Note: For those who actually care, here’s some news: I’m still breathing. For those who don’t, here’s some news: Flair 4 The Dramatic is back, so take a memo. For anyone wondering, doubt anyone would be but, this blogger has not made a post in nearly two months for one reason: hell [which some may refer to as “high school”]. One would think that toward the back end of the school year the work would cease, but apparently that’s when it only begins, go figure… Feel free to send hate mail to the Board of Education… make sure your complaint is at least 2 pages. Nonetheless, despite the absence, this blog will be making a comeback, as will the Yankees for the rest of the season [you can write that down].
And, on to today’s games. The Yanks and Mets played one in the Bronx and… where do the Mets play again? Forget it, it doesn’t matter. Anyways, it was the definition of Subway Series. Two games in two different stadiums, home to two New York rivals, in one day… baseball doesn’t get any better than that. The Yanks got shmacked in the first game… twice, in their own stadium, but the Yanks returned the favor in the second game, keeping that other New York team off the scoreboard, in theirrrr stadium.. wait for it… HA! I can’t say that much about the games because a) the first was an embarrassment, and as much as I would love to trash the Yankee arms responsible, I’m in a much better mood after the second game, and b) the second game spoke for itself. Muchas gracias to Sidney Ponson, Nuke, Veras and Igawa for redeeming the pride… I’m still in shock those four kept them scoreless as well. Praise for Bobby, who went 4-4, driving in 3 in the Yankee win, and MVP, who went 3-4, driving in 2 in the Yankee loss.
The Subway Series continues tommorrow afternoon as Pettitte Perfect takes the mound, coming off three back to back to back wins, in which he has given up only one earned run in those past three games combined… not bad. The Yanks regained some pride tonight after the afternoon fiasco, but they haven’t taken any from the Mets yet… let’s see if that changes.
– Jeet finally got his 400th career double tonight, which turned out to be a few feet from being his 200th career homer. The now 34 year old shortstop [happy belated b-day] has had some career. He’s been slowly heating up lately and it’d be nice to see him back in above .300 territory.
