Nostalgia: Yanks-Braves Gamer I

Pitching has been superb. Girardi has done another excellent juggling act with a bullpen that lost 3 of its top 4 arms. The Yanks still haven’t won a game unless they’ve hit a HR, but they’ve hit enough of those to earn them a share of the division lead and best record in the AL.

Robertson due back by the weekend and I’ve got excellent tickets behind the dugout at Rays-Nats next Tuesday in DC. I was hoping it might be Strasburg but it looks like I get Wang instead. Blast from the past! Looking forward to seeing the Nats field and to watching that team up close – they bring the excitement…
