We’re going to be out for much of the day and evening, so we thought we’d get you started early on tonight’s game thread. We’ll say this, it seems like a good night to be out on the town; Toronto will be throwing ace Doc Halladay, one of (if not the) best pitchers in the league at the Yanks, who always, understandably, have trouble against him. To compound the offensive problems, as if that were necessary, Kelly Stinnett will be starting behind home plate. Worse still, he will be catching Jaret Wright. So things don’t auger well, but the funny thing about baseball is that sometimes things just work out exactly how they’re not supposed to. We hope that’s what happens tonight. Consider this your place for comment on all the action.
But before I’m off, let me recommend Alan Schwarz’s terrific piece on Greg Maddux in today’s NYT. And let me put up this abbreviated Jeter Meter:
Not long before we start hearing those MVP chants.
