I’m back. Boxes are gone. So is the dreaded packing paper. And I can actually walk around my new place in FL without tripping over something.
So….that means my head is clear for Yankees baseball, and last night’s contest against Toronto was a nail biter. Sonny Gray. Wow. Suddenly, he’s Cy Young? A shutout for eight innings, giving up only two hits to the Jays? “Pretty, pretty good,” as Larry David would say.
With both teams stymied on offense and into extra innings, it was Judge who broke through with a two-run homer, putting the Yanks on the board. Very exciting. Stanton’s solo shot gave us insurance. And the pen made the win possible.
The weather has been wrecking havoc on the Yankees’ schedule and today is another off-day, so I hope they’re ready for this weekend’s series against the Mets. It would be nice to pick up some games on the Red Sox and get back out in front.
