Wonder what kind of comedy we'll see out of Carl Pavano and the Yanks tonight...
A. Rodriguez 3B
I. Rodriguez C
Traber was sent down to make room for Glass-Ass.
no .... you are all alone
Damon probably shouldn't have even tried for home. He made it, but they had him beat.
c'mon Carl, get Hot!
I went to the kitchen to clean up after dinner because I didn't want to hear them talk about Pavano's buttocks again, and come back to find the Yanks losing.
And another weird and bizarre play.
will try to come up with some new ones after bfast..
now Abreu with the phantom whiff...?
And I can't believe we're talking about leftovers during a game. :-P
Not a verb you normally hear during the scoreboard....
Down to his final out, he got to see Jason launch one before he was off to beddy-bye.
Oh, and on the strength of our performance in the first inning, he predicted that we'll win this one.
"Bottom third: I understand that Melky Cabrera wants to prove to the Yankees that he's willing to play hard -- and you can't deny he's run out every ball and play good, hustle defense -- but he was just caught stealing second. Last night he was caught stealing third in tie game in the bottom of the ninth. Sunday he was thrown out foolishly trying to stretch a single into a double. Cabrera needs to show he's willing to hustle, but right now the greater concern might be whether or not he's a bonehead."
Jennings said on Sunday that they lectured him on the difference between hustle and bad baserunning. He seems immune to coaching.
He must be in agony these days.
Imagine going from starting centerfielder of the NY Yankees for multiple seasons to suddenly wondering whether you have a future in the sport.
I sure hope he has close friends, loved ones and coaches to help shepherd him through.
Oh wait...this is his last year of the contract. Man, time sure flies....it almost feels like he was never a Yankee.
So now it's only $2 mil per start for Carl.
Don't look now, but we seem to be on a real tear.
That's two in a row!
With a little luck, we'll be threatening Oakland's 20-game streak soon and with it, the division title!
Never say die.
ps--if we could sweep the Sox, even take 5 of 6, I'd be perfectly happy not to make the postseason....
