It’s 17-7 in the 7th and I’m done for the night. I’m hoping we’ll end up scoring 20, but I’ll settle for a win – especially given AJ’s dismal performance.
Is there anyone who faults Girardi for pulling him in the 5th? As Michael Kay said, it’s the manager’s job to get the team a win, not the pitcher a win. It just stinks that the Yankees finally gave AJ some real run support and he couldn’t hold it together. He was seriously mad when he stormed into the dugout. He ripped off his shirt like guys do in the movies before they’re about to punch someone or something.
Yes, the offense was fabulous but AJ is the story of the night. Now do we wish we’d traded for a #2 pitcher?
It was fun seeing Bruney again. Maybe he did get robbed on that call at first base, but his ejection reminded me of the episode when he had words with K-Rod. Good, good times.
I’m almost afraid to turn off the TV. I feel a brawl coming on – or at least a few plunkings of Yankees batters. I hope I’m wrong and this blowout ends peacefully. It’s not our fault that the White Sox are awful this year.
