I Was Hoping for 100 Runs

100-cake2

But I’ll gladly take the 14 the Yankees scored tonight. What a weird, sloppy game by the Sox. Not that the Yanks didn’t commit their share of blunders. Shane Greene, for example, made an inauspicious major league debut out of the bullpen.

The hit parade was fun though and it diminished the aftertaste of last night’s pine tar issue and Lackay’s shutdown of the offense. So did CC’s stellar outing and Mike Carp’s, um, good sportsmanship. Oh, and hearing David Cone, Al Leiter and Michael Kay discuss the story lines and characters of “General Hospital” was priceless.

The downside was the interminable length of the game. Baseball should not last four hours unless there are extra innings involved. I found myself muttering, “Just let this be over already.”

    What a weird series this was. All the games were lopsided. I’m just happy with winning 2 of 3 and not having pine tar a focus for the day and now I can look forward to hearing the yes announcers again with no blackout

    I don’t recall ever seeing a Yankees – Red Sox game that wasn’t at least 30 – 60 minutes longer than a game played against any other team. It was weird that Boston’s defense was as bad last night as NY’s was the night before. Our boys scored plenty of runs so there was no worry. C.C. did what he needed to do and it was nice to see Robertson back. And, once again, the instant replay worked in our favor. Glad we’re done with Boston for a while now and that they boys are coming home for a decent homestand. GO YANKEES!!!

    Yes, glad the series and the road trip is over, but I’m never comfortable facing the Angels and not when Pujols is on fire. Yikes.
