What would the Yankees do without Lyle Overbay, otherwise known as Lyle Loverbay on Twitter. It was almost predestined that he would hit a grand slam when he came up with bases loaded. But an opposite field slam? Tremendous, and it put the Yanks up 8-0.
Cano’s homer got things started, but it was Overbay’s blast that made the game comfortable.
And Nova…..Wow…..Where did he come from all of a sudden? Now he goes eight innings without breaking a sweat and only seemed to run out of gas tonight after his 100th pitch. Whether it’s the threat of Pineda showing up in the Bronx and filling his slot or he’s just matured to the point of being really, really good, I don’t know, but I hope he keeps up the great work. He was fun to watch.
So were the clips on YES of Jeter’s outing in Scranton. He’s coming, unless something weird intervenes, and I’m getting excited.
There’s really not much to say about A-Rod’s supposed suspension that’s on the horizon. He’ll meet with MLB and not answer questions about PEDs and this thing will drag on or it won’t. No point in speculating now. Besides, Cruz made a dazzling play at third tonight, so maybe he’ll be fine there.
