Man was it hot. So hot, I literally got a sun burn in the shade. So hot, that I knew there’d be extra innings when I first got to the park.
Hughes absolutely stunk. I don’t even want to talk about him.
Loved how there was Send Swisher logos in any direction that you looked. They really are pushing hard for him to make the team, which is great. Must be really hard to watch though if your name is Brett Gardner. He deserves it every bit as much as Swisher does, if not more.
Speaking of Gardner, this game was a gift. That “inside-the-park” home run for Gardner was a routine fly ball to center that was booted. I’m not quite sure how they don’t call that an error. For all those detractors, Tex has finally heated up. Since June 18, he’s hitting .328/.394/.586 in 66 PA with 9 XBH and 15 RBI. This is just in the nick of time as it counters Cano’s poor performance during that stretch.
Lastly, I’m starting to grow bored with the pie in the face routine after walk offs. Every team is doing it this year, we did it last year, it’s time to let it go.
