I had to swipe the above photo off LoHud’s blog just because it reminded me of CC’s size, which was pretty much all I thought about while I watched him pitch today. He loomed large against the Brewers, didn’t he? I actually said out loud, staring at his gut, “How does he move around with that thing?”
He moves just fine. Better than fine. He dominated today with all those strikeouts and, except for Braun, the Brewers looked helpless against him.
Congrats to Tex on the 300 homers. Congrats to Boone Logan for getting lefties out these days. Congrats to the Yankees for the win (especially given that we were missing some regulars). Congrats to the team for the series sweep. Congrats to me for suffering through the Brewers’ TV feed, which is all we got here in good old Santa Barbara, CA. And congrats to me again for managing to work and watch at the same time.
And now it’s on to CitiField tomorrow night. Given how many runs the Mets have scored lately, this series could be fun. Or not. We’ll see.
