The Yanks roughed up the Twins to open the ST schedule today, 6-1. Wang looked like Wang. Everyone—seriously, everyone—hit. Damon and Giambi homered. Matsui and Melky made excellent defensive plays. Princeton’s own Ross Ohlendorf impressed Joe. The only weak link was Phil of the Future. Uberprospect Hughes had control problems—he walked 2, hit 1, and gave up a double in 1 and a third innings—and blamed the troubles on “overstriding” and suggested that, in a longer outing (he only went 33 pitches) he would have corrected. Anyway, no reason to panic. Also, in response to comments on his slick new physique, Damon told reporters: “you have to have your sexiness at all times.” We couldn’t agree more. Quotes courtesy PA.

  • Did Johnny find that new physique down in Orlando at a certain pharmacy?

  • (that last comment inspired by Steve Lombardi…)

  • Not going to dignify that.

  • How partisan, SF. For shame.

  • Partisan? Who does Lombardi root for, again?
    I didn’t even think of connecting any dots until I read Steve’s piece, though I share his trepidation.

  • Gah, I retract my comments. As YF says, not deserving dignity. I should never have made the original comment (and thinking critically, Lombardi never should have made his post, either).
    Stupid of me. Sorry.

  • SF, are you serious? Do you sincerely mean your last post? I hope you do. Please tell me you aren’t serious in dignifying Steve “I hope Arod dies” Lombardi’s asinine theory.

  • Yeah. Steve Lombardi posts some good stuff, but he is a cranky old man.

  • Yes, I am serious. I never should have gone there. Serious lapse on my part.

    SF March 2, 2007, 7:03 am
  • I really respect you for saying that SF.

  • Oddly, I came to the realization (prodded by YF, of course) that I was completely out of line in the middle of the night, in the midst of a sleep-deprived babyfeeding moment. Perhaps I should post more often nocturnally, I might be more lucid.

  • At this point, can I retract what I’ve written about Josh Beckett? I might have overstated my case when I called him the most overrated player in baseball. I have visions of him with a 3.30 ERA this season and Brad being merciless.

  • ok. since we’re retracting statements…..i’m officially off the runelvys bandwagon of one. he gave up 6 runs in a inning today. ouch.
