In Case You Missed It

Jeter’s eighth-inning, two-out, three-run, home-opener-salvaging, shot.
Pretty sweet.

  • 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)
