, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, V for Vendetta, and Watchmen in their original comic book form. Even though the adaptations are decent in some cases, Moore’s comics were something special for that genre.

      @ Rob A good call BUT even I have to admit that this year’s model of Phil Hughes is a different animal. He went from a struggling young starter to arguably a relief ace in the making. Funny that without any attendant hype, Mitre got the job done…..
