He seems to get better with age. He’s certainly more robust.
Who cares if he has three chins? Not me. He pitched like a dream tonight against the Jays – just the start we haven’t been able to get out of anyone except CC. He ran out of gas at the end there, but did anyone seriously expect him to last as long as he did? No dead arm on his bod. He was terrific, mostly.
And how about that offense from Tex, Grandy and Martin, in particular? Andruw Jones didn’t exactly impress in his at bats, but he made a really nice catch in left and gave Gardner a night to contemplate – I don’t know – the art of the bunt? I’d like to be able to say, “Wow. How great was Jeter,” but it’s still not happening for the captain. Not yet. But it will. It will. Right, people?
Soriano gave me a heart attack with the leadoff walk in the ninth, but I figured he’d be okay in that dome. After all, it’s not all that different from the Trop where he never had to worry about catching cold.
P.S. Now that MLB has taken control of the Dodgers (poor Donnie), how long before Selig announces that Torre will be the team’s interim chief? Any bets?
