I sort of kept one eye closed as I started reading about last night’s game, which I didn’t even see the beginning of as it was my second-to-last night on my trip. But when I saw the words “Lyle Overbay with key hit,” I got excited.
How great is Kuroda? I said it in the last post about the game he pitched and I’ll say it again about this one. He’s been flat-out brilliant, in this case going toe to toe with Kershaw. It stinks that he couldn’t earn the win, but what I love about the game was Girardi’s luck with the pinch hitters and the matchups. He should have played last night’s Powerball (I did and I only got one of the winning numbers – bummer). I’ve been high on Melky Mesa and he proved his value last night. I think he’s a kid who could turn into a nice player for us.
And we’ll need nice players since we didn’t make any moves by yesterday’s deadline. No point really. It’s time to just savor wins like last night’s and not worry about the rest. I’m so sick of reading about how A-Rod will appeal, won’t appeal, will settle with MLB, won’t settle, blah blah. Just do it already, people!
