So said Mo at his post-game press conference today, referring to the crowd’s cheers when Swisher hit into a double play, ending the Yankees’ scoring threat and insuring that Mo would come in and attempt to break the saves record. In case anyone missed it, here’s the link to the presser.
How adorable is the youngest Mo Junior? The boy alternately mugged for the media, yawned, sneezed and gazed up adoringly at his famous father. I couldn’t take my eyes off him.
What a day. I was crying after the first out and then was flat out sobbing when it was all over and the hugging kicked in. Jorge looked the happiest I’ve seen him all season. Very classy job by the Twins to stand on the steps of the visitors’ dugout to applaud. I only wish Pettitte had been there, since he was around for the beginning of all this greatness. I was so glad everybody encouraged Mo to stand on that mound by himself to soak in the love. He deserves every drop of it.
As for the game itself, here’s what I wanted to do to AJ.
I’m not a violent person, but he was pitching to a bunch of kids for the most part. Just inexcusable. If Rothschild and company haven’t been able to fix him by now, they’re not going to and he should spend the postseason in Arkansas. End of story. Big thanks to our bullpen, who shouldn’t have had to bail him out so early in the game but did.
Now bring on those pesky stingrays.
