Bring on Taynon, CJ, and who is that warming up in the bullpen? Esteban Loaiza? Come on in, the water's fine. Welp, we Yankee fans need to laugh to keep from crying tonight. Take it on the chin, and suck it up. (And at this point, with the score 13, no 14, make that 15-0 in the fifth, getting some laughs out of this one is the best we can hope for.) It's a joyous night for Red Sox Nation and an utterly forgettable one for the Bombers. Let's turn the page, as they say. Hmmm. I think I'm out of cliches. Funny, how El Duque—Wednesday night's starter—always seems to find himself in big games for New York. Keep hope alive peoples. All is not lost. (Though the papers will have a b-a-double "L" with this one tomorrow.)
