    I have to confess, I turned off the game last night after 8 innings.  

    My logic?  I needed to sleep.  And, I figured, if the Yankees somehow blew this one in the ninth, I would never sleep, at all, out of anger.  So, I went to bed thinking “I’m happy now.  In my mind, the Yankees are winning this one 2-1.  And, in the morning, I’ll wake up and either see that 2-1 score hold up, or, if I need to be pissed about them losing this game, at least I’ll be doing it on a full-night’s sleep.”

    And, then this morning, when I woke up, I turned on ESPN and saw what happened in the game after I turned it off.

    Boy, that was smart, close, or what?  Well, at least they won it in the end…or, did Hideki Okajima and Victor Martinez just blow it for the Red Sox? Heck, maybe Papelbon blew it? You tell me…

      It was a rather eventful game.

      The bad was not being able to hit Dice-K (except for A-Rod, and I don’t know how he got that ball inside over the wall in right), and Mariano…the stolen bases, yes, but moreso the fact that the Sox hit him hard and clean all inning long, except for the last out.

      The good was…Hughes pitching well in a key spot, the Yanks rallying from behind twice in the last inning, Cano hitting a couple of balls hard, Gardner finally getting a bunt down in the right spot in a tight spot, and, of all things, Miranda’s outstanding K zone judgement in a big PA vs. a lefty.

      …and Francona never went to Bard for the 3rd straight day, which everyone at SOSH was whining about.

      It takes two to tango.
