You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part
The Yankees are back in Baltimore for a set to finish out the season, facing Jon Leicester tonight to introduce the last of the reggalar action. Mike Mussina gets the rock for the Bombers. If he continues to hurl the way he has in his last three starts, he will have made a strong case to be one of the starters in the Post, especially considering Rocket’s game leg. Pettitte and Igawa will also see a turn on the bump this weekend.
The Red Sox magic number is 2 as they send Daisuke against Kevin Slowey and the TCTs at Fenway. Johnny Damon reminded reporters that the Yankees still have a “mathematical chance” at the division. It is a funny image that is conjured when one imagines Damon doing math. We kid because we love. Maybe the wc/division in the Beast will be settled tonight, maybe not. It seems a rather tranquil time for the AL, especially considering that the Phillies, the Mets, the Cubbies, the Beermakers, the Snakes, the Pods, and the Rox all yet do not know their post-season fate.
Oh baby dont it feel like heaven right now? Lineups, comments follow.
