Really, Yankees?

Tonight’s game was supposed to take my mind off the fact that Santa Barbara County has a wildfire burning tonight – 500 acres with a high-wind warning. It’s not near us, but it’s scary to look out the window and see a sky that’s gray because of smoke, not clouds. I was hoping the opener of Yankees-Mets would be a diversion.

Instead, it was an exercise in frustration. Hughes was good (either that or the Mets’ offense isn’t), but I kept thinking of how he’s prone to the home run ball, and sure enough David Wright was evidence. From then on, you would have thought the Yankees were facing Cliff Lee in his prime. They were punch-less. Gardner made two terrific catches, but other than that? Bleh.

What’s worse, tomorrow night they have to face the Mets’ phenom, Matt Harvey. More bleh.

    I agree…blah, blah, blah.

    I’m beginning to think it’s me though.
    When there is a game that I can view (don’t get YES) we lose.
    So I may just record the game and watch it in play back.
    I may save the Yankees this way.

    It’s not your fault, Peg. You should watch whenever you can and let the Yankees take care of themselves. They’re big boys. :)

    Although an unfortunate loss (and The Red Sox won so we’re now in 2nd place) it was a pretty exciting game to watch. Hughes did well and yes, Gardner was fabulous. Let’s hope for a split at Citifield and then we have to take two at home. Kuroda is pitching tonight so as long as the bats wake up a little, I think we’ve got a good shot. GO YANKEES!!!

    My idea of exciting is when the Yankees win 10-0, Diane. I’m such a chicken.
