Things sure can turn around quickly. At about 4:30 this afternoon, things couldn’t have looked more bleak. Here were the Yankees, their putative ace getting slapped around by the Twinkies, down 3-0, with the Sox only 2.5 back and Pedro standing by to pitch.
But now look where we are, just five hours later. Moose turned it around, the Yanks managed to come back in game one and then take the nightcap, the Sox lost, and the Bomber’s magic number dropped down to 1.
