I suppose all it took was my asking politely but, whatever it was, I’ll take it. AJ Burnett (6.1 7 0 0 3 7) and two relievers shut out the Indians and the lineup took care of the rest, beating Cleveland 8-0. The Tigers and Angels showed nothing once again last night so the Yanks gained no ground on Tampa and Boston, respectively.
All in all, yesterday was a very happy 35th birthday: I had a nice steak dinner with my family and the Yankees won. It doesn’t get much better than that.
