I like to think the Yankees would have won today’s finale against the Angels even without Bourjos’ error, but who cares. The important thing is that we did win. We did break the losing streak. We did gain a game on the Red Sox. We did watch Mo get save #599 and inch closer to his big milestone.
It’s amazing what a win does for my personality. I’m actually smiling.
How cool was it to see both Montero and Romine make their major league catching debuts in the same game – especially after a night when Jorge was essentially pulled out of catching retirement. Talk about a passing of the torch(es).
I’m so happy I’m not even going to mention that Garcia gave up five runs in five innings or that Soriano wasn’t exactly lights out or that Tex’s sac fly was the best he could do. (I know, I know. I just did mention those little issues. Sorry.)
Better to focus on the fact that we head to Seattle in a positive frame of mind, even with all the injuries.
Goodbye, Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and good riddance.
