A lot of positive press today following the Big Unit’s performance yesterday against the Indians: 6 ip, 4 h, 9ks, no walks, no runs. Pretty damn encouraging unless you saw it happen in real time. In which case it was at times impressive, and at others a bit unnerving. Yes, he was getting strikeouts and looking, often, sharp. But there were a good number of sliders and fastballs that caught the fat of the plate. That these wound up, for the most part, in Yankee gloves was more a matter of luck than anything, and one wonders whether these pitches, when tossed to the likes of Manny and Papi (rather than Cleveland minor leaguers) will travel far and high. We’ll hope not.
