YF was out hobnobbing with the glitterati last night (Lizzy Grubman, looking freshly bleached and thankfully without SUV at a certain West Village “gastropub”), and missed the action live, but we were nonetheless heartened to read of yet another home run by Ken Griffey, Jr.: his 11th of the season and career 492nd. Is there a more splendid swing in the game? We think not. It’s nice to see the erstwhile greatest player in the game returning to form. And at 34, he still has plenty of time to add to his resume.
Meanwhile, we had a chance to review some of the events in Yankeeland on YES Rewind. Derek’s 1-6 might easily have been 3-6. He just can’t find a break.
And interesting mound stories for both the Sox and Yanks tonight, with Lowe and Mussina pitching respectively. Is Moose really back on his game? Will Lowe find his? We shall see….
