I’d forgotten what a great smile he has and it was great to see the warm reception for him last night. If only he’d delivered on everybody’s optimism in the Yankees’ dreadful loss to the Rays. I actually predicted he’d go 0-for-6, given the pressure to produce and the fact that he was switching leagues and didn’t know the pitchers. But I was pretty close at 0-for-5. The killer was when he came up with the bases loaded and had chances to be the hero. Ugh.
CC was the real culprit though, and it’s becoming tiresome to sing the same song about him. He’s just bad. Every pitch looked like batting practice for awhile – long enough for the Rays to jump out to a 6-0 lead.
The Yanks staged an exciting comeback, and I kept watching till the bitter end. But it was to no avail.
I’ll probably miss the rest of the games this weekend and maybe it’s for the best. Hopefully they’ll play better without my verbal abuse.
