Not Dead Yet

The Yankees looked dead for most of tonight’s Game 2 against the Blue Jays, much the same way they looked dead the night before. But – lo and behold – the combo of Hughes and Huff (the “H” boys) held the Jays to only three runs, so the deficit wasn’t insurmountable….barely. The Yanks fought back with four runs of their own, and Mo, despite a shaky ninth that nearly ruined my dinner, got the save after Robertson was given a quick hook in the eighth.

All I want at this point is for them to put up a good fight, and they did.

What’s sad is that yet another team is about to host their farewell ceremony for Mo, with various reporters speculating about what Toronto will give him for a going away gift tomorrow. The whole thing is a little weird and as much as he seems to be enjoying it, it has to be exhausting. In any case, he’s saying goodbye and I’m trying not to notice.

    Some famous orator once said “it ain’t over till its over” and it still isn’t although it is close but the glimmer remains regardless of the fact that it appears impossible but as long as possibilities remain there is a chance that the nearly impossible can happen and while unlikely if you believe in numbers they still add up to possibilities and that being said the sun has come out today here in Rhode Island where I am vacationing!

    I never thought they’d come back that late in the game…and playing “small ball”. I got kind of scared that they needed to trust Mariano for 4 outs again…but what a “relief”! LOL. Again, the star of the show was Girardi…doing everything he can to get the most out of this damaged and exhausted team. I have to tell everyone that Sports Illustrated’s new issue has an amazing article about Mariano – the cover says “Exit Sandman” – I got a little teary-eyed when I heard that, but the article is worth reading. Hope the boys keep going…GO YANKEES!!!

    Enjoy Rhode Island, John, and those Red Sox fans. They must be giving it to you this year.

    There have been a few really great articles about Mo’s farewell, Diane, including one by Ian O’Connor at They all make me proud….and sad.
