And I thought maybe the Yankees would have a letdown after the big Subway Series. Silly me. Instead, they pounded the Indians on the first day of HOPE Week and it was so relaxing. Good pitching, good hitting and good defense – that’s how you win ballgames – and the Yankees did it all.
I wonder if Cano is practicing for the Home Run Derby coming up. His swing sure looked ready. And Swisher had an active night both at the plate and in the field. But the surprise was Wise, and I credit Cashman for picking him up. I knew he had a great glove, but who knew he could handle the bat?
I can’t say enough about Kuroda and the job he did. Just an excellent all-around effort by the boys. I realize that the Indians aren’t exactly a top-tier team, but so what. Winning by a bunch of runs is fun.
