It’s pathetic the way the Yankees have spoiled me with this crazy winning streak of theirs. I was watching tonight’s game as if there was no contest. Even after the Braves scored first off CC and even though our offense couldn’t do a thing with this guy Minor and even though it looked like we might lose at long last, I said out loud, “Somebody will find a way and we’ll win this one too.”
And, of course, that’s what happened.
Whatever problems CC’s been having vanished after the first inning. He said he and Rothschild made an adjustment and it showed with a complete game and 10 Ks. No need to worry about his pitch count and no need to use our bullpen. Brilliance.
And the offense had a little of everything – hits with RISP and the homers we’ve come to expect. More brilliance.
Could we petition Bud Selig to keep the Yanks playing teams in the NL East?
Update: Here’s a photo of the Grandy Man that Ruth took at one of the games against the Nats. He’s adorable, isn’t he?
