Blast From The Past Gets Kick In The. . .

Note: I was two seconds from testing the censorship with the headline, but I figured you’d get my point.

         
This one may have not been a Beckham kick, but any win against a former
Yankee pitcher is one that should be exaggerated [for no other reason
than because it’s funny].. and despite the offense putting up 4 runs
on the board with 7 hits, the said “kick” in the game came from the
pitcher that went 7 innings, holding down the 1st place Royals [mind
blowing, yes] to 1 run and 3 measly hits: Andy Pettitte a.k.a.
Old Reliable a.k.a. the man you should give a contract with plenty of
zeros to without him even asking for one. I don’t care if he isn’t a
young stud anymore. The guy still looks good:

… [and gives you solid outings to boot.]

Follow the formula that’s sure to bring approximately 158 more W’s with Bruney & Mo afterward and you get this:

A hell of a let down for Royals’ fans [yeah, they have some]..

Ruining opposing team home openers–> love it.

Side Notes:


The other blast from the past, Nuke LaFarnsworth, opted to swallow
the tears this time and settle for payback by easily sitting down 3
Yankee hitters in order, all via the strikeout. We appreciate the love.

– Cano with 2 more hits today.. Did someone give this guy lighter fluid again?


DJ Swish drove in another one today. Though it may not make Nady/Matsui
happy, I say keep the guy with the hot bat in the lineup and screw the
original plans.

– Alex is apparently ahead of schedule with his rehab and is looking to come back possibly at the end of April [or at least before the original May 15th target date].. Though I’m looking forward to seeing his name in the lineup again [and not Ransom’s.. no offense..] his miraculous fast recovery just seems like it would be a definite backfire.. Reasons why I say this: 1.) It’s Alex Rodriguez. 2.) It’s Alex Rodriguez.

On Deck:
CC’s second shot at his first win in pinstripes against Horacio Ramirez
at 7:10 tomorrow night. Are these afternoon week games and
weekend
night games throwing anybody else off?

    I caught some of this game, and Pettitte did look very good. However, it’s the Royals. You are supposed to shut down this team, or even no-hit them 😉 This team is terrible, and will probably end up in the cellar again this season despite them being the “sleeper” pick of the media this year.

    We seem to be every team’s home opener, hence the weird start times. But I enjoyed this game. It actually took less than nine hours! Andy was great (Royals or no Royals – they still had bats in their hands) and I think the shadows in the batter’s box shut both teams down in the late innings. Let’s hope CC pulls it together tomorrow!

    Julia – I couldn’t understand it either. He was meant for the Yanks, he only wanted to be on the Yanks, and is still rock solid. I would’ve signed him right out of the gate.
    Greg – You have a point.. it is the Royals.. but Andy will be wiping the floor with batters this year, I guarantee it.
    Jane – Yeah, those shadows were ridiculous. Even the umpire was getting thrown off… at least I hope that was his excuse.. Looking forward to ruining the Rays home opener next, hehe.. =)
