And back and back and back again. Boy that was fun. Forget taught drama; we’ll take a crush job anytime.
-A night of titanic blasts: one into the black and then a loge shot. That’s a first for one game.
-Derek: 3 hits, 2 steals, 2 runs (now hitting .272). The climb continues.
-It’s going to be forgotten with all of those runs and errors, but the Sox going down on 6 pitches in the top of the fourth after the Yanks had just lit up Lowe for 3 runs in the third…that really didn’t help.
-Seemed like the Yankee announcing team was a little harsh on Manny for not running out a pop fly, even though he would have been safe on first if the ball had dropped and there was little hope of making second. So cut him a break. On the other hand….Pedro fraternizing with the Yanks before the game, and then the fans with the Sox down by 8….Decide for yourself.
-Finally: Rudy earned the privilege, Pataki is pushing it, but Cheney? In the House of Ruth? HEY DICK: WHERE’S OSAMA? OR THOSE WMD? OR NY’S FAIR SHARE OF HOMELAND DEFENSE FUNDING? You won’t find the answers in George’s box. Yankee Stadium is blue. Get it? BLUE.
