First off, I must say, as much as I am usually vehemently opposed to the merchandising money-grab “special occasion” alternate cap gimmick, I really, really, find myself liking the hats from today’s game. They sort of have a 1919 or 1921 feel to them.
Hey, Andy Pettitte, what can you say about him? Talk about a way to start a season, huh? Prior to this year, 1997, 2001 and 2007 were probably his best “10 starts” starts in a season – during his career. And, if 2010 doesn’t top those, it’s right up there with them. Let’s just hope his second half in 2010 is not like his second half in 2001 (where his ERA was 5.22).
Lastly, A-Rod’s slam. Chris Perez was having a pretty nice season, so far, up until that At Bat…boom.
Folks, that was a grand salami!
O.K., thunder and lightning here now…gotta power down…I’m outta here White.
