Jeter’s eighth-inning, two-out, three-run, home-opener-salvaging, shot.
Honestly, though, wouldn’t you rather have pitching that wasn’t old, busted, overrated and/or just plain mediocre? I mean, rather than hoping Jeter comes through in the clutch every game? Hell, I’ll be the first to admit it: he may be a terrible shortstop, but Jeter is clutch. But if you had more than two effective pitchers it might take some pressure off him.
The Sox are trying a different strategy, and I personally think it’s overkill but whatever: they’re going with all badass pitching all the time, superb defense and…well, and Lowell 4-for-4.
There, I think I’ve effectively jinxed Wells’s first start tonight, which I will be at, cursing this comment.
SF — could you please tell Alex that this is not the way we talk at YFSF?
The first thing he says after a nice Yankee win is against the Yankees — tsk, tsk.
Hey Alex, don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have killer pitching 1-5. I’d love to have a bench. I’d love to have a backup catcher capable of making contact. But things aren’t all that bad, And I’m not the GM. I root for what I’ve got.
Anyhow, this is one heck of a great photo. A perfect composition. The ball flying off in the top corner. The subject matter, of course, don’t hurt!
“all badass pitching all the time”
Not sure about that yet, Alex. So far, so good, but Clement still has to prove he can do it for a full season, and Wells is coming off an injury.
Congrats on beating the Royals. Who wants a cookie?
(sweet picture though)
