So, the Yankees can win games out in L.A.? Cool…so…no excuses come October, right…?
Well, this about does it – now, with this win, the A.L. East is a done deal…there’s no way the Red Sox will be passing the Yankees – even if Boston does win their next five games in a row…which I doubt will happen.
Hey, how about Ian Kennedy? Things got a little tense there in the eighth…and, personally, I thought he was toast. But, Girardi stuck with him, and, Kennedy worked it out. General Joe knows more than I do, obviously.
But, what’s with Mo? Is it just me, or, has he been un-Rivera like on this West Coast swing? I hope it’s not an issue.
Lastly, yes, this is back-to-back good starts for A.J. Burnett! Well, here’s two words for you: Jose Molina. The Panda has caught both of these games for Burnett. That’s not going to happen in the post-season, will it?
