Tough to find a rooting interest out there if you’re a YF. The Phillies, behind a brilliant outing from Cole Hammels, jumped out on the Brew Crew this afternoon. As a New Yorker, it’s hard to feel much but disdain for anything from Philly. The Brewers….we’re fine with them. In tonight’s action, it’s the Cubbies vs. the Dodgers. Baseball needs its curses, and we’re never going to root for anything from Chicago. That leaves LA, and our old buddy Joe T. Yeah, it’s LA, but no Yankee fan can genuinely root against Joe Torre AND Don Mattingly, especially with hometowner Manny doing his Manny thing (sorry Mr. Bay, we know Manny, and you’re no Manny.) James Loney just put a grand slam over the wall off an eratic Ryan Dempster. Go blue.
