Taking the Pain Indoors: Yanks-Twins Gamer VIII

Game in progress – Melky hits into DP (and Sterling screams into my ear, "5 times!  5 times in the last 11 innings they’ve had a runner at 3rd and less than 2 outs and failed to score!!!").  This time it was 1st and 3rd and no outs.  Auspicious beginning, to be sure.  Yankees on the verge of moving from conteneder to spoiler – and the Twins are one of four AL teams in front of them.  Well at least the Mets bullpen imploded again today.

  • Two outs – then a walk, then a dinger given up to Adam Everet, who last hit a homerun when the Yankees scared other teams.

  • Just caught a glimpse of this game and noticed that the ad behind home plate is a PSA against drunk driving. Wonder if that distracted Ponson at all.

  • HAHAHA we used to make fun of the Stolichnaya Vodka ad behind Yankees Stadium whenever David Wells pitched.

  • I’m off to Vancouver in the morning for 10 days of not-work – first vacation in almost 3 years. May check-in periodically, esp if Yankees are playing absolutely terrible or absolutely great. If they continue to play semi-putrid, I’ll try to become Vancouver’s leading Summer Olympics expert. Enjoy the gamers and everything in between all!

  • under what circumstance would batting Crisp leadoff ever be justified? Fuck, why not just hit Tek leadoff?
