Satisfaction: AF Style

Well, that was a satisfying game. Wang had a solid outing until he got tired — he was looking good. Lackey didn’t look to me like he had his best 9K/IP stuff, but he kept the bats at bay and worked himself out of jams. The Halos bullpen looked worthy of their reputation except for Posada’s home run, but Frankie moved on from that and took care of business.

This game was won and lost on defense, where the Angels have the edge. There was that pitchout to nail A-Rod, which looked nearly rehearsed. And then Figgins and Erstad (3rd and 1st) made vital, run-saving plays, while nothing need be said about Cano, Wang and A-Rod. Ok, well, something: nyahh nyahh nyahh.

And now we have a split, which is exactly what I expected from the first two games. Can’t wait to be in Yankee Stadium tomorrow night, that is if it doesn’t rain.

Can you imagine how nauseated Fox and ESPN will be if both the Yanks and the Sox get knocked off?

  • When you compare the two lineups, I ain’t counting nothing. Just dreaming.

  • on the contrary-i think those announcers are rooting against the yanks and Rsox. thats what totally sucks and living out in Vegas there are more Rsox and angels fans than yanks. i really wish i could listen to michael kay.

  • Tim McCarver rooting against the Yankees? hahahahahaha
    No, but, really, I didn’t mean so much the announcers as the network people. Way fewer people would watch Angels/Palehose than Yanks/RSox.

  • if you haven’t seen the city of champions best of boston sports dvd, you’re missing out on life. this is one of the best, if not best all around, dvd’s that i’ve seen as far as sports go. what other dvd do you know offers all the boston sports legends, talks with players/coaches, great music, game highlights from world series, etc.?
