The Yankee bats are beating the White Sox pitchers like a rented mule. Five more bombs tonight, including Frankenstein’s 5th in 8 games. I fully expect Shelley to have a seat on the bench for tomorrow’s day game.
Pettitte was excellent, and Posada continues to make a fool of everyone (myself included) who thought his production was going to taper off in the second half. Jorge has his batting average up to .341 and he slammed a pair of home runs tonight.
Joba pitched another perfect inning of relief for AA Trenton. 1 IP, 0 hits, 0 walks, 0 runs, 2 Ks. The word on the street is that Chamberlain was moved back to AA so he could be closer to the Bronx for a imminent call up. He’s coming folks, maybe as soon as Saturday.
Clemens vs. Garland tomorrow. No Letter to the Skipper tonight, the reason? Exhaustion.
Good night, Yankee fans.
Player of The Game: Jorge Posada, 2 for 4, 2 runs, 3 RBIs, 2 HR.
