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.”
