– *WHAT’S GOING ON TOMARROW?*
Tickets“); – *THE YANKEES GO HARD IN BOSTON*
Where do I begin? We all know the Red Sox kicked off this season undefeated against New York to stir up the rivalry. We all know that New York defied the critics and swept the Red Sox when the next chance presented itself. What would be a fair assessment for the next matchup?
Last night, we witnessed what most fans hadn’t even dreamed of. The Yankees didn’t just win – the Yankees dominated. New York put up so many runs, falling asleep couldn’t even help the Red Sox realistically comeback… Here’s the deal:
– *A-ROD ROBBED OF THE CYCLE*
It was definently a huge night for A-Rod, but what most people failed to notice is that he was an inch away from the cycle! The triple was there, the single was there – but the homerun fell a foot shallow of clearing the ‘Big Green Monster,’ – and the double was scratched when he was tagged out at second. Ok – so I guess he wasn’t really “robbed,” but missing those two hits in that fashion was a low-blow to me. He ended the day 4 for 4 with an RBI, and one run scored…
– *MATSUI ALMOST PARKED THREE*
What can top Rodriguez going 4 for 4? How about Hideki Matsui hitting 2 homeruns, and nearly hitting a 3rd to the right field wall! I know, I know… “almost doesn’t count,” – but when you smash two in the same game, and a long fly ball has the distance to clear the fence for another – power is power. “Almost” is approriate…
– *JETER BEING JETER*
How did Derek Jeter handle pressure in Boston? *Yawn* The tipical .500 night with 2 RBI’s and 3 runs scored… Nothing major. Nothing remotely MVP worthy…
– *STOP HITTING YOURSELF!*
Damon was removed from the game after continuously hitting foul balls into his leg. C’mon now Johnny – save the ball-wounds for the pitchers that love you.
– *MORE BOLD LETTERS?*
Another headline indeed. Teixeira may of had the best ‘underdog’ day of all, going 3 for 5 with 3 RBI’s and 3 runs scored. That’s a ‘Tex message’ we all need to download…
*THE RETURN OF MARTE*
Damaso Marte returned to the mound for the first time since May. He pitched a solid two-thirds of an inning, allowing nothing across the plate and striking out one.
