First, there’s a rain delay in Chicago because there’s a threat of rain. Now, there’s a rain delay because it’s actually raining. And I’m not waiting up to see if they’ll resume play because they should have started the game on time to begin with!
Well, and because I’m really tired from traveling and changing time zones and all of that.
Besides, the Yankees seem to have this one well in hand.
How great was Hughes? I’ve been knocking him for weeks (okay, months), but he really turned it up a notch tonight, throwing quality strikes with velocity and keeping his pitch count down and getting swings and misses. Maybe Cashman was right and we didn’t need another starter after all.
And Tex. Wow. Homers from both sides – the most ever. I was sure Mickey Mantle would have had more, but apparently not.
So I’m going to bed figuring the Yankees won this, hoping the Red Sox lost their game and dreaming that we’re back in first place where we belong.
