No cursing during this Janer today, although when the Yankees scored early I had to remind myself not to get too excited. But they kept scoring – yay for consistency! – and Hughes held the O’s in check and all was well in Yankeeville.
I guess the only newsworthy items were the return of Joba and the arrival of McGehee.
Whoever photo-shopped McGehee’s Pirates pic forgot to erase the beard, but whatever. He’s ours and he figured into today’s win, even if it was in a relatively minor way.
Girardi was smart to use Joba in a no-pressure situation. If only he hadn’t given up a homer and those singles. Oh well. He needs to get used to major league hitters again. I’m sure he was disappointed in his performance though.
So it’s on to the Mariners this weekend. Seems like we played them yesterday, but I really hope the results are better this time around – with no hit batsmen.
