It was shortly after eleven o'clock last night when I went to get the car. My cousin's wedding reception, which was held in a cool French bistro on 5th avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, made for a lovely evening. The car was a couple of blocks away and when I turned on the radio, the Yanks were comfortably ahead, 15-3 (Rodriguez, Jeter, Posada, and yes, that man Martinez, all homered, while Godzilla had four hits, including three doubles.) I'll leave the real recap to Cliff, who I assume watched it. Instead, here are some quick links to what's what in the Sunday papers:
Things might be going from bad to worse for Jason Giambi. Last night, a fan threw a beer on him. He also spoke to reporters and told them how "pissed" he was about being asked to go to the minors. This does not bode well for him. Giving the Boss an excuse to lay into him publicly is not wise.
According to the New York Post, Ruben Sierra, who will start a rehab assignment early this week, could be back with the team next weekend.
Joe Torre is eager to get Bernie Williams a start, and it may even be in center field. Pat Borzi has a feature on how Bernie is adjusting to life on the pine today in the Times.
Mike Mussina said he felt as good as he has all year on Friday night. Our labelmate Jon Weisman covered the Yankee right-hander when he pitched for Stanford. Today, he's reprinted an article he wrote about Moose back in 1988. Be sure to check it out.
Randy Johnson is on the hill later this afternoon as the Yanks go for the sweep.
